Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

Do I Need Medication After the Operation?

  • Your doctor may order pain medication to take when you need it. Call your doctor if this does not take away your pain.  Being comfortable promotes healing.
  • Do not drink alcohol while taking pain medication.
  • A stool softener will be ordered. Walking or rocking may help to relieve gas pains.
