After the surgery, I couldn’t believe how good I felt so fast and no big scar!
When my gynecologist told me I was finally going to get my hysterectomy, I was thrilled! I had suffered for years with painful heavy periods. When she told me she would only do it abdominally because of my precious C sections, I was crushed. I didn’t want ANOTHER big scar across my belly. I didn’t want to be out of work and unable to care for my family for 6 to 8 weeks.
Then my mother told me about Dr. Hayes and the new things she was doing with laparoscopic surgery. Dr. Hayes couldn’t have been nicer! She met with me and explained everything to me. She felt confident she could perform the surgery with the use of the Da Vinci robot. I even discussed the possibility of having plastic surgery done at the same time and not only was she supportive; she offered to coordinate her schedule with the plastic surgeon.
After the surgery, I couldn’t believe how good I felt so fast and no big scar! I was back at work in about 3 weeks. I am so happy I had the surgery. I feel like I have my life back! Thank you Dr. Hayes!
The recovery was faster and better than I expected
Dr. Hayes had been referred to my by two women that had surgery by her that were very satisfied with their results. Although I was worried about having surgery, I was confident that the surgery would go well and so it did. The recovery was faster and better than I expected. I would recommend Dr. Hayes to all my friends and relatives.
I would recommend Dr. Hayes to anyone needing this type of surgery
I was referred to Dr. Jennifer Hayes through a co-worker. I needed surgery to repair a fallen bladder. When I first met with Dr. Hayes, I immediately felt at ease. Dr. Hayes is very professional; she examined me thoroughly and did not rush me through. She took the time to explain the procedure to me (Robotic Sacrocolpopexy), tell me what my options were and answered all the questions I had about the procedures. Once my surgery was completed, I was not as sore as I would have been with any other procedure. I had robotic surgery and after two weeks I was up and about. I would recommend Dr. Hayes to anyone needing this type of surgery.
The operation that Dr. Hayes performed totally changed my life
I was diagnosed with pelvic prolapse at the age of 61 in NY. The doctor who treated me at that time recommended Kegel exercises and did not explain any other treatment options. When we moved to Florida, a year later, I researched this condition further and discovered Dr. Hayes website. When I read about the robotic surgery that she does – it seemed an answer to my prayers. From the first visit, Dr. Hayes was very understanding and told me that not only had my bladder dropped but also my cervix had fallen. She recommended robotic surgery and explained the entire procedure that would be done to me to correct my condition. She gave me hope that my condition could be corrected.
I went into the hospital on a Friday morning and I was back in my home on Saturday afternoon. My recuperation was amazing. Within a week or two, I started to do little things. I was cautious about stretching and bending down for something but the discomfort was minimal. I found using a pillow to sleep with gave me support to my stomach as I lay on my side. The operation that Dr. Hayes performed totally changed my life. I feel fantastic. I would definitely recommend this robotic surgery and especially Dr. Hayes to anyone having the same condition.
You and your whole team are so supportive and helpful to women like me who get anxious before procedures
I thank you so much for all you have done for me. I am happy and healthy and going on with life. You and your whole team are so supportive and helpful to women like me who get anxious before procedures, let alone a total hysterectomy. You inspired such confidence. You actually listened to my fears and addressed them. While I know women who have had robotic hysterectomies and told me it was really an easy recovery, I am old enough to know many women who had open surgery for their hysterectomies and took months to recover. I was apprehensive. (Read that SCARED).
All my fear was wasted energy! You and your team and Morton Plant Hospital did a great job. I had no problems with the anesthesia, the nurses on the floor were so nice that night, and I was home the next day. Then I waited for the difficult recovery. And waited, and waited. I was very tired the first week after surgery and slept a lot. The second week I did more, and was still a little tired. I had practically no pain at all. I think I may have taken 1 or 2 pain pills at night, but that was all. I still can’t believe I had a major surgery without any hassle or pain! My recovery was ridiculously easy. I recommend the robotic surgery without any hesitation. The Robot is only as good as the person operating it and you are the best, a truly skilled and caring surgeon. Your compassion shows in all aspects of your practice. Walking into your office and discussing my GYN issues was one of the best decisions in my life.
