Vaginal hysterectomy

Posted , 4 users are following.

I ve just recently been referred and seen by Gynae and am booked to have a vaginal hysterectomy in February because of a prolapse.  Would really like to hear from people who had this done for same reason.  How was your recovery?  I m due to go abroad on holiday eight weeks after the surgery and worried I may have to cancel.

    Hi Clarissabelle, snap, I am hoping to have my hysterectomy in February too.  I have a cystocele pressing on my bladder which is detaching, and causing all sorts of problems, so I am just praying this op will sort it all out.  It would be lovely to know how everyone is recovering with these sorts of problems.  Good luck for February, hope all goes very well and you get your holiday.  Warmest Wishes Jacqui

      Hi Jacqi.  My op is booked for 24th.  Was offered two weeks earlier but we  re also away beginning of February.  All seems very quick.  I was only referred by my GP at the end of November.  I m also hoping for miracles from this op.  Hope all goes well for you too.  Would be good to keep in touch and compare our progress

    Hi Clarissabelle, gosh you were referred very quickly.  I have been waiting two years, but some of that is my fault, I was trying to sort everything out with 'self help'.  I have come a long way, from going to the toilet every 20 mins I can now go just about 3 hours.  This was due to giving up wheat and sugar, and a few other bits and pieces that irritate the bladder, but the bladder is still detaching and my cystocele is pressing badly on the bladder so I need the op, no way round it!  I really hope you get your miracle and you are 100% after the op and recovery time.  

    It would be smashing to stay in touch and compare notes, and help each other through it all.  Good luck for the 24th.

      I m actually panicking a bit as to why it's being done so quickly.  When GP examined me she said it was a bladder prolapse but Gynaecologist said it's a womb prolapse with a bit of damage to anterior wall as well.  I suppose it is better to get it over with as soon as possible.  Bit fed up with ops as I ve had seven operations on my leg in the last six years following an accident.  The doc actually said this will be like a walk in the park after all I ve had done.  You ve done really well with the self help if you. Ve improved that much but hopefully this op will end all your problems.  I m having it done in Manchester.

      Hi Clarissabelle, you have been through it haven't you, hopefully your op will sort out everything and you can get back to being you!  Don't worry too much about which prolapse it is, apparently once one bit goes, the rest follows along, my surgeon said they have a good look at everything and stitch back whatever needs doing.  I think you need some serious spoiling and pampering after your op, and some lovely treats.

      Warmest Wishes Jacqui
