How much more does the davinci robot hysterectomy cost compared to the regular one?

Costs you the same: Insurance companies reimburse the most for an open hysterectomy, from which you will need about six weeks to return to work. The reimbursement to the surgeon is the same for laparoscopic and robotic, both of which can often get you back to work in 2 weeks (still no sex for 8 weeks.) those of us who have put in the time to learn robotic surgery do it because it is the best thing for our patients. ...Read more

Lipoleimyoma. I just had a davinci hysterectomy because of one. I know they are rare. What will my doctor do with it?

Lipoleimyoma. I just had a davinci hysterectomy because of one. I know they are rare. What will my doctor do with it?

Lipoleimyoma: These are pretty rare, so i haven't seen much information on them. From what i gather, the ones that are asymptomatic require no treatment. If yours caused enough pain or bleeding that you needed a hysterectomy, then i assume there would be no further treatment because the lipoleimyoma is completely gone. But i'll defer to my surgical gyn colleagues to see if they have any more insight. ...Read more

Just had a partial hysterectomy with the davinci. When trying to sit up can a person get a hernia were one of the incision iis? Hurts more.

Yes: Yes, but pain at an incision site is normal. One site may hurtle than the others if that was the extraction site for the uterus, and they sdid extra suturing inside. A hernia is classically associated with a bump that you can push clack in to the abdomen. A hard bump you can't push in under the incision is normal for 6-8 weeks or so. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I had a davinci robotic hysterectomy 11 months ago & still have my ovaries. I have been experiencing some bleeding after intercourse. Is this normal?

Difficult to answer: Depends on your age, menopause, you hormone levels from your ovaries. Even without a uterus your body still reacts a same way to hormones which would involve lubrication. If this is less than before friction could cause minor cuts or microscopic lacerations that could explain a little bit of bleeding. LITTLE BIT, if its is significant then check with your GYN. Have in mind I am a Cardiologist ;) ...Read more
