Is 41 Too Young To Have A Hysterectomy
Unsure: There is no age that would be too young for a hysterectomy, depending on the indication for the hysterectomy. While 40 is still young, it is not too young for a hysterectomy if you have appropriate indications for surgery - see your doctor or get a second opinion if you already have seen your doctor and that was what you were told.
I think I'm too young to have a hysterectomy, but I have heavy bleeding and fibroids. What is the difference between a robotic laparoscopic myomectomy and a robotic hysterectomy?
Pregnancy?: This presentation is common in women with fibroids. Future pregnancy is a consideration which may lead to a recommendation for myomectomy where the fibroids are removed leaving the uterus intact. If pregnancy is not desired, the options include medical therapy, myomectomy or for definitive treatment, hysterectomy where the uterus is removed. Robotc surgery offers shorter recovery, less blood loss.See 9 more doctor answers
It doesn't: If you have a healthy sex drive before a hysterectomy, you should have a healthy sex drive afterwards. For some women it is even better, knowing they will not have pain due to endometriosis or fibroids, and they can't accidentally get pregnant. If, however, the ovaries are removed, changes in hormones including decreased testosterone can occur with possible decreased sex drive.See 1 more doctor answer

Hysterectomy (young age) experiencing rapid hair loss, lethargy, dr waited 3 months before estrogen replacement, still not regulated don't feel normal?
Keep trying Rx: Keep working with your MD to find the right type of estrogen replacement (ERT)for you and your body. ERT comes in many "flavors" from pills to vaginal products and implants. It might be up to 6 months for your hair loss to stop once you are on the right dosages of estrogen. Have your MD also check your thyroid gland function as well as low thyroid will also cause your symptoms.

Uterus removal: Total hysterectomy is removal of the uterus & cervix. Supracervical removal of the uterus. Increasingly the ovaries are left in place and for good reason as they continue to cycle producing female hormones. Preservation of normal ovaries results in an additional 7-8 years of life in women under 65. If tubes & ovaries are removed bilateral salpingoophorectomy is term added to hysterectomy.See 2 more doctor answers
Top part of uterus: A subtotal (or partial, supracervical) hysterectomy removes part of the uterus (the fundus or body) and leaves the cervix in place. A total (complete) hysterectomy is the removal of the whole uterus (body of the uterus as well as the cervix).The removal ovaries is a separate procedure (oophorectomy). Removing everything is a total hysterectomy and a bilateral salpingo (tubes)-oophorectomy.See 1 more doctor answer
Many reasons: A hysterectomy is needed for cancer of the uterus, ovary, or cervix. It is an important option for 1) large fibroids or ones causing heavy bleeding or pain, 2) endometriosis, especially if causing pain or ovarian cysts, 3) adenomyosis especially if causing pain or heavy bleeding, 4) prolapse of the uterus, or 5) treatment of pain and bleeding when conservative measures fail.
Varies: The post operative pain after a hysterectomy varies from woman to woman, but is almost always well controlled with medications. The route of the hysterectomy (abdominal, vaginal, laparoscopic, robotic, etc) will have an impact on the amount of pain - but again the pain medications work very well.See 1 more doctor answer
Less invasive: A single port hysterectomy means that the surgeon uses one small incision usually in the belly button to remove the uterus. Their is less pain and less visible scar than with other techniques. An experienced single port surgeon can do most hysterectomies using this technique. Most laparoscopic or robotic techniques use 3-4 small incisions on the abdomen.See 1 more doctor answer
Removal of uterus: This a surgical procedure under general anesthesia to remove the uterus. It can be done open, vaginally, laparoscopically, or with robotic assistance. It's usually done for bleeding abnormalities due to tumors or cancer, for prolapse, pain, or other abnormalities.See 2 more doctor answers
Unrelated: A hysterectomy removes the uterus (womb), which should not have any effect on appetite or metabolism. If ovaries were also removed in a pre-menopausal woman (salpingo-oopharectomy), many hormonal changes can affect appetite and metabolism. Talk to your surgeon to understand exactly what was & wasn't removed, and what long-term effects to expect, and how best to deal with them.See 1 more doctor answer
