CA 125 level in a 70yr woman who had hysterectomy with removal of ovaries+Fallopian tubes=341U/ml. Possibillity? Waiting for results of pelvic+abd u/s.

Waiting is hard: Although it's hard to wait, your doctor is evaluating you for possible abdominal or pelvic cancers which can show up even after removal of the uterus, tubes, and ovaries. They may also recommend a CT (cat scan) or PET scan If the u/s isn't helpful. Best wishes for good results! ...Read more

I had a full hysterectomy a little over 2yrs ago due to endometriosis. I have no Fallopian tubes, only ovaries. Is it normal to still feel cramps? I n

Ovaries and endometr: Despite your surgery, the main culprit of your endometriosis is still in place. It is likely that some, even microscopic areas, endometriosis were never removed. The hormones produced by your ovaries can result in the growth and further problems with endometriosis. Also, the ovaries will continue to cycle monthly and produce eggs and small cysts which can result in some cramping. ...Read more

I had a partial hysterectomy 9 years ago, I have one overy, one fallopian tube, and I had sex normally with my husband and started spotting light bloo?

Scar tissue: Post-coital bleeding after a hysterectomy can be due to granulation tissue AKA "proud flesh" at the vaginal cuff but this usually happens long before 9 years post-op. It can be due to scar tissue which is not as elastic as the normal vaginal tissue or because of an infection or chemical sensitivity that has left the vagina raw. An exam by your GYN or PCP will be needed to tell what is going on. ...Read more

Why remove Fallopian tubes with laparoscopic hysterectomy that's leaving my cervic ovaries from fibroids I have no other illness and no family history?

Tubal retention: The blood supply to the ovaries and the Fallopian tubes are closely linked but one organ can be surgically removed without the other being impacted. Leaving a cervix in place will still put you at risk for cervical cancer and pap smears will still be needed. Talk to your GYN surgeon and ask why the Fallopian tubes are being considered by him/her for removal at all if the ovaries will be left. ...Read more

I have fluid in my fallopian tubes is there any way to fix this so I can have a baby on my own?

Hydrosalpinx?: I assume you were told you have hydrosalpinx (water in the tube). This causes infertility, especially if its on both sides. Most reproductive endocrinologists recommend removing the tubes and undergoing ivf to achieve a pregnancy. In rare instances if the hydrosalpinx is mild, a doctor will try to repair the tube. Success rates with surgical repair are poor with a high risk of ectopic pregnanc. ...Read more

I have fluid (I guess a cyst) in the fallopian tube 9cmx13cm. I'm 44 and in moderate discomfort often. I have a history of endometriosis. Do I need surgery? Can this be cancer?

I have fluid (I guess a cyst) in the fallopian tube 9cmx13cm. I'm 44 and in moderate discomfort often. I have a history of endometriosis. Do I need surgery? Can this be cancer?

Hard to say: That sounds painful! This hydrosalpinx (swollen tube), while not necessarily dangerous, will not likely resolve on its own but will need removal which will tell us if it is truly nothing to worry about. Tubal cancers are very rare however we can never be certain until the tube is out. You have a LOT of structures in your pelvis and to make sure this is indeed a tube, your gyno's help is required! ...Read more

Can your fallopian tube heal if they was burned?

Can your fallopian tube heal if they was burned?

Can't heal: After coagulation (burning) the tubal segment is denatured - and its dead, so it can't truly heal. Sometimes tubal ligations done this way do fail because the 'burned' part develop a fistula (a hole) that leaves the tube open. This is not healing though, the tube is still abnormal. ...Read more
