Hysteroscopy Polypectomy Recovery
What's the question?: Yes it's possible to get a hematoma in a hysterectomy incision. If it's not enlarging, we usually leave it alone. It will "tamponade" itself off and stop growing, then slowly resorb. If it's enlarging, the incision would be opened and explored to tie off the bleeding vessel. ...Read more

There is some cramping that can be expected.If you are having bad cramps, pain or a foul discharge, these could be signs of an infection. Follow up with the surgeon who performed the procedure.They can and should tell you what to expect. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Alternative idea: Fibroids are tissue growth that affect the uterus. They are extremely common and present in up to 50% of women (i've seen as high as 70% quoted). They commonly cause abnormal bleeding and a hysteroscopic myomectomy is done to remove fibroids that protrude into the cavity of the uterus as an alternative to hysterecomty. It's done through the cervix with minimal anesthesia. A nice little surgery. ...Read more
Hysteroscopy: Hysteroscopy uses a small camera inserted through he vagina into the uterus to allow visualization of the lining. A scraping of the lining can then be done to remove it and any small lesions arising from it. A hysterectomy removes the uterus +/- ovaries and tubes. Sometimes a hysteroscopy can lead a physician to recommend hysterectomy. Talk to your GYN about what is best for you. ...Read more
Look vs take...: Hysteroscopy is a procedure that looks inside the uterus, without incisions. If a polyp is present, it can be removed with instruments placed thru the hysteroscope - short recovery. A hysterectomy is the removal of the uterus (containing the polyp) - with or without the removal of the ovaries thru incisions- longer recovery. ...Read more

Yes: Any hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) is considered a major surgery. With that said, there are several different modalities by which a uterus is removed.

Recovery time is typically shorter as well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
