    vertical or horizontal incision?

    If you had an abdominal hysterectomy, do you have a vertical or horizontal incision/scar? How did you heal? Why were you not a candidate for a transvaginal laprascopic hysterectomy? I'm not sure what type I'll have. I have early stage uterine cancer.

    Re: vertical or horizontal incision?

    Sorry no one has replied to you after all this time!!
    I had an abdominal hysterectomy with a vertical incision due to a huge fibroid.
    I healed very well. My scar runs from my pubic area up to the midway point between it
    and my bellybutton.
    I wish you the very, very best!!
