Question: I have to have a Lavh because of pelvic organ prolapse and I am so afraid.? I am not sure if I can go through with it. I have lower back pain, pinching and pulling and pain in my groin and I am not sure if that is from the prolapse or not. I have my surgery next month. Please if you have had this done or know someone who has had this done tell me how it was I am afraid of needles and everthing concerning hospitals but when I cough I feel something come out and go back in so I know it needs to be fixed and I am terrified. If you can tell me anything on this please do!!! Thanks

Answer: I had a tah-bso. the Lavh is much less invasive and takes less time to heal. You should be up and around the next day and the incision should heal within a few weeks. You will feel sooo much better when you don't have to worry about all that stuff any more. The only needle is the IV they put in your arm. They will take you into the operating room and one minute you are talking to the tech and the next minute you are back in your room and it is all done. You will feel really hazy and groggy for a while after you wake up, but if you just rest for a while, you will feel better. The most annoying thing is trying to get any sleep at the hospital. Just be aware that they will wake you up to do this and that all night long. Once you get home, Have someone to help you with the first few days home. You will be so glad you did it. I found this website a wonderful help called You are in my prayers.
