Hysterectomy what to expect afterwards?

@cheriels I had a radical hysterectomy at Mayo Clinic at Methodist Hospital (now Charlton Bldg.) in Rochester. Everyone I encountered did their best to help me to feel comfortable and taken care of. It was a same day procedure. I checked in very early in the morning, had the procedure mid-morning and was back in our hotel room by late afternoon. When I was in post-recovery my doctor came to room to check in with me and told me what the early pathology results were and then I got the final results a few days later. I was very tired after the surgery and for about two weeks after. It was a robotic laparoscopic procedure so I had only a few incisions on the outside but lots of healing on the inside to do.

You will be taken care of so well at Mayo. Keep the focus on you and your healing and then you will be in a better place to help your fiance with his.

Please let me know how your appointment goes today and what the doctor says. Best wishes to you.
