About Hysterectomy

Hysterectomy is a medical term for uterus (womb) removal surgery. A hysterectomy may be done in case of severe symptoms that cannot be treated by other medicinal methods. Reasons a woman may have a hysterectomy are conditions related to uterine, endometrial tissue, and ovaries, to eliminate uterine fibroids, treat chronic pelvic pain, or heavy bleeding. Pristyn Care’s trusted gynecologists can perform laparoscopic hysterectomy that ensures painless surgery with minimal bleeding and only keyhole incisions that involve less scarring than an open hysterectomy.

Treatment

Diagnosis

The Doctor will assess if the patient is physically fit for the surgery or not. Uterus removal surgery is always a last resort, so the doctor always discusses every treatment option before advising for surgery. The doctor can ask about the medical history and other illnesses that a patient may have. Our gynecologists can recommend any of the following advanced diagnostic tests like a pelvic exam, blood and urine analysis, ultrasound imaging, and an endometrial biopsy to check for cancer.

Surgery

Laparoscopic hysterectomy is a surgical procedure for the removal of the uterus. In this technique, the uterus is separated from the inside of the body and removed in small pieces through small incisions or through the vagina. A hysterectomy is a major surgical procedure and has both psychological and physical consequences.

The procedure is done under general anesthesia which blocks pain and keeps you asleep through the surgery. A small incision is made just below your belly button. The abdomen is inflated with carbon dioxide gas and a fiber-optic instrument called a laparoscope is inserted to view the internal organs. Further small incisions may be made on your abdomen through which tiny surgical instruments are passed and the uterus is removed. Depending on the type of hysterectomy partial or total other reproductive organs will either be left intact or also removed with the uterus.

10 Things you should know about hysterectomy

  • You can still enjoy sex

While the surgery does have a lasting effect on your body for which you will need time to recover, this however does not mean that you cannot have sex or never experience sex similarly. You can have sex once your doctor approves that you have healed enough and sexual activity won’t cause any post-surgical complications.

  • Hysterectomy does not cure endometriosis

Endometriosis is a condition that is characterized by severe menstrual cramps, chronic pain, and painful intercourse, it is not cured by removal of the uterus, according to the Office on Women’s Health at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The many treatment options which include pain medications and hormone therapies, hysterectomy with removal of the ovaries is not a first-line treatment.

  • You would not necessarily go into menopause

The myth about hysterectomy is that a woman will go into menopause after going through the operation. It is true that you would not have periods, and can’t get pregnant after your uterus is removed but that doesn’t necessarily mean menopause. Unless your ovaries are removed in the surgery, women who have not experienced menopause before the surgery will likely undergo menstrual cycles without bleeding. However, hysterectomy can cause an early onset of menopause.

  • Hysterectomy can include removal of ovaries

If you had a radical hysterectomy, your ovaries may also be removed during the surgery. Ovaries are the source of female hormones estrogen and progesterone. These are critical for both sexual health and bone health. Loss of ovaries also means these hormones will no longer be produced by them due to their absence. This induces a condition known as surgical menopause. This sudden loss of female hormones can cause stronger symptoms of menopause, including hot flashes and loss of sex drive.

  • Hormone therapy for recovery

If you have a hysterectomy and oophorectomy( surgical removal of ovaries), then you should discuss the benefits and risks of estrogen therapy with your doctor. After the ovaries are removed, estrogen therapy can help alleviate the sudden onset and symptoms of menopause. However, oral hormone therapy carries increased risks of stroke, blood clots like deep vein thrombosis, and heart disease, it is important to have a thorough discussion with your gynecologist before a decision.

  • What if you can avoid hysterectomy

There are other procedures to treat fibroids like myomectomy, discuss with your doctor all possible treatments before deciding to get a hysterectomy. Make sure hysterectomy is the last resort to your condition.

  • Less-invasive surgery is possible

Laparoscopic and robotic-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy- this is a new and advanced type of surgery, it requires general anesthesia but only uses tiny incisions, causes less blood loss, and faster recovery than conservative open surgery.

  • The Morcellation technique can benefit but is equally risky

To be able to remove the uterus during minimally invasive surgery, surgeons cut the uterus into small sections and may use a process called morcellation. In the past, the practice was criticized because of evidence that it could potentially increase the risk of spreading cancerous cells.

  • Hysterectomy may prevent cancer

For women who have BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene defects, the risk of developing ovarian cancer is much higher, according to the National Cancer Institute. In some cases, after genetic testing, women with BRCA1 or BRCA2 choose to have preventive surgery. This removes both ovaries, called prophylactic oophorectomy, and can be done either alone or at the time of hysterectomy. Studies show having the surgery lowers the risk of dying from ovarian cancer by 80 percent.

  • Psychological healing can take time

Feeling a little low or having a sense of loss after hysterectomy is common. For some, the emotional trauma of hysterectomy may take much longer to heal than the physical effects. But be aware of postoperative depression, and get professional help if you are troubled with insomnia, loss of appetite, or hopeless feelings, after the surgery. It is important to look for support when needed.

How to recover at home after the surgery?

During the first few days, it is common to experience pain, bloating, vaginal bleeding, and vaginal discharge. Hysterectomy is major surgery and it is important to take care of yourself to recover quickly. Your doctor will advise you to:Rest and avoid lifting anything heavy for the first two weeks.

  • Ask your doctor when you can use tampons.
  • Ask your doctor about Kegel exercises.
  • Abstain for 6 weeks before resuming sexual activity.
  • If your cervix was not removed, you will still need regular Pap smears.
