In brief: Hysterectomies

Hysterectomies are performed for many different reasons.
If a patient is having persistent pain, then first it must be determined where the pain is coming from: the intestines, the female organs, or even the bladder/kidney system. Sometimes patients have severe endometriosis or adenomyosis (abnormal tissue/bleeding from the uterus), have fibroids, or other uterine abnormalities. It is important that you are sure your pap smear is up to date, and that you have a complete evaluation. Let your doctor know if you are having abnormal bleeding or weight changes. If you develop increased pain, fever, or vomiting, then you must be seen as an emergency.
