Laser surgery hysterectomy

Common Questions and Answers about Laser surgery hysterectomy


Avatar f tn I want to recommend, crwstar, if you have any endometriosis, ask them to excise, not laser burn. I did this for my hysterectomy, but was burned when I didn't know it with the first laporotomy. I later learned that it is better to cut than to burn, because the body treats the burns like foreign bodies and more scarring can happen. Adhesions are no fun.
558156 tn?1217730996 I am having lapriscopic surgery on Monday. Im also trying to taper my pills. What can I expect from the surgery? Will they administer pain meds in the hospital? Im really scared...
Avatar n tn Hello, I am 47, no kids, kidney transplant recipient who has a grapefruit sized ovarian cyst sitting on my left ovary & squishing my bladder. Cyst appears benign and they also saw some endometriosis & fibriods. I have a history of abnormal pap smears, 2 LEEPs, laser surgery, cervical dysplasia... Met today with gyno/onc who is recommending removal of the cyst & ovary using DaVinci surgery, laparoscopy with possible hysterectomy (vaginal.
Avatar f tn I think I have decided against a Hysterectomy. Im only 32 and I am afraid of the results. However I have to have my left ovary removed for sure. I will also ask more about BC pills to help reduce the chances of more cysts and to possibly help get rid of the ones I have on my right ovary.
Avatar f tn Unknown Dr. Yong: Specialisation: GYN only Bowl/urinary tract surgery: Unknown The key for you is to find a good surgeon and as much as I hate to say this I would have that ovary removed. I totally understand why they kept it but the thing with Ovarian disease is that the cells are different than Endometriosis within the pelvic area.
Avatar n tn My doctors suggestion was a laproscoptic surgery to remove the cyst and I asked about a hysterectomy and he agreed to do as I wished. I had my utereus removed along with the cystic ovary and the fallapian tube on that side. Upon my wish the doctor left the other ovary and tube and cervix. I was informed by him later that because the cyst ended up being an endometrioma caused by endometriosis starting that I might later have the same trouble on the other ovary.
Avatar f tn I've had laser surgery done for the endometriosis a few years ago. Most of my symptoms now are related to the pcos. The symptoms are horrible. Excess hair growth on the face...balding on your head...weight gain in's really hard to look at myself in the mirror and see the old's taken over my life!
Avatar n tn I had a total hysterectomy in 2001 due to endo.I had hot flashes and other menapause symptoms for about a year.I did not take any HRT and they went away .I recently had to have a kidney removed do to tumor (non cancer)and the hot flashes are now back.Can this be from menapause,or side affect of surgery?How long can these symptoms last?
Avatar n tn I had a total hysterectomy in 2001. Last nite I spotted some blood and today I feel like I have menstrual cramps. I am seriously scared to death. The only thing that the doctor did not take was my appendix. Now, my normal doctor tells me he was supposed to have took that. I have adhesions on it and they were not able to pull them off. There is so many things that could cause vaginal bleeding that I dont even want to go get checked. It all scares me to death. I do have a doctors appt.
Avatar f tn Interesting enough they found a giant cell lesion on my bladder flap which is carbon residue from my first surgery when laser was used. However laser had to be used for that area because excision couldn't. So there are side effects of the laser and yes Endometriosis will grow back but if you excise it all out the chances are a lot less and will not come back as severe.
Avatar f tn In 2005 I found out I had adenomyosis (endometriosis within the uterine lining) and had a total hysterectomy. For my 2000 surgery, I was back at work 4 weeks later. For my 2005 surgery, I was back to work (reluctantly and still in pain) 8 weeks later. It all depends, but what I do know that sometimes doctors aren't always right. Keep the faith and good luck!
548526 tn?1301504260 The pain has continued to persist and over the last year and a half, worsened even more. In December I had a complete hysterectomy, in which they discovered more spots of endo, more ruptured cysts and even more adhesions. My tube and ovary were adhered to my colon in one spot as well. The surgery helped TREMENDOUSLY with the pelvic pain but that stabbing pain in my right side still remained.
Avatar f tn My OBGYN recommends laproscopic surgery. I am 32 years old and really want to get pregnant. Is the surgery necessary if I want to get pregnant? Also - fertility aside, is the surgery absolutely necessary?
Avatar n tn I tried to just have them clean it all out, but with the damage being so much, they said I would probley require another surgery, since it is in my uterus. Has anyone had this done and what can I expect. I tried the other site but that was no help. So I back here were some needed advice and prayers will come my way. Praying for everyone and keeping all of you in my thoughts.
Avatar n tn I hope you will consider this and do some research on statistics of ovarian cancer after hysterectomy. I have heard...that the vaginal hysterectomy is a much easier recovery. I have worked in Mother/baby for awhile so have not seen this procedure with my own eyes. I hope all goes well with you and make sure you see people washing thier hands!!!!!!
Avatar n tn We went first to our ob then we were referred to another ob for surgery and I made an appointment with another ob for the third opinion because surgery is not something you do lightly. I am still very nervous about my daughter having this surgery. Hope this helps you.
Avatar n tn I also have known adhesions following hysterectomy and postop infection. Over the past month, nausea has been really bad. Earlier this week I had a strange painful periumbilical pulsation, had CT which was ngt for aneurysm. Next day, abdominal pain was more generalized, and started having severe chest and mid back pain. Went to ER and had ngt cardiac workup. SGOT and SGPT were elevated. Gallbladder workup (ultrasound and HIDA with CCK) were ngt (78% ej. fr.
225036 tn?1294513000 Recovery from gallbladder surgery is pretty rough unless they do laser surgery. I think doing them one at a time will be easier on you. I am sure your family does not see you as a burden of any kind and I know they must be terribly concerned for you. I will pray that all goes really well with your surgery next week & that you don't have anymore painful attacks. .
Avatar n tn This is an extremely painful condition. But I really do wish you would get a second opinion. I'm wondering if you can have laser surgery to remove the endometrial tissue. Have you tried birth control pills? I know with some women this helps. This is your body and your paying this Dr. I would'nt let him put a time limit on the surgery. Can you call another Dr tomorrow to get a second opinion? Be up front and ask how many hysterectomies he/she has done and if you can get references.
Avatar m tn You would want to make sure they excise, and don't laser burn any endometriosis they see, because laser burning leads to more potential for excess scarring and adhesions, since the body views burned material as a foreign substance. I'm sorry you are suffering so much. Also, have they already tried PT with you to see if those low back muscles can be strengthened?
Avatar f tn I had to have the hysterectomy due to dysplasia and pre cancerous cells. After my surgery, I had to go in for several laser of the vaginal cuff surgeries, because the cancerous cells kept coming back. The dr. I have now is referring me to gyn oncology dr. What should I expect from this visit.
Avatar n tn From what I have read since, the rule of thumb is that if they are particularly troublesome they will do surgery on them and laser them away but that the process of removing them is a surgical procedure and can lead to a recurrence later on. Have to say could not have carried on long term with the pain and discomfort so surgery definitely best option for me.
723959 tn?1314747825 There was not anything that could really be done for my endo but when they did the lap procedure the doc was able to remove the cysts on my ovaries which eliminated some of the on going pain I had, I am sorry it is not a pleasant disease and unfortunately not a lot of options other than a hysterectomy . I hope you have a mild case and the docs can treat you via laprosopic surgery.
Avatar n tn 4 months later i went to a second surgeon that did the laser surgery for hemorroids, he did do the surgery , but left me with a deformed but and horrific one... just so my hemorroids would come back, wich i found out 6 years later that i had rectocele what caused my hemorrids to be cronic.. so I just had the Recotcele surgery 4 weeks ago and now I ask my other doctor to remove the skin tags...
Avatar f tn My last doctor wanted to do a complete hysterectomy but we decided to do laser surgery on my endometriosis about 4 years ago. I am 33 and have pretty much written off having any biological children but my question is...Will a hysterectomy be more harmful than helpful? Will the weight I gained in my mid-section from the pcos go away or will the hysterectomy cause more weight gain? From a pain point of view and the higher risk of cancer, I want to have the hysterectomy.
1262699 tn?1277858559 I had laparoscopic surgery to remove some endometriosis and i am on my fifth week now. The first two weeks were kind of rough, the third week pain at the incision sites was getting better, and by the fourth week i was walking 20-25 minutes each day. I was comfortable going up and down the stairs, and i did minor things around the house like washing dishes and doing my laundry and stuff. i felt i was getting better and then by the end of the fourth week my incision pain got worse all of a sudden.
Avatar n tn Discomfort from gas between shoulders, nothing bad just did not expect that. Waiting for the surgery was worse then the surgery...Best of luck to you!
Avatar n tn Yes - I'm curious what type of surgery you had too. I heard that having laser surgery is a lot easier to recover from than regular surgery. My main concern in doing that is because the gastro doctor said in my case it would be considered cosmetic surgery at this point (doctor code for "not covered by insurance", how much does surgery like that cost if you don't mind me asking.
Avatar n tn I had spinal fusion on my L5 5 weeks ago, and i am now hurting now more then i ever did before surgery. My Doc said he had the surgery and was back to work in 2 weeks. At 2weeks for me i was hurting so bad i thought i had messed up my fusion. So i went to see my my doc and had an xray and was told it was fine. He gave me a RX and said it was my last one. So i have had nothing for pain since 3 weeks after surgery.
