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.
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.
