Hysterectomy Surgery

If you have uterine cancer, endometriosis, heavy or irregular periods you may need hysterectomy surgery. A hysterectomy is the surgical removal of your uterus.

Reasons for a hysterectomy

• Gynecologic cancer

• Fibroids

• Endometriosis

• Uterine prolapsed

• Persistent vaginal bleeding

• Chronic pelvic pain

A hysterectomy will end your ability to become pregnant. If you have cancer chances are a hysterectomy is your only option. But if you have another condition, and still want to have children, then there are other treatments that you should try first.

When you have the hysterectomy, your surgeon will detach your uterus from the blood vessels and connective tissue that support it, as well as from the vagina. The removal of your cervix, tubes and ovaries and additional tissue will depend on your specific situation.

Types of hysterectomy surgery

• Partial hysterectomy - removal of your uterus, while leaving your cervix intact.

• Total hysterectomy - removal of your uterus and cervix.

• Hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy - removal of your uterus, cervix, fallopian tubes and ovaries.

• Radical hysterectomy - is more extensive, requiring the removal of the upper portion of the vagina and some surrounding tissue and lymph nodes.

You will not be awake during any of these procedures, the all require a general anesthesia. Surgery will last between one to two hours. Your hysterectomy surgery can be performed through an incision in your abdomen or through your vagina depending on your specific situation. More than likely, you will be up and walking around the day after your surgery. It will take at least six weeks for you to start feeling like your old self again. If you're premenopausal, having your ovaries removed will initiate menopause. You cannot resume sexual activity until six weeks after your surgery.

As women we sometimes associate our uterus with our femininity and can feel a sense a loss. However, some women are so glad to be rid of their symptoms that they are excited and look forward to getting on with their lives. Just remember that no matter what reason you had for having hysterectomy surgery, then end result is exactly the same, you will no longer experience the symptoms that you had before and the procedure has greatly enhanced the quality of your life.
