What is Hysterectomy?

About

It is a surgery carried out to remove a woman’s uterus. Hysterectomy can be performed through an abdominal or a vaginal incision. A partial hysterectomy removes only the uterus, while a complete hysterectomy removes the uterus and the cervix.

When is Hysterectomy recommended?

● Gynecological cancer: For cancer of the uterus or cervix, hysterectomy the best solution.
● Fibroids: Hysterectomy is also performed for benign uterine tumors, also known as fibroids that may cause persistent bleeding.
● Endometriosis: It is the condition, when tissue linings inside uterus grow outside.
● Uterine prolapse: When the pelvic floor muscles weaken, they are no longer able to support the uterus. This causes the uterus to slip down into the vagina.
● Abnormal vaginal bleeding pelvic pain.

Preparing for Hysterectomy:

A hysterectomy ends your ability to be pregnant. If you plan on achieving pregnancy, then you can consult your doctor regarding other non-invasive methods. You should take the following steps to prepare for the surgery:
1. Gather information: You should know about the procedure, the risks involved, and recovery options.
2. Discuss your medication: If you are on any kind of medication, it is best to talk to your doctor about it.
3. Discuss Anesthesia: The procedure will require general anesthesia.
4. Plan post-hysterectomy activities: Decide the duration of your hospital stay. Consult your doctor regarding post-surgical activities that may help in swift recovery.
5. A Pap test, endometrial biopsy, or pelvic ultrasound may be performed.

Understanding Hysterectomy results:
Hysterectomy changes some aspects of your life permanently. They are as follows:
● Post-hysterectomy you will not have menstrual periods.
● You will not get pregnant.
● You may get relief from the symptoms that led to a hysterectomy.
● Hysterectomy may trigger menopause.

The relief of symptoms greatly helps you to enhance the quality of your life. If you feel sad because of the loss of fertility, and it interferes with your daily life, consult your doctor.
