Total Abdominal Hysterectomy

User Profile
I'm scheduled for a total abdominal hysterectomy on Tuesday April 20 and I just started my period. My question is will I still be able to have the hysterectomy done while I'm on my period.

Call your physician in the morning and tell him/her of this happening...Some say yes and some say no...I had mine out years ago and had just started the day before too...I was shocked, but the intern told me they did this all the time...Either way, good luck....Take care...

Period during procedure...
I just had the procedure on March the 2nd. Started my period that morning at the office. Not trying to be graphic but I was a heavy bleeder. Well no harm no foul.. I was given a pair of mesh panties and a pad and sent right back to prep. A few hours a later. I was done and NO MORE PERIOD...! Good Luck...& Relax.
