Hysterectomy and Bypass Surgery



Recommended Posts

Youch! Nobody wants my uterus, I keep offering because I have a cystocele and rectocele, thought I needed a repair, last gynie told me "You've kept it for 72 years- I don't want to go through the trouble" impertinent twit, should have told him he doesn't know feng shui, his exam room is laid out WRONG!

I had my hysterectomy last year in August and my wls this April. My ob/gyn did the hysterectomy and my wls was done by a bariatric surgeon.

And you were happy with both their processes and action?

Frustr8 if you are asking me if I am happy with it, yes I am. It gave me time to heal between and if I had complications it was easier to pinpoint from where and what kind of dr to see. With follow-up care, I knew/know what specialist to go to. I know my menstrual issues could have been weight loss related, but I am done having kids anyway, so take it all was what I said.

Yeah I would think the gap did help, I think it would be uber-hard to do them both at ONCE!

I would think so too. Both are pretty invasive. I've had 3 C-sections and my gall bladder removed. The wls seemed more painful moving around but it was from all the gas inside me and the darn drainage bulb. Once it was out, it was easier to move around. Passing gas felt good once it was out, but trying to get it out hurt like the dickens. Now, I have no problem. LOL

Thank you johnsons13... that is good information. Never thought to have separation to know if complications arise where it’s coming from?!? Idek if I want to rush into making a decision. I just had a biopsy done today so maybe looking to see what comes back on that!

I scheduled my hysterectomy last year around the beginning of June for August 1st. My hubby had a quadruple bypass the end of june and I thought I was going to have to reschedule, but it worked out. During that time I was fighting my old doctors office for proof of visits to please my insurance company. I ended up getting a new Dr so I had to go to my 6 visits all over again. So that gave me 6 months to heal from the hysterectomy and to prepare for the wls. I know that everything happened in the time it was supposed to and not my time.

One thing that bugs me and maybe it shouldn't. Every time I go to my urologist office they ask if I have had a hysterectomy.? Apparently post hyster. you go to the same setting as men for their ultrasound when they scan see if your bladder emptied out. They have asked so many times I feel like an "underacheiver: because I still have an uterus, and if that Verdompt Dr Prior has way I never will get rid of it. So stop asking. already, okay?

Anyone ever have a hysterectomy and bypass surgery together?

Hi

Not together at the same time, but I did have a hysterectomy March 2014 and RNY 07/30/18. Both are the best things I had done for my health in my life. Not having to deal with a period for all these years have been a blessing and I have had not problems.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.

      Wow looking through my own eyes I just don't see 50 lbs done.  I took the side my side picture from 4 months ago to today's and can only see some change.  I hope I can keep loosing.  I just read that the window or the honeymoon stage of weight lost is in the first 4 months after that it will slow down and you have to work even harder to keep it going.  Trying to keep positive even if it is one pound I lost in 2 weeks.

      So I had my surgery on Jan 7th. At this point I haven't eaten anything for 2 weeks am giving myself my injections. I can barely stomach the protein shakes that I am to have twice a day. I have noticed a small weight loss not as much as I thought I would have since I haven't eaten anything. I haven't started working out at the gym yet. I broke in a horrible case of hives from my incisions but have since been cleared up. I didn't really have any nausea from my surgery. I don't even feel like I had surgery. I am sure once I start eating  I will notice. To ask others. I have sleeve surgery so wondering if anyone else out there had this surgery how did you feel after. When did you start eating foods. I am nervous to start eating. I drink my 64oz plus water a day but that's about it that I am taking in other than the occasional sugar free Popsicle.

        In the beginning, I was sure that I would go straight to malnutrition hell if I missed even a dose. Turns out, it takes several weeks to months to get yourself in any substantial trouble. My excellent labwork has proven to me that it's not just okay to skip (out of laziness or accidentally) your supplements, but it probably saves you a couple of bucks here and there. Mellow out is my new mantra. Go the best you can with hydration, protein, and your recommended supplements. Trying to live a stress-free life is infinitely more important than your supplements for any given day. (None of this little blabfest was intended for the lovely and ever-knowledgable GT.)
