Hysterectomy complications rate

Common Questions and Answers about Hysterectomy complications rate


Avatar f tn No, you cannot become pregnant without a uterus. The uterus nurishes the fertilized egg and helps to form the placenta, not to mention that it keeps the baby safe. The uterus is required for pregnancy so that the mother and the baby can be safe, and so that the child can be born healthy. There are such a thing as "ectopic pregnancy's", where the placenta attatches to the filopian tube or other organs, but these are extremely rare.
Avatar n tn Sorry to hear of your complications and the upcoming surgery. I had a hysterectomy in 2000 for (very early) ovarian cancer. I suffered from horrible adhesions afterwards and I understand you completely when you say that you have difficulty walking (I believe you did say that...I answer a lot of posts about adhesions, so forgive me if there is any confusion)...I had difficulty walking sometimes! I got incredible relief by doing a certain type of massage called "body rolling.
Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with level 2 proplapse. I am scheduled to have a hysterectomy and bladder repair surgery. My GYN preferres to do this surgery by himself. He uses a bladder tie up method because the sling or mesh repair of the bladder has proven to cause problems down the road-materials used eventually wear through that area. My question, has anyone had the bladder repair surgery that uses stitches to anchor the bladder?
Avatar n tn Partial hysterectomy: In a partial hysterectomy, the uterus is surgically removed but the cervix is left in place. Also called a subtotal hysterectomy. That is the definition of a partial, so if your uterus is not there how do you get pregnant? What exactly was removed? Noone can help without more info.
Avatar n tn Well I be damn, I'm not the only hysterectomy-notwannabe out there. I'm 38 and I had a hysterectomy in Oct.07 , I still have both ovaries,but I have gained about 15 lbs since the surgery, there has to be something out there for us.

Avatar f tn I am scheduled to have a vaginal hysterectomy and bladder sling surgery in the near future. I have two questions that are of concern to me. First, is it absolutely necessary to have a catheter after the bladder surgery? Any other options? I have heard nightmares about it and don't want to go through the agony if there is an option. Second, my doctor is planning to use pigskin to hold back the bladder.
84015 tn?1211464801 If the increased heart rate is documented on the holter it is easier to say what the likely cause is. If you heart rate just jumps from from one rate (say 70) to another (say 140), this likely represents an arrhythmia. If the increase is gradual or ramps up over the coarse of a minute or longer, this probably represents sinus tachycardia and would be characteristic for panic anxiety or inappropriate sinus tachycardia. The description you give is common for panic anxiety.
Avatar f tn Spend time researching any recommended procedure and ask your Urogynecologist about their success rates in that procedure and how many of these operations they do a week. You dont say how your prolapse is affecting you or what grade it is. Hopefully you have time to consider your options and get more comfortable about the choice you have made. Look at all your options. Good luck.
Avatar n tn rapid heart rate, severe headaches at the back of my neck & head, muscle cramping of calves, hands & feet. Now I am experiencing additional symptoms of chills, slight fever ( under 100), pelvic discomfort, continued uncle cramping, bad headaches as well as continued bleeding, all happening after sundown each day. Seeing surgeon, my ob gyn, Wednesday. What am I dealing with? Has the Pro Lift mesh caused an infection? Where does the bleeding come from?
19592380 tn?1480610212 I know that it can grow back and I've told my gynecologist that I want a full hysterectomy. Some of you are probably asking 'why', but I have a few reasons. Ever since I was a young child, I remember telling my parents that I never wanted children, and to this day I still do not. My fiance and I have talked seriously about this decision and both of our families know that children aren't for us. I struggle with mental illness and having children is something that never seemed good for me.
Avatar n tn I'm concerned about the success rate of a myomectomy and don't want to go through a surgical procedure and then end up having to have a hysterectomy in the long run. Naturally, I also don't want to have a hysterectomy and end up with complications and am really afraid of menopause. Any advise you might have would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn I originally posted this question on the hysterectomy forum, and it was suggested that I bring my question to this forum instead. Please note: I have not been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Here is my original Q: "I finally have a diagnosis regarding the extreme abdominal discomfort, back pain, pelivc pressure, nausea, etc., etc., I have been experiencing. I have several uterine fibroids, one of which is larger than a lemon, centrally located, and causing most of my symptoms.
1530342 tn?1405020090 More than 1 in 3 women undergo surgery to deliver their babies http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/43807114 Rates of Cesarean section deliveries in the United States climbed to 34 percent in 2009, hitting an all time high, a new study says.

603463 tn?1220630455 The pap smear was introduced in the 1960's in the United States, and since that time, the rate of cervical cancer has decreased dramatically. Last year in the US there were only 12710 new cases. Most new cases now are diagnosed in women who have not had recommended screening either because of lack of access or personal preference. At the time pap smears were introduced, the decision to perform them annually was completely arbitrary.
Avatar n tn Is there a chance that I would not need surgery for a few years if I stay on the Adalat? What is the mortality rate from this surgery. I'm so afraid of complications such as infection or blood clots and of dying. Please tell me something to put my mind at ease. It's so hard going from day to day with this fear. It's affecting my marriage and my job. Also, I have had to be on antibiotics about monthly for different procedures such as dental cleaning, cervical biopsy, colonscopy.

1380492 tn?1279132016 These pregnancies have been associated with complications such as disorders of abnormal placental adherence, hemorrhage, preterm delivery, and hysterectomy. Although rare, planned pregnancies following endometrial ablation have been reported, but most are unintended and quite complicated. A 49% termination rate has been reported for pregnancies conceived after endometrial ablation.
Avatar f tn Your body was wonderfully built to handle a vaginal birth. I think you should do a trial of labor. See how far you get, if you need and epidural get one and if no progression then opt for the c-section. My first was a c-section because (first of all, i got induced and then...) he went into distress and his heart rate started to fall dangerously low. But this time around with my baby girl, I'm gonna go for it and try my hardest to have a vaginal birth.
Avatar n tn For the past 3 1/2 years my wife has been suffering with frequent bowel movements w/stomach pains,fast heart rate and sweating. Everytime she eats or drinks anything 10-15 min later sometimes 25-30 min later she has a bowel movement and stays on the toilet for about an hour all the time. Her stool is usually very loose and the other day she had some white jelly or mucus like substance come out.During this time she has seen about 3 GI doctors and 2 bariatric doctors.
296076 tn?1371338074 Delivering a baby vaginally after a C-section is a “safe and appropriate choice” for most women, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists said Wednesday. The practice has been discouraged by many doctors and insurers in recent years. Under the new guidelines, women who have had two previous C-sections or are carrying twins are among those now considered appropriate candidates for a vaginal birth after Caesarean, or VBAC.
Avatar f tn Hi there are complications such as uterine rupture am i myself had an emergency c section an wanted a vbac but ended up with another c section cuz i wasnt going into labor. Im currently pregnant 17 weeks 3days with number 3. But i knw my aunt had 2 csections then a vbac so ita possible ive heard of lota of others to. Just look at the pros an cons and then decide which u would perfer.
Avatar f tn If my resting heart rate continues to rise at it's present rate I could be in serious trouble. The symptoms I currently get when active or stressed are: shortness of breath, increased heart rate, sensation of pressure across chest, discomfort/pressure in throat, pain in left armpit going down left arm. All these worsen if I try to keep moving, improve on resting. At their worst, they take a good 10 mins to clear. Occassionaly, I get pain in centre of my back where my bra strap does up.
Avatar f tn I normally quite fit and my heart rate sits around 50 beats a min at rest so with the metoprol it lowered my heart rate to much expecially while sleeping was getting into the early 30s when I was getting monitored in hospital. They don't seam to think the hysterectomy was related to why I have it but it is when it started. There is no family history with heart rythom problems and there isn't even any family history with my prolonged qt either but apparently it cab happen in rare cases.
Avatar f tn But the cervix can also become stenotic from the procedure, another cause of trapped blood / engorgement hence pelvic pain. The complications do not tend to happen in the short-term but instead a couple or few years down the road. You can research post ablation syndrome.
Avatar f tn (charity care), and they say I have this complex atypical endometrial hyperplasia. They are telling me I need a hysterectomy, but before I can get it I need a hysteroscopy first. Telling me it is pre-cancerous, but that 40-55% is usually cancerous. Was also diagnosed with HepC in 11/07, and the blood results were that it was so low it was undectable. Also had a liver biopsy in May 08, but did not get results back yet.Add high blood pressure and high cholesterol to that.
7923170 tn?1413003104 Good luck and I hope your baby does well coming early and you get through without complications. You are right to want to get a hysterectomy, as you get older your complications risk will increase and no baby growing parts means no baby any other way and you risk getting pregnant again.
Avatar f tn , there are no guarantees that complications won't happen. You just have to educate yourself on what those complications may be and how they're treated, and above all talk about it with your doctor. I am so sorry to hear about your friend. It's never easy to helplessly stand by and watch someone die, and cancer is terribly a cruel killer. I'm sure your friend is tremendously grateful to have your strength and support.
951587 tn?1249230748 I told him that I wanted a hysterectomy with all of the test findings, and the high cancer rate on my mom's side (I am 47). He said that no treatment was necessary for me.... so what the hell am I suppose to do now? Find yet another GYN? Just grin and bare the pain? Go back to my surgeon? Maybe the pain is just adhesions from all of my surgeries? I would think the latter, but with my test results I feel that I really should have a hysterectomy... I left the GYN's office in tears today...
