Hysterectomy leaving cervix

Common Questions and Answers about Hysterectomy leaving cervix


Avatar n tn thought I should have a hysterectomy for long painful periods and paid during intercourse. They are only going to remove uterus, leaving ovaries and cervix. My husband already has a vasectomy, so we aren't planning on having anymore children. I am 31 years old and it is up to me if I want to have this done.
Avatar f tn How did you get your doctor to do a full hysterectomy? Mine blamed my age on leaving my overies but I don't want another dam surgery on my stomach.
Avatar n tn HI, The greatest concern of leaving the cervix behind after hysterectomy is stump cancer in the cervix that has been left behind. However the possibility of this is very less. Discuss with your Doctor. Hope this helps.
420771 tn?1234346201 I had a partial hysterectomy (uterus and cervix) in July and returned to the doctor 3 weeks later for recheck and complaint of green discharge, continuous since surgery. The doctor at that time told me this was normal and to return if it continued. 2 weeks later I returned because the amount of green discharge had increased, accompanied by a fever of 100 degrees and become worrisome. They ran blood work at the time and said my white count was 26,000, but was, again, nothing to worry about.
1809377 tn?1316523928 I am seeing my GYN tomorrow to make an apt to have a partial hysterectomy. I have seen a lot of the posts out there, but I would like to know what I can experiece post up... recovery time... discomforts... how long will it take for my body to get back to my new normal self, how long it will take for me to have sex again (it's been over 5 months)!!!
Avatar f tn I thought a partial hysterectomy was just my uterus, leaving the ovaries intact and just found out that my doctor took my cervix also. She never once told me that she was going to do that. She in fact, pushed to take the ovaries, but I told her no. Now I'm afraid I will never enjoy sex again because of my dryness and I feel cheated out of a decision that I thought I made with all the knowledge and research that I did do. I don't know how to handle this.
Avatar f tn He examined me and said that my rectum is herniated and I have a prolapsed bladder and the uterus is right there with it. The plan is to do a vaginal hysterectomy, taking the cervix and the uterus. Then, slinging up the bladder to where it should be and fixing the problem with the rectum. He is also a plastic surgeon specializing in that area. I am going to have a bit done to support everything. This will be done at the same time. I believe he said he was using the polyproplene mesh.
602473 tn?1235856758 I am 19 days from having my scheduled Hysterectomy. It is supposed to be Lap surgery with one surgeon & also with my GYN Oncologist to make the incision if he finds it needs to be done. I am having my uterus, tubes, & ovaries removed. The cervix will remain. The reason for this operation: I had irregular bleeding & after several trans vag ultrasounds & 10 days of Provera, my Uterus lining was still around 18mm.
Avatar n tn My doctor said they will remove my cervic and uterus. Then do the necessary repairs and replacing the uterus, leaving my cervix out. Will I still be able to have an orgasm?
Avatar m tn I think you should ask dr, for a colposcopy. I have not heard of leaving cervix for pap tests in a woman who is peri or pre menopausal. Cervix commonly left behind for purposes of recieving orgasms. I hope you feel well soon.
453069 tn?1208952107 My rt ovary had a cystadenoma described as the size of an 8 lb baby or a small watermelon and my lt ovary also had a much smaller cyst (about tangerine sized). Can you help me better understand the benfits of leaving my cervix and also what correlation does ovarian cysts have with diabetes or where I might learn more about this connection?
398893 tn?1201319307 I had a hysterectomy done in 2004 because of Endometriosis and they left one ovary in and I was wanting to know, Is it possible that the endometriosis could come back into my one ovary? I still have severe stomach and plevis pain at times with some Sharp shooting pains in the Pelvic area....Anyone have any info that might help me? Please.......
Avatar n tn I am unaware of the reason for your hysterectomy, but if you need to have it make sure that the doctor takes your cervix. I had a partial with my doctor leaving one ovary(the other had to come out) and he also left my cervix. Since my surgery(in Nov) I am still having a period every month. From all the info left by ladies on this forum I am under the impression that leaving my cervix with some of the uterus tissue on top of it is the reason why.
Avatar f tn I saw my obgyn today and was told in order to relieve my menstrual cramping the next step would be a laparoscopic hysterectomy. I had an oblation 2 years ago and it wasn't helping anymore. I was wondering if i will still get my period, he said he would be leaving my ovaries in.
Avatar n tn I had a hysterectomy leaving ovaries and cervix in feb and im too having similar problems. Disharge on and off, bleeding on and off, pain during intercourse, even bleeding sometimes after. It almost appears im having mini periods each month....had u/sound today and she only found 1 ovary, so i wonder what is going. I had a pap to test my cells last week, not heard back, im gonna call tomm.
351724 tn?1267540618 Yes...regardless ..they take everything out anyway your uterus, ovaries and cervix UNLESS yours is not a radical hysterectomy just partial that's different story. Sunes.
Avatar f tn He has suggested a partial hysterectomy to remove the uterus and then repair the bladder and rectal area. My concern is leaving the ovaries and fallopian tubes to futher increase the chances of ovarian cancer. I have also have had a history of abnormal pap smears.What do I need to be concerned about?
Avatar n tn According to the New England Journal of Medicine: "Complications of Subtotal Hysterectomy: Menstrual-like vaginal bleeding. After subtotal hysterectomy, about 7% of women have bothersome cyclic bleeding. This happens when uterus-like cells remain on the outside of the cervix after the uterus is removed." (A subtotal hysterectomy is when the body of the uterus but not the cervix, is removed).
Avatar f tn Well, it would seem that a hysterectomy is on the table for discussion, according to my provider. I used to think that I wouldn't care if they just cut the whole messy contraption out, but now that it's a serious consideration, I'm having second thoughts. My "condition" isn't even clear, so I'm trying to weigh my options and other thay a hysterectomy, perhaps an ablation sounds good. They're telling me that I'm young for an ablation, but not young for a hysterectomy?
489228 tn?1291535054 Shelly, I am also scheduled for a hysterectomy and bladder repair. Whether the ovaries are removed is totally up to me. My original thought was "remove it all" so I don't have to worry but after researching I'm thinking about leaving my ovaries. I was recently remarried and I'm concerned about the exact same thing and worried about weight gain and libido. I am however miserable 2 weeks out of the month with several large fibroids and have had 3 bouts of cervical precancer.
Avatar f tn About 18 years ago I had a hysterectomy because of Endometriosis. They removed uterus, cervix, left ovary and both fallopian tubes. All they left me was my right ovary. For a few years now I been having problems with a mass on my right ovary. It measures 5 x 6 cm. I have alot of pain, the even makes my right pelvis bone hurt, the pain goes into my groin and down the front of my leg. My groin also has a large lump in it.
7922729 tn?1395415825 On Jan. 24th, 2014 I had a hysterectomy. My uterus was removed, but they left my ovaries and cervix. Three days after surgery my bladder became paralyzed and I was unable to urinate on my own. The doctor inserted a foley catheter for 3 days to "let my bladder rest". Before leaving that day a urine culture was taken, which grew into Klebsiella. I was put on a round of A/B and meds to treat the symptoms.
Avatar n tn I've had 3 OB/GYN's who have suggested a partial hysterectomy (leaving the ovaries). They suspect fibroids as the cause because of an ultrasound I had. I am worried about uterine cancer as I have all the symptoms. If this was caused only from a fibroid would a hysterectomy be appropriate? Or could the bleeding stop eventually on its own if was just caused from a fibroid? I don't want to go through an unnecessary surgery, but I do want to know without a doubt if its cancer or not.
Avatar f tn Unless you have had serious problems with endometriosis, fibroids or other problems with the uterus or cervix, I don't think a doctor or you should think about adding hysterectomy to your procedure. The BSO (or just cyst removal with possibly one ovary/tube if it's damaged by that big cyst) should be enough unless there's more in your medical history that warrants a hysterectomy. It's not an easy decision.
Avatar n tn I am 42 and going tomorrow to book in for an hysterectomy, i have endo and have had numerous ops to remove this. On my last op 8 mnths ago they tld me i ca not have any more ops and i must have a hysterectomy and leave in my ovaries. I really do not know what to do, i have my mom, auntie and cousin who all have had one and 2 friends who have said it was the best thing they had (they had a total). I have been reading your posts and now im scared out of my brain with the does and donts.
1222892 tn?1312152424 this month I will try birth control I will see how I feel, but if my pain will continue I will have to have hysterectomy.....it scares me...............i have no children................i got diagnosed with endo only year and half ago................my surgery was in stage 3....now I am maybe 4.....
Avatar n tn Id advise you to get one more opinion and if second doctor agrees get the hysterectomy insist on laproscopic transvaginal one..sometimes they leave cervix for support so you wont have any prolapse this is an especiall good option if overweight as prolapse risk increases.....If both ovaries are healthy its gonna be your call to leave both or one,,,,removal of tubes and ovaries is called a BSO not hysterectomy...
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 i am 22 yrs old and going the 11th of april for a histerectomy (cervix, uterus, and tubes {leaving overies}) i am now very worried since i have read a lot of what you all have written in here. i am trying to lose weight and do not want to gain weight and certainly do not want to lose my sexual desire or my o's. i was just wondering if any of you out there have had these problems and have had the exact type of histerectomy as i am because maybe then i shouldn't go and get it done.
