Recovery After Cervical Cauterization
Hpv treatment: Some people who have changes in the cervix because of HPV will be offered what is called a loop electrical excision procedure, or LEEP, which is when a doctor will cut out a piece of the cervix and cauterize what is left in order to remove the area that can become cancer if not treated. ...Read more
My girlfriend is having intermittent moderate pain around the cervix two weeks after cervical erosion cauterisation. What may cause this?
That's not outside: Of what would be expected with normal healing, although it's often difficult to interpret where pain in the vagina/cervix/uterus is actually coming from. Nothing should have been inserted into the vagina up to this point. I think it would be safe to just watch and wait another week or so; contact her doctor if she is concerned in the meantime, especially if discharge or bleeding. Best wishes:) ...Read more

Depends on stage: The 5 year survival rates for cervical cancer depend on how advanced the disease is. Stage I (cancer only in cervix) is >90%, stage 2 (cancer spread just beyond cervix) is 60-80%, stage 3 (cancer spread to vagina or to pelvic wall) is 50%, stage 4 (cancer spread to bladder, rectum, elsewhere) is <30%. Regular pap smears result in early detection of cervical cancer and high chance for cure! ...Read more
Cervical fusion: Depend upon how many levels are being operated upon. Now a days a simple discectomy is rearly done and usually a bone fusion along with plate fixation is the common practice. One level fusion usaually allows the return to daliy activities in a short period of time 3to 4 weeks, however more extrenous activities such as sports require that the fusion be solid heal 4to 6 months. ...Read more
Depends: For a standard cervical discectomy and fusion for radiculopathy it's 8-12 weeks. You could return to work more quickly depending on what you do. The hospital stay is typically overnight, though some surgeons do the procedure outpatient. If someone is very myelopathic, then the recovery/rehab is longer. For an artificial disc the recovery time is shorter since no fusion is expected. ...Read more
Depends: If a fusion was done, it can take 12 weeks for enough bone healing to allow full activity. If the ruptured portion was removed without fusion, there is usually enough healing after one month. Symptoms in both cases usually improve well before this. However, severe long standing symptoms may take longer. ...Read more

Sacrocolpopexy and supra cervical hysterectomy. I'm 66 years old. What would be the typical course of recovery? I'm told robotic symptoms will last 4-5 hrs
It varies: For a one-level discectomy and fusion the operation typically lasts 1-2hours. I typically let my patients go home the same day of surgery. Recovery varies from patient to patient. I tell my patients no strenuous activity for first 2 weeks. We then start to ease them back into full activity so that they're back to normal activity by 6-8 weeks. See http://youtu. Be/oyk49lnvx78 for a video. ...Read more
I had a super cervical hysdirectmy 1.5 yrs ago and just had a trachelectmy done. What is the recovery time for vaginal/belly button?
6 weeks: The post surgical healing time for most tissues to regain normal integrity and strength is 6 weeks. Prior to this excessive stress to the incisional sights could cause them to open or weaken resulting in a hernia formation. Therefore, it is best not to stress these areas with sexual activity or heavy lifting and exercise for 6 weeks. Normal light activities, walking etc would be fine. ...Read more

My wife had a miscarriage. As a result of further cauterisation her uterus got 3 times bigger. What is the best way for recovery back to normal?
Need more info: When women have miscarriages, they often have d&cs afterward. Cauterization implies heat... Like an endometrial ablation (something your wife is too young for). An enlarged uterus without fibroids is typically adenomyosis (similar to endometriosis). The best treatment for adenomyosis is hormone management with birth control pills, or shots. Definitely speak to a doctor if you or she is worried. ...Read more
I just had a cervial discectomy and fusion at C5 C6 recovery has been minimal how long before I can schedule a breast lift?
Ask neck surgeon: Your neck surgeon has the definitive answer based on your actual surgery, as well as how your healing has progressed. An elective cosmetic surgery should not be undertaken when there is any risk to your neck; your neck will likely need to be hyperextended for anesthesia, and unless fully and durably healed (x-ray?), this could be a major risk. Talk frankly with your neck surgeon about your plan! ...Read more
