If you have a supracervical hysterectomy, what position is a patient in for pain later?

Depends: How the procedure is done is more important to pain levels than the actual procedure. What i mean by this is whether you had an "open" procedure, with a larger incision, or a laparscopic procedure. The less invasive approach, smaler incisions, have less discomfort after surgery.
