Please share Experiences!! LAVHyster w/rectocele, cystocele & Endo check coming up
Please share your experiences with me!!!
I am scheduled in 3 weeks to have a lap assisted vaginal hysterectomy leaving my left ovary for hormone purposes, as well as repair of a cystocele, rectocele and check for endometriosis and remove any if found. They are taking my right ovary because I have been having problems with hemorrhagic cyst and continual pain in that area, but want to leave my left so that I don't go into menopause right now.
I would just like some feedback from anyone that has had any of these surgeries somewhat recently. Were there any complications? Do you have any advice? Experiences to share?
I am a little concerned about the repair of the cystocele because my Mom had to have a bladder sling procedure when she had a hysterectomy and her bladder didn't "wake up" for several months. She had to cath herself for the entire time until it started working again. This was back in 1997 so I am hoping technology has changed.
Thanks for any info you can provide.
