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.

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

        welcome welcome - 23 lbs pre/post op is great. you are doing fine. keep up the good work. kathy

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
