Hysterectomy is the surgical procedure to remove the uterus. The uterus is the round, pear-shaped organ in a woman's pelvis, also called the womb.
What to expect about a Hysterectomy?
During the Hysterectomy, the whole uterus is usually removed, and may also the fallopian tubes and ovaries are removed.
Common reasons to need a Hysterectomy
Your doctor may recommend a Hysterectomy if you have:
- Uterine fibroids
- Heavy or unusual vaginal bleeding
- Uterine prolapse
- Chronic pelvic pain
- Cancer of the uterus, cervix, or ovaries
Hysterectomy for noncancerous reasons is normally considered after all other treatment options have been tried without success.
Benefits for a Hysterectomy
After weeks of recovery, the most significant change is a better quality of life, a release from the bad symptoms. Maybe some depression during the first week, but then you are going to feel great.
After a Hysterectomy, most women improve or cure their problems (for example, pain or heavy periods).
When should I call the doctor?
Call your OBGYN if after your Hysterectomy you have:
- Bright red vaginal bleeding
- Severe nausea or vomiting
- Difficulty urinating
- Increasing redness or drainage from incisions
