  • I have the smiley face in my pubic hair, so I don’t know from personal experience, but, my girlfriend had a vaginal, and she went home with a catheter.

  • When I had my surgery they put a catheter in while I was under anesthesia but it was out when I woke up.

  • I had a vaginal, and I had a catheter until the night before I went home from the hospital. But I didn't go home with it. With surgery, a person is usually too sore to get up much, and so I was actually glad for it.

  • I had the old fashioned hystorectomy done 28 years ago and was young. But, a couple friends and my Mother in law had the vaginal one done and they just had a cath. while in the hospital.
    Hoping you will do well when they are all done.
    You will probably feel really well once you heal. The only thing that I regretted was not having more children. I was only 22 when I had mine done.
