How should I mentally prepare for a robot assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy?

How should I mentally prepare for a robot assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy?

Great Question: Understand why you are having the hysterectomy.

You need to be comfortable with the idea of a hysterectomy, of not having periods any more. Focus on the positive. Make sure you have taken care of details, like food in the house post op. ...Read more

Laprascopic ovarian cyst removal with ablation. I have a cruise scheduled 17 days post op. Am i crazy? Recovery time? Plane ride?!?

Fine: You'll be fine. You probably won't be on any pain meds at all, assuming no complications with your surgery. Most important, because you're 42, is just to make sure that you prevent any blood clot by moving around frequently. Get up, if you can, every hour or so on your plane ride for circulation. Check out exercises you can do with your legs while sitting on plane to prevent blood clot. ...Read more

Has anybody done a laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy?

Has anybody done a laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy?

Yes: The most common reason for leaving the cervix is patient request. Current medical evidence doesn't suggest any advantages to leaving the cervix, though sexual function or bladder function were concerns in the past. If the cervix is left, the uterus must be removed by morcellation which can be a tedious and time-consuming endeavor, especially with a large uterus. ...Read more

Bleeding(answer 1): First of all and probably most important is where exactly is the bleeding at? Next is for how long has the bleeding been taking place? Then, how much bleeding is there? If it is at the skin incisions, for just a day, and just spots of blood on your dressing, then I wouldn't worry too much. Just keep your routine follow up appointment. If it is from your vagina or skin incision, for just a day or ...Read more
