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

I had a robotic hysterectomy and sling surgery one week ago. Last two nights I have lower leg cramps  keeping me  from sleep?

Leg cramps: Any swelling of your legs? Is it in both legs or just one. The main concern is having a blood clot in your leg called a dvt, which can break off and go to your lungs, called a pe. I would go see your doctor and maybe get an ultrasound of your legs. ...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

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
