After the surgery, you will go to a recovery room. In here, your healthcare team will watch over you and help you as the anesthesia wears off. You will usually stay here about 1 to 2 hours.
When you wake up, you will have the catheter in your bladder. You might also have special socks on your legs. These socks help your blood circulate better.
Most women have pain in their vagina or abdomen after the surgery. Your healthcare provider can give you medicine to help this. You may also shiver or feel sick to your stomach from the anesthesia. If you feel this way, tell your care givers and they can help make you comfortable.
Remember that your healthcare team wants you to get better without any problems, so be sure to let them know how you are feeling, especially if anything feels abnormal or "not right."
