I was exactly the same! I practically ran into the hospital on my surgery day… My family thought i was crazy!
I had different surgery to you so I’m not sure on what will be the same etc.
I was admitted at 7:30am but didn’t actually go down until 1:30pm… We all got to sit in a room and just wait!! … I can honestly say the worst part was that I was hungry!!
My op took about 7 hours and when I came round I was hooked up to morphine - amazing stuff.
I was quite lucky in that I didn’t experience much pain!
When you come round there will be lots of tubes… I has my catheter, a drain for my lymph fluid and my morphine… These all were taken away each day before I could go home… I was in for 5 days all together.
Have you been given a list of what to pack and take in with you?
My advice would be to just be honest with all the nurses… If you’re in pain or struggling let them know and don’t try to be brave! They’re there to help you
I’m sure one of the other ladies that have had a hysterectomy will come along and give there advice… I didn’t want to read and run!
