45 min to 2 hours: Of course, there are too many variables to answer accurately, and the patient shouldn't worry because they will be asleep the whole time! The time depends on the type of hysterectomy (abdominal, laparoscopic, or robotic), the size of the uterus, and any scarring or adhesions in the abdomen (often not know until the procedure is started). ...Read more

Can I take prednisone before my hysterectomy scheduled in four days...? I will only be taking 2, 10 mg prednisone tabs 2 days prior to surgery
HUH???: It says you are male. Males do not have a uterus. Are you transgender? IMPERATIVE that you see the anesthesia and surgical teams immediately. You foolishly omitted the reason for prednisone or the duration of use. You probably have adrenal suppression and need hydrocortisone during and after surgery. ...Read more
If someone with endometriosis has a total hysterectomy, are the chances of endometriosis not coming back better if they don't take HRT after surgery?
Yes, theorectically: If a "total hysterectomy" is performed, that is, removal of the uterus and both ovaries, the body's natural source of estrogen is greatly reduced. If then hrt is taken, that estrogen can theoretically stimulate growth of endometriois, but the progestin taken will counteract the estrogen's effects. Practically I would not worry about taking hrt if hot flashes are very bothersome. ...Read more

I had a hysterectomy/bso at age 35 (now 37). No hrt. Since then, running long distances causes shin pain. Doing everything right. Related to surgery?
I don't think shin splints are related to your hysterectomy. Do you get the pain after a certain distance that you run? Is the pain in both legs? Do you do any weight training or stretching?
I always become concerned with stress fractures. We see it in distance runners, more so in women then men. It sometimes manifests after running 3 or 4 miles. ...Read more
How long do you have pain urinating and pain with bowel movement after a total hysterectomy surgery?
Depends: In general it should not be painful to urinate or have a bowel movement. Of course pain is relative to the individual having the pain. It is common to have bladder and bowel symptoms especially cramping with urination and constipation. If prolonged or true burning with urination or severely increasing abdominal pain or fever, call your doctor. ...Read more
Yes: Hysterectomy, regardless of route, is considered a major surgery. Howver, robotic hysterectomy is less invasive than open abdominal hysterectomy with quicker recovery and less pain. So there are definite advantages for robotic or laparoscopic surgery when compared to abdominal hysterectomy. Fortunately, abdominal hysterectomy is not needed very often today. ...Read more
Depends what type: An open hyster takes the longest to recover with 8 weeks of disability, 1-3 days before you walk comfortably, & 6 weeks before you can resume full activities. Usually meds are given for the first week and then tapered off. Vaginal, total laparoscopic, lsc assisted, & robotic all have quicker recoveries, prob in reverse order. It depends on the complexity of the surgery & skill level of surgeon. ...Read more
Can anybody tell me why a hysterectomy is a hard surgery for a woman to recover from. I've had many surgeries but this one is the worse one ever.
What type?: There are minimally invasive hysterectomies and traditional abdominal hysterectomies. I'm thinking that you likely had an abdominal hyst where they made an incision like a cesarean section? If so, as we age, surgery becomes harder to heal from, we don't bounce back as easily. If the surgery was for endometriosis, you could have issues with scar formation that cause pain. Lots of different poss. ...Read more
Can be: This is a procedure that requires a highly trained specialist who has plenty of experience in this procedure. In the right hands of a well trained surgeon, it can be highly successful. ...Read more
Depends: It depends on the size of the fibroid and the skill of the surgeon. Some surgeons are very skilled at minimally invasive or robotic surgeries and are comfortable even with very large fibroids. Make sure you are evaluated by someone skilled in advanced laparoscopy/robotics for an opinion if a different doc tells you that you must have an open hysterectomy. That's not always the case! ...Read more
