I am going to have laparoscopic surgery for a hysterectomy

I am going to have laparoscopic surgery for a hysterectomy and my bladder suspension because I have a prolapse uterus. How long on average is the surgery for both because a urologist and a GYN is going to be working at the same time and what is the recovery period after the surgery?

I just had laparoscopic surgery for a partial hysterectomy. The hospital wanted me to fill up a jug to at least 150 ml of urine before letting me go. They also mentioned that my urine was very concentrated. This was after about 3-4 hours of intravenous fluids plus a few cups of water after the surgery was over. What could be wrong with me?

Hello, I am a 50 year old female that has recently been scheduled for a hysterectomy. I have had problems with fibroids for many years and now have the equivalent of a 5-6 month fetus living in there. My doctor told me my uterus is 10 times the size it should be so a full abdominal cut hysterectomy is my only option. I have to be honest, the thought of major surgery scares me to death which is why I put it off this long, and hoping I might go through menopause also. I guess my question is, is this the only option I have? I was hoping for the less invasive laporascopic surgery but I was told this was not an option due to the size. Also, is this a relatively safe surgery for someone that is otherwise healthy?

I was advised of the need for a supracervical hysterectomy . Remove both ovaries, both fallopian tubes and uterus (leaving cervix ). I ve had four ultrasounds and one MRI since January 2012. Cysts in the right ovary continue to get bigger. Cyst in left ovary has disappeared for now. have fibroids in uterus and in ovaries (I believe?) as well. My obgyn , who I really like - and he has delivered my children, said HE would perform a c-section type hysterectomy. Or, if I would like to try laprascopic, he will refer me to a colleague to see if I am a candidate. Comments are very much appreciated.
