On September 19th I had a full hysterectomy , removal of both tubes & ovaries along with some excision of endometriosis . I'd previously had stage 4 endo and two laps with endo on my bowel & bladder.
It's early days but things seem to be going ok. When I had the lap where endo was removed from my bowel, I had to drink a bowel prep that made me go to the loo at lot. I have gotten a lot of help and advice from the hysterectomy association .
As for hospital bag, in my bag I had lip sill, big pants, 2 nighties, thin dressing gown, plastic carrier bags for sending washing home, tissues, baby wipes, back scratcher, boiled sweets, slippers, magazine, note book and pen, tablets, wash bag, eye mask, ear plugs, always night time pads which were suggested when I went for my pre op, phone charger, phone, tooth brush, water, juice boxes , dried fruit and ear plugs . (btw nighties are good in case of catheter).
Since getting home a grabber stick and dry shampoo have been a godsend!
Feel free to ask me any questions or send me a message. The waiting s the worst bit of the op!
