Hysterectomy - Tips to Help You Recover Fast!

Hysterectomy - Tips to Help You Recover Fast!

The surgical procedure that is used for uterus removal of a female patient is known as a hysterectomy. From uterine fibroids to cancer in the uterus, there may be a variety of reasons for carrying out this procedure. Here is everything you need to know about the procedure and recovery.

Causes: There are a number of reasons for which one may have to undergo a hysterectomy. If uterine fibroids and other kinds of growth are causing severe pelvic pain and bleeding, then it may be required. This also applied to particularly painful endometriosis. Abnormal vaginal bleeding as well as severe and chronic pelvic pain, are enough of reasons by themselves for going in for this kind of surgery to remove the uterus. Also, when the uterus slides away from its normal position and slips into the vaginal canal, this signifies a condition known as Uterine Prolapse, which will also require treatment in the form of a hysterectomy. Andenomyosis is another reason why this surgery may be required, as this condition results in the thickening of the organ. Finally, if the patient is suffering from cervical or ovarian cancer, then the doctor may recommend this surgery to remove the uterus in case the tumour found has been tested as malignant.

Technique: There are various techniques that may be followed in the course of this surgery, depending on the location, the size and the severity of the condition and the growth that is associated with it. 

  1. Open Surgery Hysterectomy: This involves an incision of six to seven inches, in the belly of the patient so as to act on the abdominal region. After recovery, there will be a visible scar on the stomach of the patient.
  2. MIP Hysterectomy: The various approaches for this technique include vaginal hysterectomy, laparoscopic hysterectomy, laparoscopic assisted vaginal hysterectomy, and robot assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy.

Risks: While this is mostly known as a low risk procedure, there may be various risks after the surgery including urinary incontinence, vaginal prolapse, formation of fistula where an abnormal link may form between the bladder and the vagina and finally, persistent pain. Infection, haemorrhage and blood clots may also happen in extreme cases.

Recovery: The female patient will automatically start menopause once this uterus removal procedure has been carried out. Usually, the doctor will ask you to refrain from lifting heavy weights for a few weeks after the surgery and also, to abstain from sex for a while. Most female patients reported complete cure of the problem following this surgery. Also, it is not common to find too many side effects after the surgery.

Tips

  1. Walking after a month. 
  2. Simple streching exercises after a month. 
  3. Plenty of fruits and vegetables in diet. 
  4. Water intake around 6 to 7 glasses. 
  5. Calcium supplements. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

Common causes of irregular periods: eating disorders, like anorexia and bulimia, excessive weight gain or weight loss; extreme thinness and obesity both cause your menstrual cycle to become irregular or even to disappear. Stress or emotional problems, hormonal problems, for example, when the thyroid malfunctions, travel, over-exercising: if you're an athlete and train very hard, you may stop menstruating because your body wants to survive and save energy and menstruation requires energy, problems with the pelvic organs (such as polycystic ovarian syndrome, for example) drugs like birth-control pills can affect the frequency and / or intensity of menstruation.

It seems you have occasional delayed menstrual periods. Normally periods should commence from 23-35th day of the last menstrual date. If you have irregular or delayed pds chances are you have hormone imbalance. Unless we take proper history ; do a thorough checkup and run certain tests we can't ascertain a diagnosis. However ipill intake can sometimes leads to bleeding after 2-7 days. That is not normal period scenario but its withdrawal bleed. You are advised not to overuse intake of ipill. It is an emergency contraceptive and is not to be used more than once in three months and sparingly.

It is difficult to comment or point out the reason for under development of brain of your child. However, you can plan for next baby after a gap of 1 to 2 years. It is suggested that you be in touch with doctor regularly once you conceive.

You need to get your urine test urgently as it appears you might be having urine infection as well as vaginal infection. And please visit a gynaecologist with the report. Plenty of fluid intake helps.
