What is the difference between hysteroscopy and polypectomy?

Hysteroscopy: Hysteroscopy is to introduce a thin scope into uterus through the vagina and cervix, so we can see the polyp in the cavity of the uterus. We then use a loop through the hysteroscope to shave off and retrieve the polyp.

Post op bldg.: Hysteroscopy with a "D&C and polypectomy" can result in mild or even moderate bleeding while the lining of the womb is healing. This should not continue. If you have additional episodes of bleeding, see your healthcare provider who performed the surgery.

Had hysteroscopy/polypectomy/d&c 1st period started &stopped at 3 days, started again on day 5 heavy, stopped &started again day 7 heavy. Is it normal?

Monitor: The first cycle after hysteroscopic surgery can sometimes be a little off. It will be important to monitor you cycles over the next few months to see how they are. Also schedule a post op follow up visit to go over the pathology report from your recent surgery.

Incontinence: You need to see your surgeon or your doctor on an urgent basis. This might indicate that the urine is leaking through your genital tract. This might happen as a result of excessive damage of the lining of the genital tract secondary to the procedure/ operation.

Can I opt NOT to get the D&C in combo with a hysteroscopy/polypectomy and just have the two without a d&c as I don't want my uterine lining scrape?

Confirm with doctor: The surgical plan will depend on why the doctor is doing the surgery in the first place. It you have a simple polyp then a D and C is usually not done. If the doctor feels that tissue sampling is needed for whatever medical problem you have prompting the surgery then a D and C may be warranted. Each surgery must be individualized.

1st period, 3 weeks post hysteroscopy/dc/polypectomy confirmed by bbt. It is watery light pink fluid, like a very light flow. Is it ashermans? Or norm

1st period, 3 weeks post hysteroscopy/dc/polypectomy confirmed by bbt. It is watery light pink fluid, like a very light flow. Is it ashermans? Or norm

Too early to tell: At this point the is type of bleeding is probably menses. Periods will need to be observed to see if they return to a relatively normal pattern. If a polyp was removed they may remain somewhat lighter due to its removal.

What was pathology?: Did the pathology reveal a polyp? Why did you have a follow up ultrasound, do not believe this is routine practice. Monitor your symptoms, if you notice abnormal uterine bleeding, perhaps it needs to be evaluated.

UTERINE POLYPS: THIS QUESTION IS BETTER POSED AND ANSWERED BY YOUR GYN SPECIALIST THAT HAS BEEN TREATING YOU FOR THIS PROBLEM IN THE RECENT PAST. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU STAY ON THIS PROBLEM UNTIL IT IS CONTROLLED AND ELIMINATED. IF THIS PROBLEM BECOMES RECURRENT, DISCUSS OTHER OPTIONS, INCLUDING HYSTERECTOMY WITH YOUR GYN SPECIALIST.

Is endometrial cancer slow to develop had d&c hysteroscopy polypectomy 5mths ago path no signs of anything now new polyp gonna remove chance cancer?

Is endometrial cancer slow to develop had d&c hysteroscopy polypectomy 5mths ago path no signs of anything now new polyp gonna remove chance cancer?

Odds: The odds of having a cancerous growth within a polyp is fairly small. Risk factors such as not having any kids, history of irregular periods, advanced age, obesity can increase your chances of having uterine malignancy. However, as a whole the odds are still small. If a negative biopsy has been done in the past, you can be reasonably assured for now. They may sample your lining again in the future

Had hysteroscopy polypectomy 3mos ago now periods start w/clear pink flow for 1 day then red flow for 3 days & spotting for 1 day scarring? Or normal?

Probably yes: It is probably normal, but cervical polyps can recur and some are known to be cancerous. If you notice a change in the variation of your menstrual flow or bleeding in between your cycles contact your MD to be re-examined.

Had hysteroscopy/d&c/polypectomy 1.5 mos ago. Had uterine ultrasound & the polyp looks to be there again. Is it possible it grew back or was it missed?

Could be both: Endometrial polyps are notorious for returning to the "scene of the crime". Most MD's who perform hysteroscopy are very thorough but we are also human and can miss a non visualized polyp.
