How long the carbon gas go away after a Laperoscopy hysterectomy. What can I do? Or Eat? Take? To make me feel better I'm 3days PO. Surger
Depends: Vaginal hysterectomies take about 1/2 an hour. Laparoscopic hysterectomies typically last about an hour and a 1/2. If there is any distortion in the anatomy like scar tissue it can take much longer.
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).See 2 more doctor answers

I had a vaginal hysterectomy october 18. I know I can't have vaginal sex. Can I have anal sex? How long after the surgery
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.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
About 4 to 6 weeks: The healing process is about 80% complete at 6 weeks, the final 20% takes almost an entire year. The risk of incision breaking apart with coughing, straining or lifting follows this healing process. Okay to ask your surgical team specifics about your case. Be well.

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?
Shin Splints: 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.See 1 more doctor answer
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.
Please don't: If you were sent home after surgery with a catheter then there is likely a good reason that was done. Please do not try to remove your own catheter. Contact your doctor if you were not already given explicit instructions on what to do.
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.See 5 more doctor answers
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.
