What is Hysterectomy?

Hysterectomy is a surgical procedure of removing the uterus (womb) from a female body through an incision in the lower abdomen. The modern surgical procedure may involve removal of the cervix, ovaries, fallopian tubes and uterus as well. It can also be performed through an incision in the vagina which is called a vaginal hysterectomy or by a laparoscopic surgical approach which uses special equipment through small abdominal incisions. Getting a hysterectomy means that the ability to become pregnant for women is no longer there. If a woman wants to get pregnant, alternatives to this surgery can be discussed with an expert doctor but in certain conditions, a hysterectomy might be the only option.

Treatment

Diagnosis

An expert doctor will evaluate and diagnose whether the patient is physically fit for the surgery or not? That can be done by asking about the medical history, and other illnesses a patient may have. After that, they may ask for a pelvic examination, pap smear, and conduct a thorough diagnosis before proceeding with a hysterectomy. A patient may need to get the tests done to check for cancer. They may include:

  • Cervical cytology (Pap Smear test)- To help detect the presence of abnormal cervical cells
  • Endometrial biopsy- To help detect abnormal cells in the uterine lining
  • Pelvic ultrasound- To see the size of uterine fibroids, endometrial polyps or ovarian cysts

Surgery

After a diagnosis by an experienced surgeon, the patient accordingly proceeds with the operation. The advanced surgical procedure involves removal of the uterus through the abdomen by taking a very low bikini incision using the laparoscope. The daycare treatment involves fewer cuts or incisions, no scarring, no pain, and a faster recovery. There are two procedures for hysterectomy using modern procedures, the same are listed below:

  • Laparoscopic Hysterectomy- This procedure involves the incision with a laparoscope and vaginal incision, excision of cervical tissues transvaginally.
  • Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy- The entire operation is performed using a laparoscope and afterwards, a surgical specimen is removed via the vagina.

Abdominal Hysterectomy

During an abdominal hysterectomy, the surgeon removes the uterus of the patient by making a large cut in the abdomen. The incision made in the abdomen can be vertical or horizontal. Both the incisions heal well in a few days and leave behind scars from the surgery.

Vaginal Hysterectomy

During a vaginal hysterectomy, the surgeon removes the uterus b...

y making a small incision inside the vagina. This type of surgery will leave behind no scars after healing, as there are no external cuts on the body.

Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

During a laparoscopic hysterectomy, the surgeon will use a tiny instrument known as a “laparoscope”. A laparoscope is a thin, long tube with a high-intensity light and a camera on the front. The surgeon will make small incisions in the abdomen of the female. The laparoscope is inserted through incisions in the abdomen. There is no risk of scarring after the surgery in laparoscopic hysterectomy as 3 or 4 small incisions are made instead of one large one. Once the doctor can see the patient’s uterus via the camera on the laparoscope, the uterus is cut into small pieces and removed carefully, one piece at a time.

Complications

Hysterectomy is considered to be a safe procedure. However, being a major surgical procedure, there may be some risks associated with this surgery as well.

  • Adverse reaction to the anesthesia

  • Heavy bleeding

  • Infection around the incision

  • Injury to surrounding tissues or organs, including the bladder, intestines and blood vessels

These risks and complications involved with hysterectomy are rare. However, if the female observes any of the symptoms above, she may need a second surgery to treat them.

Recovery

  • In the hospital

  • After the hysterectomy, the patient may need to stay in the hospital for one night in case of laparoscopic hysterectomy and two to five days in case of vaginal or abdominal hysterectomy. During the hospital stay, the doctor will prescribe pain medication to the patient for the pain and monitor the vitals, including breathing and heart rate of the patient. The patient is also encouraged to walk as soon as she feels comfortable. Walking will help prevent formation of blood blood clots in the legs (which can happen if the patient avoids walking or minor physical movement after the surgery).

    If the female has had a vaginal hysterectomy, the vagina will be bandaged with gauze to control bleeding. The gauze will be removed by the doctor after a few days after the surgery. However, the female may have blood or brownish discharge from the vagina for about 10 days post surgery. The female is suggested to use a sanitary pad, tampon or menstrual cup to protect the clothes from getting stained.

  • At Home

  • After the discharge from hospital, it is important for the female to continue walking. The female is suggested to take small walks, which can even be inside the house or in the neighborhood. However, the female is advised to avoid certain activities during the recovery period. Such activities include:

  • Pushing and pulling heavy objects

  • Lifting heavy objects or any other activity that puts pressure over the abdomen area

  • Bending forward or backwards

  • Sexual intercourse

  • If the patient has undergone a vaginal or laparoscopic hysterectomy, she will probably be able to return to normal regular activities in about three to four weeks post surgery. However, the recovery time can vary, depending on the age, health and wellness of the patient. Recovery time is a little longer after an abdominal hysterectomy. The recovery time in about four to six weeks for abdominal hysterectomy.

Benefits of Hysterectomy

Undergoing a hysterectomy can improve the quality of life of the patient in many ways. For some females, hysterectomy puts an end to heavy menstrual bleeding and relieves abdominal or cervix pain. On the other hand, some females undergo this surgery to treat or prevent cancer. Have a word with your doctor about the ways a hysterectomy can improve your symptoms.

What to consider before having a Hysterectomy?

Undergoing a hysterectomy is a big decision for any female. To begin with, it is a major surgery and may remove the uterus of the female. This surgery can change the woman’s body forever. The woman may have an early menopause. As the uterus is removed in the surgery, the woman can never have children again. This is the reason that the treatment option of hysterectomy is only brought to the table after other treatment options fail to succeed. The patient undergoing or planning for hysterectomy should discuss about the below mentioned things with her doctor beforehand.

  • Would hysterectomy be suitable for me?

  • What are the benefits and side-effects of undergoing a hysterectomy for my case?

  • Do I have other options apart from hysterectomy?

  • What will happen if I do not undergo a hysterectomy?

  • How will hysterectomy relieve my symptoms?

  • Which type of hysterectomy do I need?

  • What are the chances of early menopause?

  • Will I have to take regular medications after the surgery?

  • Will I have behavioural or psychological changes?

If the female is suggested a hysterectomy as her last option but she still wants to have children, make sure to discuss this with the doctor. Adoption and surrogacy are two potential options for females in such cases.

Bottom Line

A hysterectomy is a procedure that can treat symptoms caused due to different medical conditions. For some females, this surgery is a life-saver! The female should always keep in mind that she will never be able to get pregnant after a hysterectomy. Hysterectomy can help relieve abnormal, heavy or irregular menstrual bleeding and pelvic pain. There are lots of major factors to consider before deciding to go for hysterectomy. Have a thorough conversation with your doctor before undergoing the procedure.
