  • Hi Becky, I suppose its difficult to tell with LAVH because we cant see there can we. If the incision was abdominal we can see it. I dunno, Not seeing consultant for another 6 weeks. I could have seen her 2 weeks time or 6 because Easter came in between and she then on holiday. I thought 2 weeks is too soon so have opted for the later date.…[Read more]

  • Hello Mrs Heckers, well done hope you make a speedy recovery. Hi Becky was joking about the huge.. yes very long and not very thick!! However, at this time a pencil swab is thick lol I really didnt want anything poking around in there. I am 2 weeks post op and really havent done anything so am still worried about this dragging stuff. I have…[Read more]

  • Hiya, I had to go to London to have the cathetar and bladder scan as this was already booked (Tuesday) as part of the follow up to having the tot removed. On Monday I saw the local gynae who did the vaginal scan!! Yep… argh… well it took 3 nurses to almost hold me down… I was terrified.. it was bloody huge… would make my eyes water on a…[Read more]

  • Hi Becki

    Yes I saw a local consultant, and they did a scan a vaginal one (ouch) I nearly hit the roof… lol.. said no collections, took a swab. Waiting for results of infection but to be truthful I feel so much better today. Had cathetar out on Tuesday and had to have a bladder scan because my bladder has been resectioned due to the removal of…[Read more]

  • Hi Becky and all

    I can relate to that heaviness I feel that too, top of vagina like something falling down. Worrying me a bit because it was like that but much worse before the hysterectomy and I had a womb prolapse, worrying that its all going to fall out! Im feeling a lot better than I was, have finished the anti biotics, not in anywhere…[Read more]

  • Hi girlies, does anyone have any thoughts on this… it may sound a bit silly, but we know we shouldnt bend, or squat .. I like to lay on the bed on my side with my knees bent… do you think this puts pressure on the vagina/wound area? Or do you think you should lay flat??? Lizzy x

  • Hi Rachel Idont know whether this will help. I had LASH, adhesiolysis, and a tot removal. I also had to have my bladder resectioned as to remove the tot my surgeon had to cut my bladder away. I had a cathetar for 2 weeks it was removed yesterday. It will just give your bladder a chance to rest. How long did they say it will be in for and did…[Read more]

  • Thanks Becki, tot is a tape they fit for stress in continence. I suppose I am trying to ascertain how painful others are finding it with vaginal hysterectomy. She said she made a large incision just behind the cervix is that what everyone else had done who had vag hysterectomy. If so how much pain are they all having. We talk a lot about the…[Read more]

  • Hi Mickeygem and Beckie, thank you for answering. Im a bit devil and deep blue sea!! I went private as I had private health care and because I had a tot removal (which is not an operation that is carried out very often, due to the problems that are just arising with the tots .. I will put the biggest health cover up that the NHS is about…[Read more]

  • Hi ladies good to see some of you are doing so well. I am having trouble keeping up with everyone. I am in so much pain and feeling quite desperate at the moment. I am now 10 days post op. I realise I didnt just have the hysterectomy but had the tot removal as well so there has been a lot of pulling. My surgeon had difficulty getting my womb…[Read more]

  • Ladies ill give you something to laugh about. After the operation I didnt feel anything at all obviously due to all the meds. At 2am in the morning I woke up to feel vaginal orgasms!! I had 2 hours of them and was exhausted!! There must have been 20 in all…. I asked my consultant the next day what on earth was all that about. As I had had a…[Read more]

  • I have been having blood from my bottom, my hysterectomy was on Tuesday 12th Feb so only a few days post. My consultant said its due to the suppositories diclofenic they have been using. Are you using any suppositories? lizzy

  • Hello ladies, I am now on the couch!! I havent been able to get on line and I’m still in hospital at the moment. I had a bit of a rough time as I had a tvto removal at the same time of the hysterectomy. Consultant said me womb was the size of a large grapefruit and very hard, she did manage to remove it vaginally although I think there was quite…[Read more]

  • You are all so lovely on here, thank you for your good wishes. I have spent today on off the loo… due to having to take the stuff to clear the bowel as I am having other procedures as well as the hysterectomy, I have done all the washing, tumble drying putting some things away that I have been meaning to do since Christmas and I have really…[Read more]

  • I had an endometrial abolation in 2004 and all was well for years, no periods, no pain was brilliant. However I now have a very large womb which is pressing down and causing pain. I wonder whether the abolation caused it it is adoneymic (I cant spell it) sorry and has adhesions as well. At the same time I was sterilized but have found that one…[Read more]

  • HI All, I am having hysterectomy plus a TVTO removal next Tuesday 12th February at 8am.. sowith you all. Am really worried but am in pain so am praying it will sort it all out. Because I am having additional surgery to the hysterectomy I have been told I will be off work for at least 3 months. I was due the op in January but last minute…[Read more]

  • Hello ladies, I had a tvto fitted 6 years ago. I do not want to go into all the details, but you need to persevere with your consultants if there are problems. There are some additional ‘mesh’ support groups if you need some help. Do not be fobbed off by your gynaes and if you have a problem please report it to the MHRA who are currently asking…[Read more]
