What Does A Hysterectomy Look Like
Having my 3rd leep in 10 years for recurring hsil cervical polyps (1st leep was for mild). Should i be concerned? Should i look into a hysterectomy?
Surgical Risk?: In general, hysterectomy is much more invasive and puts a patient at significantly greater risk than a leep. Further, hysterectomy should only be used when a leep is insufficient, i.e. Positive margins. I do understand the frustration/anxiety entailed by recurrent hsil though -- hysterectomy may be reasonable if your gyn can perform a lower risk procedure, like a laparoscopic or vaginal surgery. ...Read more

If your bleeding is heavier than this or if you are having a pain, fever, or foul smelling discharge; i would recommend seeing your doctor to get this looked at. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends what type: An open hyster takes the longest to recover with 8 weeks of disability, 1-3 days before you walk comfortably, & 6 weeks before you can resume full activities. Usually meds are given for the first week and then tapered off. Vaginal, total laparoscopic, lsc assisted, & robotic all have quicker recoveries, prob in reverse order. It depends on the complexity of the surgery & skill level of surgeon. ...Read more
Better than open: Laparoscopic hysterectomy is performed when vaginal hysterectomy may be very difficult and one wants to avoid a major open surgery. This typically rquires 3 or 4 small incisions in the abdomen. You may go home the same day or stay in the hospital overnight. Your recovery will be significantly faster comapred to abdominal route. Open abdomial hysterectomy is rarely necessary today. ...Read more
