  • Robin, I had an abd hysterectomy on 12May 08. I was in moderate pain for about 3 days. They gave me Dilauded via the button you push and it made me really nauseated. Once you eat, go potty & can get up and around you can go home. Once home for about 3 weeks you can do almost NOTHING. Expect to be limited on what you do for about 4 weeks and off work at least 6!!
    TAKE IT EASY post op!! Do NOT try to push yourself!!
    Let me know when surg is. PM me so we can stay in contact.
