About half of the women who had endometrial ablation will not have periods at all following the procedure. Get a 2nd opinion if you have questions ...Read more

Post-op fatigue: One of the common reasons for people to feel fatigued after surgery is due to anemia. Depending on how much blood was lost during the surgery, you can have symptoms of anemia for several weeks before your bone marrow replenishes what you've lost. Other causes of fatigue could be related to meds, anesthesia, or more serious issues like blood clots. See your primary care doc for eval. ...Read more

Not a bad idea: There is newer evidence that some ovarian cancers actually arise in the tubes so removal can be preventative for such.

I have had 2 abnormal paps. A follow up with a specialist revealed HSIL and moderate dysplasia. My understanding is that this is a pre cancerous condition and that I may have to have a hysterectomy. What is the best course of action and what does this d
Abnormal pap smears: The diagnosis of moderate dysplasia does not have to eventuate in a hysterectomy as it is not a cancerous condition yet. You DO need to follow up with the MD at least every 6 months to be sure that the dysplasia does not progress to actual cervical cancer. There are Rx options prior to hysterectomy if the dysplasia is caught before invasive cancer. Ask your MD about his/her follow up plans. ...Read more

Make it smaller.: Hello, Vaginal hysterectomy in the hands of a skilled surgeon, which obviously you had, gives you a great advantage in recovery time and risk of complications. He/She may have had assistance with a laparoscope so that he could see what was going on while performing the surgery. He/She may have chosen to cut the uterus in smaller pieces so that it could be delivered safely through the vagina. ...Read more
Is a hysterectomy after menopause the best answer for hormone therapy if you have uterine fibroids?
It depends: Most fibroids shrink in menopause, even if you are treated with low-dose hormone therapy. If, however, fibroids grow during menopause, that is a red flag for possible trouble. Hysterectomy will be your best bet to rule out the possibility of a cancerous growth, and to prevent further fibroid growth. Furthermore, you can then use estrogen alone which may be safer than estrogen plus progesterone. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
