Partial hysterectomy what are precautions after surgery?

Partial hysterectomy what are precautions after surgery?

Depends: I depends on how the surgery was done. If you had a large incision on your abdomen then you should not be lifting more than 10-15 pounds for several weeks. If you had it done through the vagina or laparoscopically (small incisions) you don't have to worry about lifting restrictions. I also suggest that nothing go in the vagina for 6 weeks. Talk to your doctor about the specific details. ...Read more

Residual tissue: With a partial hysterectomy, there can be some glands left behind in the cervix that still function like a uterus. These are responsive to hormones and can bleed. This could also be a sign of cervical dysplasia (abnormal cells) or infection. I recommend that you see a gynecologist soon to have this evaluated as it can be serious and it is treatable. ...Read more

Is it my mom's appendix or something else? My mom just had surgery for a partial hysterectomy, and she's been having pains on her right side, the pain goes into her right leg and into her back. She also has some burning to on her right side too. The docto

There : There are several possibilities - either that these symptoms are related to the partial hysterectomy and may represent a complication, or that this is totally unrelated and a coincidental process. Assuming that your mother had no previous symptoms, then i would suggest that this is related somehow to her recent surgery. I was struck with your comment that her gynecologist mentioned that the appendix might have to be removed after surgery if there are any complications with it - did they see any problems with her appendix? If so, then it may well be some appendiceal pathology. Complications related to any abdominal surgery include: adhesions, infection and bleeding. If she has an elevated white count or fever, then this may reflect infection. Other pathologies may include gallbladder, pancreatitis, kidney stones, urinary tract infection, diverticulitis of the colon, infection of the colon related to antibiotics, such as c. Difficle colitis. You should have your mother seen by the surgeon that operated on her. She may need further testing such as an ultrasound or ct scan along with blood work. ...Read more

Gyn doctor only, what's partial hysterectomy? Does it mean that uterus is left/cut in half ? I have fibroids which needs surgery & want to my organ.

Misnomer: Most people assume a complete hysterectomy includes removing the ovaries with the uterus. However, a complete hysterectomy is simply the removal of the entire uterus. The ovaries are not part of the uterus and if they are to be removed they are listed separately as "removal of tubes and ovaries" or as "salpingo-oophorectomy" in addition the the comlete hysterectomy. ...Read more
