I had my total hysterectomy recently. As far as the hysterectomy is concerned all went really well. Op stayed keyhole as planned and I seemed to be doing well. That is until the morning after when they removed my catheter and I went for my first pee.
Almost all women experience the side effect of having an infection after they have had a hysterectomy, and the most common infections after a hysterectomy are: • Urinary tract infection • Infection of any abdominal wounds.
Any woman who has a hysterectomy does so for her own reasons. I had a total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy 7 weeks ago, two weeks after celebrating my 40th Birthday.
I guess I have been lucky on the whole compared to a lot of the stories I have read. I went in for a hysterectomy feeling confident that I was in good shape and everything would go according to plan.
