What if it is an asthmatic patient with adenomyosis, then how to do the surgery?

Same Way: Asthma is common. It is rare that that poses any significant risk for surgery. In patients with very bad asthma, precautions are taken by the anesthesiologist or with peri-operative steroids to prevent any problems. Pretty common. ...Read more

I have severe adenomyosis after my baby. Awaiting surgery. I have a severe pulling sensation in my lower right abdomen, is this related?

I have severe adenomyosis after my baby. Awaiting surgery. I have a severe pulling sensation in my lower right abdomen, is this related?

Likely...: But this can also represent other pelvic pathology including endometriosis and-or pelvic adhesions. Have your surgeon comprehensively evaluate your pelvic cavity at the time of surgery and not assume it is adenomyosis (endometriosis of the uterine muscle) as this really can only be diagnosed at the time of a hysterectomy. ...Read more

Is there any chance of recover from adenomyosis without going through surgery?

Is there any chance of recover from adenomyosis without going through surgery?

Recovery? no: Adenomyosis is actually quite common and does not necessarily require treatment. In some cases it is thought to be a cause of painful periods (dysmenorrhea) although there is debate as to the correctness of that assumption. Frequently, women can use hormonal manipulation of their cycles to decrease symptoms which could be related to adenomyosis. Unfortunately medications are temporary treatment. ...Read more

What is the treatment for adenomyosis, heterogeneous, and fibroids? My gyno put me on necon 1/32 last yr after surgery but obviously that's not working

What is the treatment for adenomyosis, heterogeneous, and fibroids? My gyno put me on necon 1/32 last yr after surgery but obviously that's not working

Try embolization: There are many options for fibroids, but relatively few for adenomyosis. If hormonal therapies don't work the choices are limited. Hysterectomy is curative, but difficult to consider in a young woman. There is emerging evidence that embolization can provide good results for adenomyosis as well as fibroids and allow uterine preservation and at least a chance of fertility. ...Read more

Had surgery to remove hrt monitor. Have an area where there are still stitches poking out. Pus and blood coming out of that whole. What could it be?

Had surgery to remove hrt monitor. Have an area where there are still stitches poking out. Pus and blood coming out of that whole. What could it be?

Could be infection: I always tell my patients to return to see me if they see anything unusual at the surgical site (unusual discharge - pus, green or thick yellow discharge, redness, increased pain or increased warmth). Those are all signs of infection, and it is best to be safe than sorry if you think there may be an infection there. If the stitch is infected it may need to be removed, however that is up to your Dr ...Read more

My gyn saz i hav endometrial mass. He monitoring. No surgery scheduled yet. Is this bad?

My gyn saz i hav endometrial mass. He  monitoring. No surgery scheduled yet. 
Is this bad?

Not necessarily: This could be a polyp or a fibroid both of which are entirely benign. Depending on your symptoms and health history, you may end up just observing it, having an endometrial biopsy, or undergoing hysteroscopy in which case your doctor will look into your uterus with a scope and may do a biopsy or remove the mass. Hope this helps and you are having a great Christmas Day. ...Read more
