Also low back pain and frequent uti I have had 3 sence dec .
I have been diagnosed with ibs and divecilitis .went yesterday for another ultrasound the nurse sayed no cysts but states my tubes are not as flexable and the fibroids may be causeung the pain so i go back next wed for a apt to see the dr .

Some of the posts are scarring me . but i knoow every one is different ?
hi welcome to the forum Hope I can help !! rupterued cyst from where? Ovary..that is usually soooo painful most land in er...normal size fibroids does not mean no need for concern..she just means they are not so big they are endangering surrounding organs,,,fibroids can do some strange things..glad yours are in normal range.
I hate to say it but often the BC pills are like a bandaid fix works for a bit or not at all. Yes the drs do give the narcotic pain meds cause you really need them, its often the only way to treat such pain, but keep in mond your just masking the pain and narcotics can be addictive,,,also as you said makes you tired ( can be good at night !!!) not so much in day.
I will tell you what a good Dr friend told me once may sound harsh but its true..You can not be the best Mom you can be, the best spouce you can be, the best friend, employee, etc....unless your kind to yourself and keep yourself happy...if mamma aint happy nobodys happy....your health is top priority for now ok!!
utis normally uncommon for you? the diverticulitis they told you no seeds, nuts corn right? IBS in same area of gyn problems but a whole different system these 3 diseases are excretaory system.
I deal with the reproductive system...so you may wish to post about the other issues on uro/gyn or IBS forum to get some good info about that...I know some but much more about the hyster issues, and female problems,,it is quite likely they are connected..ie...my hyster my ovary was attached to my bowel with endo tissue.
My personal opinion is pelvic or transvaginal ultrasounds are not very good diagnostic tests for cysts..they couldnt even find my ovary once on one and Im a thin girl. A diagnostic laproscopy or a colposcopy is much better physician can actually view internal organs. Endometriosis can be definatley diagnosed this way.
You are getting the VERY number one BEST form of a hysterectomy that exsists. I had that kind you will heal quicker, bleed less have much smaller scars.what they can do via Da Vinci is remarkable very precise incisions (small) and cauterisations,,,much less need for sutures,,no staples ever.
Still having ovaries is very good means no instant menopause ! Alot of the posts on here are well..just different...I answer all honestly cause thats what you all deserve..
When you wake up you will be on a IV drip with pain meds...they will probably have your legs wrapped in velcrov leg device that is hooked to machine at end of bed it goes on and off regularly it give your legs a gentle squeeze prevents blood clots...You will have a tube like device with a ball in it anesetesia will show you how to use keeps lungs strong post op...Most likely day 1 after surgery they will get you up in chair..day 2 you will be walking hall (yup it hurts ) its for your own best though ! the longer inactive the harder it is to get up and walk. You will likely go home day 3 depends on insurance
the risks of serious side effects are much less with DaVinci..Your very right everyones anatomy is different and everyones tolerance to pain is different.
My very best advice when you get home follow those post op directions to a t,,,doing nothing for 2 weeks means just that literally...couch time,,,stock up on movies books etc..big problem can prevent speak w dr pre op ask about stool softner...narcotics will 4 sure bind you up you do not want to strain w a bowel movement after a hyster..especially w your bowel issues..no laxatives Please ask dr its important.
then the usuall no sex avoid stairs no lifting excessive bending etc...
