What's the difference between hysterectomy and iud.  Which is the best benefits from?

Very Different: An iud is used to prevent pregnancy and/or lighten periods (specifically the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud). A hysterectomy removes the uterus and prevents any future pregnancies as well as any future periods. A hysterectomy is not used for birth control, whereas that is the primary purpose of the iud. One should be completely sure they are done childbearing before getting a hysterectomy. ...Read more

I have just been diagnosed with post ablation syndrome, I understand what it is but want to make sure hysterectomy is the best option. ?

Bleeding: Hysterectomy is usually to control bleeding : some women (6%-25%) have reported heavy bleeding that was unchanged at one year following the procedure. These women may require further surgery (re-ablation or hysterectomy) to control the bleeding. 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

Why does it take so long to recover from a complete hysterectomy? I go out and do errands then crash cause i get tired and wore out can u tell me why

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

I am haveing laparoscopic hysterectomy that removes only the uterus leaves the cervix in the ovaries he suggested I get my tubes taken out just in cas?

Not a bad idea: There is newer evidence that some ovarian cancers actually arise in the tubes so removal can be preventative for such. Also, this does not add significant risk nor does it add to your recovery. Thus, most suggest removal of fallopian tubes at the time hysterectomy is performed. ...Read more

Have a cut on a hysterectomy scar that goes across my belly. There is a small fold of fat that keeps air out. Whats best to heal it.

Clean and protected: Cuts in this area should heal quickly with local wound care. Keeping the area clean (soap and water) and moist (topical antibiotic ointment) and covered should do it. If not, there maybe a problem. Non healing wounds should be checked by a doctor to prevent further injury. ...Read more

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?

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 more
