Hysterectomy outpatient

Common Questions and Answers about Hysterectomy outpatient


Avatar_f_tn Removing ovaries is not a hysterectomy...it's an oophortectomy. Hysterectomy is removal of the uterus. I'm not sure exactly what your doctor is recommending, what tests were performed, or what the surgery recommendation is based upon. Ovaries can be removed laparoscopically by small incisions or by open incision (laparotomy).
Avatar_n_tn I would be grateful if there is anyone who can tell me how it has been if they have had a hysterectomy following cyst investigation. I have two children, and am preparing myself for the possibilities of what may happen during the op. I am going to go for the laprascopic investigation and give consent for the consultant to operate on me if he thinks it is necessary. But I will only do this if I feel that the information on life after a hysterectomy appears to be bearable.
442027_tn?1209869942 But, because I've had ongoing problems since Sept 2006 and it's continuing to get worse and more intense with the Cyst turning into Complex and Solid Masses he doesn't want to mess around. I'm having a Full Hysterectomy and it looks like it'll be the beginning of April sometime. He assured me that MANY TIMES they are benign tumors and he's seen much LARGER ones with many other women that were benign. It's consistered a Outpatient Surgery, because there isn't a long stay in the hospital.
308998_tn?1233708502 I had the option of them just taking my ovaries and tubes or doing a total hysterectomy. One of the Dr's. recommended the total hysterectomy as I have several fibroids. The main Dr. (this is a teaching hospital - I've never had so many people in the room!) said it will extend the surgery by an hour and she didn't really offer an opinion other than to say if it is cancer they will take everything and do staging etc.
Avatar_n_tn My husband knew how much 'pain' I was in over what had happened and finally broke down and suggested that I talk to my doctor about getting a hysterectomy. I'm 35. While researching hysterectomy, I found something called Endometrial Ablation which is much less invasive, but still results in infertility. I am overweight, but otherwise healthy. No problems with thyroid, diabetes, blood pressure, cholesterol and my last anemia count a month ago was normal.
Avatar_n_tn Going in for surgery Nov17'08. The total hysterectomy, hernia and sling will be performed. I am very nervous after reviewing this site and the "horror" stories told. I have fibroids pressing against the badder, which is now, poorly distended, a overly large uterus ,as well as a hernia. I have a calcified kidney stone"which is being "guarded".
Avatar_n_tn In July last year I had a vaginal hysterectomy and anterior and posterior prolapse repair. Since then I have suffered urianry incontinence and 8 water infections. I am due to have TVT surgery next week but 2 wks ago I suffered severe abdominal and low back pain along with vomitting and fever. I was admitted to hospital and tested for kidney infections, diverticulitis with ultrasound scans and x-rays and then after a CT scan told I had infected ovaries and tubes.
Avatar_n_tn I can not find any information on ablation following classic csection except that FDA and manufacturers do not recommend it. Also concerned if ablation will solve problem. I have no qualms aboout a hysterectomy, the GYN is the one concerned since I have surgical history may be complicated removal.
Avatar_n_tn Hello, I was wondering if any of you all have been put on hormones after a total hysterectomy. My doctor says there are too many risks and I don't need them...I am 38. I don't know what to expect here 2 weeks after surgery, I keep waiting for a hotflash or something weird to happen. :) What can happen if I don't take them? I've had nightmares of growing hair on my face or my voice getting manly. Are my fears real? Can anyone share their experience or knowledge about hormones?
Avatar_n_tn What can I expect if I have a partial hysterectomy? What is the recovery time/time out of work? Can it be an outpatient procedure?

1573549_tn?1295895393 It will come on at random times and be happening a few times a week, then just go away completely. I have had a complete hysterectomy 4yrs ago, with a partial ovary being left because it had become attached to my colon. I have never heard of this before and wonder if this could also be causing some of my problems. I have been reading some posts that refer to adhesions after surgery. The hysterectomy was done in two parts and I am wondering if this could be my problem.
1260611_tn?1271245331 Having issues over the last year. How do you know what type hysterectomy is right for you and what to take out? I think I am heading closer to that decision in the coming year.What are the biggest complications post surgery besides infection. Incontinence??continued pain?How long does surgery take and how long in hospital?
Avatar_f_tn I had a hysterectomy removing the uterus, one ovary and my cervix on December 31st 2014. On January 14, 2015, I began to leak urine excessively. I went to my doctor and he said it wasn't urine and the I had ripped stitches causing fluids to leak. I was scheduled for surgery to repair the damages on January 15. I awoke to find that what was supposed to be an outpatient procedure had turned into a full abdominal surgery while I was knocked out.
Avatar_m_tn Can I reassure her that it is not major sugery? Will she be bed-ridden / chair bound for weeks/months? (She is a very active woman and not moving will be a major problem). What are the normal after effects that we can expect? There is also a small tear/scar (or something) on the vagina wall (which may be the cause of her wanting the loo very often). They are going to address that. Question: What is that all about? Sorry - I am so 'Naive'.
Avatar_f_tn I am 57 years old and had a robotic radical hysterectomy a week ago yesterday. I've only had a few pieces of toast and some broth since then (besides water) because I've not been hungry. I dislike food anyway so this is normal. The last thing I need is the carbs, but that's a different forum. My doctors say I cannot lose weight because my body is in starvation mode. Anyway, for the past few years I've been having a lot of bleeding. I was 15 years post menopause when it began.
Avatar_f_tn She said she doesn't want to do a hysterectomy if we don't have to and will wait and see how the pains are in July. If the colpo comes back still at CIN 2 or at CIN 3, since I can't have anymore children (wen have 2 beautiful children) should I just go ahead and have her do the hysterectomy? Wouldn't it be worth it if it got rid of not only the pains that my doctor can't figure out and the abnormal cells?
727109_tn?1231182036 Usually i sign onto a site, then dont go back. Hopefully this one i will stick to . Ok, so i go in for a TVH (Total Vaginal Hysterectomy) on Jan 8 2009 (3 days) and im pretty nervous. The last few days, my breasts and nipples have been incredibly sore. I know i am not pregnant, i had my tubes tied about 3 years ago. I also have pain on my right side, in my 'girl parts'. Im thinking..maybe this is nerves? i called the drs but i cant get in until next week. So i guess i will just ask the dr.
Avatar_m_tn Just for informational purposes though, Fiboids can be treated by hysterectomy (abdominal or vaginal)--hospital stay 1-3 days. OR they can be treated by uterine artery embolization which is an outpatient procedure. Make sure all the options are discussed with you--fibroids do NOT equal automatic hysterectomy. Good luck!
Avatar_n_tn That's probably what your doc was referring to when he mentioned a laser. It's a less invasive procedure than a hysterectomy.
Avatar_n_tn There are other reasons not to have a hysterectomy beyond not wanting any more children. These organs do play a part in your total health and you don't want to part with them unless necessary, especially at your age. I'm surprised you have to wait so long for your results. Usually it is only a few days. Do ask your doctor for something to help with the pain. You don't need to live with this.
Avatar_f_tn My breast lump was found during my MRI - my oncologist suggested a mastectomy and ALND, but due to me being only two weeks post surgery from my hysterectomy decided to put me on letrozole for 3 months to enable me to recover from my hysterectomy- I also suffered from pneumonia after my hysterectomy and was keep in hospital for several weeks.
Avatar_f_tn And I can't spend time with my son due to the severe pain I am in. Should I seek out a doctor who will do a hysterectomy? My insurance runs out Dec. 1st. I'm at the end of my rope.
Avatar_n_tn In 2003 I had a partial hysterectomy and was released a day later. However about 3 days after I started having pains and fever. My doctor started running, CT's and transvaginal ultrasounds and found that some fluid was left after the surgery and it had started a fluid collection and was causing a bad infection. This infection caused my hemoglobin to go down to 8.4 and the doctor wanted to put in a drain tube but the fluid went away.
Avatar_f_tn I have scheduled a laproscopic surgery later this month that could result in a hysterectomy. I have had a lot of pain in my pelvis (dull ache) as well as constipation, spotting ALL the time, tender breasts and fatigue. I am 35, have 2 children (I am done in that department, thankfully)! I have NEVER had any "female" problems. I have always had regular periods, got pregnant easily and had realtively easy labor/delivery..........so all of this kinda freaks me out.
Avatar_n_tn She just got the test results on Thursday. I'm getting worried. I assume that a hysterectomy is probably in my future. Am I correct? I know none of you are doctors, but just want your opinion or experience. Thank you so much.
Avatar_n_tn I had a vaginal ultrasound today that revealed placental polyps. My OBGYN has scheduled outpatient surgery for next week to remove the polyp(s). Can you tell me if they are uncommon/dangerous? What should I expect post-op? Thanks.
Avatar_n_tn I'll try to keep this short. After 4 months of GYN visits, tests, ultrasounds I was referred to a Urology Center. I have been self cathing for three weeks now. Symptoms: Crampy feeling, bloody show (hysterectomy & TVT Surgery+ 4 years ago), Hematuria, Retention. I recently had a Urodynamics study which was a total flop, I couldn't void at all after the tech filled my bladder to the max. Showed no pressure flow whatsoever. She cathed me and spoke with the Dr.
Avatar_n_tn 32, 2 scopes, 2 c-sections, hysterectomy in 2004 )adenomyosis), pelvic pain 8+ years, mild endo.
Avatar_n_tn This technique is most often employed for women who suffer from excessive or prolonged bleeding during their menstrual cycle but can not or do not wish to undergo a hysterectomy. The procedure is most commonly done on an outpatient basis. After the procedure, the endometrium heals by scarring, reducing or removing the possibility of future uterine bleeding. The patient will develop amenorrhea, however hormonal functioning will remain unaffected.
