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

Follow-up visit.: If a patient had surgery, the patient should make a follow-up visit with their surgeon so she or he can examine them and make sure everything is healing okay.

Is abdominal myomectomy an effective treatment for uterine fibroid tumors?

Is abdominal myomectomy an effective treatment for uterine fibroid tumors?

No: I would highly recommend removing them laparoscopically (minimally invasive approach). Although this method is more difficult to perform, for the patients, there will be great benefit (cosmetically small pleasing scars, 2 week recovery, less pain, quicker return to work). Please do your homework and find a skilled laparoscopic surgeon. The differences are night and day! ...Read more

Does cesarean stitch and ovarian cyst surgery stitch different?

Does cesarean stitch and ovarian cyst surgery stitch different?

depends: The type of incision can be the same in both c-section and ovary resection, the surgeon opens the skin along the bikini line and then opens the fascia from the umbilicus to the pubic bone. The same suture, usually absorbable can be used in both. The ovarian cyst surgery also can be done with a laprascopic approach, minimally invasive. Okay to ask your surgeon about these choices. Be well. ...Read more

Would never being pregnant determine the method of hysterectomy surgery for removal of uterus, tubes and ovary. Reason for surgery is thick lining.

I underwent myomectomy via lap before 3 weeks.What is the normal recovery time to get pregnant again?(2 myomas 3*3cm-submucous &intramural).

Unknown: I would have suspected your post op instructions to suggest delaying sex or pregnancy, at least through a couple of normal cycles after the surgery. No sex, no pregnancy, no worry. See your OB and figure it out. If the uterus was possibly weakened with the resections, that could be an issue with a pregnancy and weak wall! ...Read more
