Hysterectomy Due To Endometriosis
I am going to be having an abdominal total hysterectomy due to endometriosis. What can I expect as far as hospital stay and recovery?
2-4 days in hospital: If possible consider a second opinion. If in fact a hysterectomy is needed at this time, look to a minimally invasive procedure such as laparoscopic or robotic. The visualization is better, the ability to remove endometriosis implants improved, and with smaller, less painful scars you can often be discharge on the same day or the next day after surgery. Recovery is typically 6 weeks vs 1-2 weeks. ...Read more

Adhesions: Post-hysterectomy w. RUQ pain queries cause. Med literature reports common evolution of peritoneal adhesions following any/all abdominal/pelvic invasive/surgical procedures. In my experience, many post-invasive-procedure "endometriosis" patients have IBS-like symptoms. Endometriosis is a theoretical disorder lacking firm pathological proof &, in my opinion, is likely an iatrogenic disorder. ...Read more
Does a hysterectomy cure endometriosis? I have a lot of pain due to my endometriosis. If I have a hysterectomy, will the endometriosis be gone for good?
Yes, but less common: A hysterectomy is a surgery involving the removal of the uterus, not necessarily the ovaries.The ovaries produce the hormones that can drive growth/stimulation of endometriosis.
