During a routine examination, I received an ultrasound scan and found a polyp. Immediately sent for hysteroscopy, during which this polyp was removed. Tissues were sent for histology, the results of which I could not get for a very long time. But when I got it, I was upset - I found signs of cancer cells or something, I don’t remember exactly.
The result - began to prepare for the removal of the uterus, life after that began to seem over. But I had to start training - to undergo examinations and pass numerous tests. All this took three months, after which I finally ended up in the hospital. I felt somehow morally easier when I saw filled wards and even more than a hundred women with the same problem.
How was the recovery
The operation lasted about an hour. The first day you can not get up, but there is no strength for it. On the second day you need to get up, despite the pain and weakness. It is important to walk so that everything heals faster and there are no blood clots and adhesions. On the legs must be a compression knit. All two weeks in the hospital, we did not remove it.
The first day you can not eat. On the first day you can only vegetable broth without salt. Next, give the most simple and easy food. But the food is enough, there is no feeling of hunger. Only now I want to drink more than usual. Daily injections, some put droppers. But this is all the work of a doctor, the patient’s task is only to live in a given mode and listen to the medical staff.
Of course, in the first few days the stomach hurts a lot. It hurts to get up, sit down and lie down. It hurts to sit and walk. It is very painful to laugh and cough. And I really want to cough after anesthesia. Help out painkillers. In no case can not take medicines and even cough drops, they provoke coughing. You can only lozenges, soothing throat, or stop a cough with water.
I had a cervix removed, so there was no discharge from the first day. Ovaries due to age and lack of formations in them are left. At first it seemed that they were twitching, but the doctor was afraid, noting that it was most likely an intestine.
First year after uterus removal
I was discharged exactly two weeks later. I felt fine, the pains decreased, but it was still sick to get up. The first two months after surgery to remove the uterus to walk in a bandage. But be sure to walk at least an hour a day. I did it with pleasure every day.
For the first three months I was very careful about my health - I didn’t lift weights, I was eating right, so that my stomach wouldn’t swell, I refused to perform marital duties. However, I was disturbed by some discharge that did not pass.
Doctors for a long time could not understand what it was, because the tests did not show anything. And only one doctor determined that they come from the urethra. It turned out that the bladder was inflamed. After treatment, everything went away. Two months later, she went to the control examination and ultrasound. They said that everything is fine, they allowed to live with her husband. But I allowed myself this only after another month. There was no pain.
In my review, I want to say that in the first six months my life after the removal of the uterus and cervix did not change much, unless monthly periods stopped. However, six months later, the stomach began to hurt, an ultrasound scan was done, and a cyst was found. We decided to watch. Resolved after three months.
Now (two years have passed) everything seems to be normal, but cysts periodically appear, although women already have them, but not everyone does an ultrasound. The lower abdomen often hurts, but doctors say that this is a problem with the intestines.
Hormonal failures are not any. Immediately after surgery, I lost 4 kg, but then my weight returned. I tend to be fat all my life. I do not observe any changes in this direction.
I live a normal life, I work, I am not sick more often than others. Signs of menopause do not notice. Wrinkles are not added, the hair on the spot, new in the wrong places also do not grow.
In this review, I want to note that my life after the removal of the uterus and cervix is not particularly different from the past. But I began to monitor health more closely and to undergo examinations, so I notice all the changes.
Doctors advise not to talk about the operation to her husband, but I immediately told him. Relationships have not changed. But it all depends on the man, come from the degree of trust between you.
Women, if you have an operation, do not pull and do not be afraid. Especially if cancer is suspected! We even had grandmothers for 70 and even 80! Like us, they went through everything and began to live on. My neighbors in the ward with cancer after the operation have undergone chemotherapy and now they feel as good as me, they work and enjoy life.
The story of Galina Sergeevna
I am now 67 years old, and the operation after the removal of the uterus and ovaries occurred in my life at 62 years old. The reason - an ovarian cyst, which should not be after menopause. During the hysteroscopy, my cervix did not open, so I could not get an analysis for cancer cells. The doctor decided to remove everything so that nothing else grew and not to re-operate after a few years.
She was very afraid of the operation, as her health was already naughty - pressure, problems with the thyroid, dilated veins. But there was no choice. They did it under spinal anesthesia and some kind of light general anesthesia, such as sleep. From the general refused, because hypertensive.
I had a climax when I was 42 years old, so there could be no new hormonal changes. Restored after surgery about two months. The first month went only in the yard. Then somehow everything was forgotten.
My life after the operation of the uterus and ovaries changed only in that it became difficult to endure “to the toilet”. As soon as she wanted, you need to go right away, at least in a small, at least in a big way. My chronic diseases remained, but they had nothing in common with the uterus. A year later went to the control examination. He said that everything is fine, forget and live.
Feedback Olga Ivanovna
My path to the removal of the uterus began with fibroids. I raised her more than 10 years, from thirty to forty. In recent years, new formations have appeared, and the doctor announced the verdict: to remove together with the uterus, since the fibroids inside the walls are very difficult to remove while preserving the organ. I agreed, because I was already exhausted by constant bleeding. It was impossible to leave the house on critical days. Even on remote work passed.
Operation and early days
For the operation they prepared for half a year, then the tests were bad (infections), then the histology was waiting for hysteroscopy, then the New Year holidays. On the table hit in early February. There was no fear, I wanted to quickly get rid of the problem and prolonged preparation.
Removed the uterus with the cervix, the ovaries left. The first day I slept under the influence of drugs. His stomach hurt terribly, but the shots quickly relieved the pain, making it quite tolerable. On the second day, you had to get up. It is very difficult, as the stomach is deformed and badly hurt. She got up with difficulty, but gradually began to walk.
It hurt to get up and sit down for another ten days, then somehow it became easier. Walking hurts the first four days, then fine. The bandage on the stomach must be worn constantly, it helps, it does not hurt so much. While I was in the hospital, I read reviews about life after the removal of the uterus with the neck from other women. Some frightened, while others inspired.
Discharged after 15 days. Already felt fine. She came home and began daily walks of one and a half to two hours. In the bandage nothing hurt anymore. But in no case constipation should not be allowed, even just a hard stool - the stomach is torn from pain. Indeed, during the operation, the guts are disturbed and the seam hurts when stretching.
Two months later, I began to like life without a womb. The pain passed, the bandage was removed, the abdomen decreased after removal of the tumors. I finally realized how cool to live without bleeding and frequent visits to the toilet! She passed the examination, passed the tests, everything was restored, including hemoglobin, which was previously lowered.
Three months later, I began to live a full life with a man and was even more delighted: the pain that had occurred during this before was gone! The man did not say anything about his operation and he did not notice anything! Previously, before the critical days, the stomach was severely ill - the uterus and in the ovarian area. It also went away.
Long-term health problems
The first six months of life after the removal of the uterus flew quickly, and then my joys ended. After the closeness, blood droplets suddenly appeared. Very scared, immediately went to the doctor. There was a day off and only reception room worked. The doctor did not see anything, said that perhaps there was an injury. By evening, the daub stopped. But after that there was a fear of intimacy, and I excluded it.
Everything was fine, but after a few months I went for a routine inspection and an ultrasound scan. Droplets of blood appeared again. And ultrasound found a cyst. My mood has fallen. The doctor did not find anything, reduced to the fact that weak vessels. Kistu said to watch.
Two months later, she did an ultrasound again, the cyst was in place, and the bleeding was disturbed again. I was lucky that the doctor went on vacation, and she was replaced by another. She saw granulosis on the seam, the so-called “wild meat”. Removed this growth by a radiohair. Kistu left for another 2 months.
I went to the ultrasound through 3.5. Flew out of the office on the wings! All resolved! Do not bleed. But from the sex life, I still refused so far. Recently I was on medical examination, the doctor said that everything is clean. I’ll never go to my doctor.
Because of the side effects of the long-term period (after about a year), it became difficult to restrain urination. Wanted - run! Again, as before, I go with a reserve and do not drink water on the road. This problem is particularly relevant in the morning.
The scar is visible after 2.5 years, although it did a cosmetic stitch. But I'm not particularly worried about this.
As for the attraction to the man, the first year it persisted, and then somehow began to fade. But maybe because I am divorced and do not start new novels.
Of course, the life of a woman after the removal of the uterus is changing, but this is not a reason to refuse the operation if it is necessary. Before that, the quality of my life was much worse, and all these little things are given to me much easier.
All reviews and characters are real and voluntarily provided information about themselves, but we will not name real names for ethical reasons.
Good afternoon, I am 34. During pregnancy, the placenta was found to have grown into the uterus. Sprouted through and grew into my organs bladder, intestines). Sent by quota in the PC. 5 days was in reanimation, half the time in IVL, 2 operations. The uterus was removed, the ovaries left. Although I didn't plan for more children, it is very hard psychologically. Almost a year has passed, but it is still crazy to realize that in fact we were very lucky in the end. It was scary
I was removed six months ago on May 30, 2018, a 6-by-7-cm cyst, I feel a little weak, I get tired faster, there were no mental abnormalities (depression or panic attacks), it only hurts my right groin, as if ovarian inflammation (and his no), the doctor prescribed longidase, it became better, I do Kegel exercises, I’m afraid to start sex (married), I didn’t say it to my husband, I went to the pool for the first time, everything is fine, But the bottom right side of my groin got sick again, what did it have? Anyone? I am very tuned to good- communicated with many elderly ladies -79.80 years old, who had undergone surgery in 50 years, back in Soviet times, everything looks great. Work.
damned endometriosis fucked up the whole life of the uterus no ovaries and no pain left the second operation did not help how it was treated help live I want tired of pain and hormones helped fool the doctor listened
Good day. I underwent such an operation (removal of the uterus, cervix, tube, one ovary) 2.5 months ago. Already passed after the operating period. Feeling good. If we compare it with what it was, then I would say good !. For several years, she suffered because of the reality of multiple myomas, endometriosis, cysts, and everything else, life seemed to be ADOm. There were bleeding, the abdomen was enlarged, and you can't even draw him in yourself ... I felt like I was always pregnant. She suffered from tides since she was 38 years old (now 47), she often ran to the toilet .. Generally, life was not sweet. After
operations (for me) - one pluses. All symptoms are almost gone. There are tides, but small, the seam has healed (lane operation), a neat shovchik (17cm) will not be visible in a separate swimsuit). I myself am not thin, but I lost 6 kg in the first week, I keep my weight, I hope and still lose. He always suffered from high pressure. Nothing has changed unfortunately with this. In fact, only now from pressure and I take pills. After the operation, the daub ended in 4-5 weeks, now there are no discharges. Sometimes the chest aches (as before menstruation), but it passes quickly. The organism is rebuilt. With my husband all right. After 2 months. You can begin sex life. I worried about it, but it turned out to be in vain. Probably due to the fact that one ovary remained, even additional lubrication is not needed. The body itself copes. For the husband there is no difference either. If it were not for the seam and I would not know that they were doing something with me. Once, the skin of my arms and legs became drier, I often smear with creams. I have normal skin on my face, I do not see any aging, fading, on the contrary, the skin has become cleaner. The only thing that can not be removed is the tummy over the seam, but then I understood for myself, the main thing is not to feed myself to disgrace. Complicated first 1.5 months. There are many restrictions, you presuppose, and then everything falls into place. Of course there will be spikes, they can not be avoided, but what happened, besides the fear that all this infection in you can turn into a cancer ... Operation is the way out. And most importantly. Tune in to the positive. Difficult, but necessary, thus avoid emotional problems! Believe me, she went through it all. All health!
Elena, thank you for sharing your experience. As for dry hands, then there may be a lack of some vitamins. Plus - autumn has begun ... Try changing the cream. There are creams that immediately create the effect of comfort, but somehow only wash away - dryness. Millions of women live with one ovary. Weight can return. But it does not depend on the operation. Need to adhere to proper nutrition. Talk to your doctor, if there are no contraindications, it is good to take fish oil and lecithin. They prevent obesity and improve the general condition. Health to you.
The fact that you had hot flashes, and after the removal of the uterus passed, forgive me-bred. Conversely, after the removal of the uterus, hot flashes begin.
Where did you read this? Elena writes that she has hot flashes, but small ones. But the tides do not begin after the removal of the uterus, but only if the ovaries are removed. Or they stop working (climax). Therefore, it is possible that Elena takes another malaise for them.
I wrote that the tides (at least the signs are very similar to menopausal), suffered from almost 38 years. I was operated on
47m. Now SUCH symptoms become less. Monthly no (and can not be, of course), feeling better, much more. There is no full menopause, one ovary is left. Harmony is not appointed. I will say to myself, if there was a choice 3-4 years ago, when my state of health began to get worse, they asked ... to do or wait, I would have agreed to this operation earlier. Last year I felt bad, and, most importantly, relief did not come and could not do anything. Only fear ... will there be another bleeding (will the painful periods end or not), how much does the fibroid and stomach increase at the same time? The doctor prescribed hormone pills, and from them only side. So for me, the operation was a great relief! Heavy first 2 months. Of course, there will be complications as well as after any band operation, but I think there would be much more of them, had I not done the operation.
Elena, 49 years old.
Good evening! Lovely women, I have this question: do you have menstrual discharge after a hysterectomy?
10/4/18 Subtotal hystereomy was done to me with the removal of the right appendage and ovary. The postoperative period was uneventful, kept the diet, walked every day, there was no discharge. On the 25th day, the chest began to hurt, it became tense and hot, as before menstruation, on the 27th day, the lower abdomen was dragged out, and the next day brown spotting appeared, which later changed to bloody. The chest has ceased to hurt. No pain, temperature too. My cycle before the operation was 26-27 days.
To say that I was scared to say nothing)) There was a panic, especially when I saw bloody discharge. I talked with the doctor by phone. She said that this happens if the cervix and ovary are preserved, which may have left a strip of the endometrium from the uterus, which is now being rejected. But I still feel anxious: isn't it too early? Just a month after the operation. Has anyone come across this? Sorry for the wordiness))
Helena! Do not look for a diagnosis on the Internet, go to the doctor for a checkup! Maybe the blood is "wild meat" or something else. Do not pull!
Good day, I am 43, the uterus and cervix were removed on 10/18/18, after 6 days I was already at home, I went to the dressing, today they are discharged. All this is sad, if there is no other way out, but not so terrible. problems with the toilet, but the main thing is not to panic, everything will be fine. Therefore, I tuned myself right away so that there were no depression. After 13 days, the seam hurts a little, there is no heaviness in the stomach, there is no discharge and the stomach has become smaller. I read a lot about sex and psychological, but no one writes about sports. When can I resume training and can I go jogging? Thank you!
Anna, thank you for sharing! Такие отзывы очень помогают тем, кто пока только готовится к операции… К спорту, конечно, можно будет вернуться. И даже нужно, чтобы быть в тонусе! Но тут лучше в врачом советоваться и к себе прислушиваться, так как все индивидуально.Strength training and everything related to the press, will have to be postponed. Should all heal well. Now you need to walk at least two hours a day, it helps to recover faster. And about running, check with your doctor. Perhaps in a couple of months everything will be possible)).
Thank you very much for the answer. No, of course, I was also afraid, but the main thing is how to set up yourself, there were women who yaikali, aikali, take pity on me, but you have to learn to live with it, on the 7th day I was already frying pancakes at home, of course you can’t overdo it, but you don’t have to lie either. Good luck to all women, do not be discouraged, everything will be fine. By the way, I live with my husband for 23 years, and what was removed to me, I did not tell him, and in general did not tell anyone, the operation and all. The less you know the better you sleep)))
I had a uterus and ovary surgery a year ago. At that time I was 40. The operation went well, there was no dry skin after anesthesia and I did not want to drink wildly, as they write here. Nothing hurt, in general, no discomfort was not. They brought me food when I was still in intensive care, that is, the next morning (the operation was done in the afternoon). The appetite was brutal. The doctor was scaring fast aging, that I would turn into an old woman ... Yes, a lot than they scared me there. But I refused to drink hormones, it is not so harmless to the body .. As a result, I feel happy, especially without those stupid menses, which until then had only ruined my life. Sex life is excellent, the attraction has not decreased (as they also frightened). And judging by the interest of the opposite sex, I’m far away from the old woman :) True, there are tides, but this is not critical. So it all depends on your inner spirit!
Polina, thank you for sharing your story. And tell me, do you not even take vegetable pills, despite the fact that there are no ovaries? I had strange symptoms after almost two months after the PO. I do not mean tides with them while you can live, but pressure jumps, some sort of shaking, especially in the mornings, lost your appetite, nausea, diarrhea, fears and PA. Said the effects of menopause. We must take pills. Signed up at the reception that they say, we'll see.
Good day! I am 48 years old. I have myoma 10-12 weeks. Monthly regularly. without much pain and discharge, not abundant. Every six months I do ultrasounds, the ovaries work very well, they say that I still have to give birth and give birth. Menopause is not expected for another five years (says my gynecologist). A small failure on the thyroid gland, but is observed at the endocrinologist. Feel good. All the tests are normal, but recently the CA-125 tumor marker passed, testimony 63 at a rate of 35. The gynecologist sends for an operation to remove the uterus. I would not want an operation, but this analysis scared me. How accurate are tumor markers?
My previous comment forgot to write that I turned 45 in February.
Good afternoon, the operation was done 2 months ago, the uterus was removed, I walk in a bandage, sometimes I wear utyazhki. My chest started to hurt before it was not like this, I did a mammogram, they said nothing terrible, come once a year to see some kind of depression appeared with the onset of autumn and rainy weather, I lost 5 kilograms of weight and had problems with my bowels and bladder nothing has changed, but the problem with the chest worries me may need to take hormones but the doctor did not tell me anything about it, my mother did the same operation now she is 78 years old, my sister will have the same operation, of course the problem of menstruation disappeared, until I understood the aging of the body, it may have passed a little, I was also scared to look like an old woman, of course, the operation is always stress, and the pain is too much and it hurts, I just wish everyone good health and if it happens that life alone , it concerns me and look at autumn how beautiful it is on a sunny day, good luck to all.
Natalia, hormones are prescribed only when removing the ovaries. Once the doctor has not appointed, it means not yet needed. Health to you!
The uterus was also removed, the ovaries were left. After 4 months, the ovaries are tired, because they have impaired blood circulation, their arteries are moving. The result is atrophy of the vagina and urinary. Now on hormones ..
Each individually. Yes, after removal of the uterus, the ovaries fade away faster. But what to do if there is no choice ... Health to you!
Natalia. I am 46. The operation was done at the beginning of September. Recovered quickly. But the other day I began to notice that somehow it was getting hot and hot. I want to breathe out the window. Pressure began to rise. I made an appointment with another doctor. I want to get an independent consultation.
I forgot to write about my grandmother. She was also removed in 46 years. Mom was shown the same operation. But in the remote hinterland this was not possible. Mom suffered herbs. But she died of a stroke. The doctor told me that I have a genetic disorder. The pain and symptoms were all similar to my mom. But I did not have to choose. Adenomtosis 4 degrees. I did not go. I did not eat. Saw something like a spoonful of water. After the operation I got up. But the effects of menopause scare of course. Especially who begins to tell horror stories.
I have my uterus and ovaries removed on October 14, 2018
At the same time put the mesh on the bladder.
I went to the fourth week. I felt very well after the operation, it can be said excellent. I already started to walk 3-5 km and do other exercises.
Two days ago, the temperature rose 37-37.5
And pulls down to the left (as buds appendages have a cold).
I called the doctor, said that the temperature was “therapeutic”, because 3 weeks after surgery.
What could it be?
And does it happen?
Could there be a rejection of the bladder mesh?
Before the operation went 30 km.
Will I be able again after surgery?
And what is the temperature (no cold, no cough, no sore throat)
Today is October 11, 2018! You write that the uterus was removed October 14, 2018. Like this.
Probably, Elena wanted to write on September 14, judging by the message, 3 weeks passed.
Elena, three weeks is a short time, the body is rebuilt. Donate blood to clear all doubts. Just take the doctor, do not take any diagnoses and tips on the Internet seriously. Without a uterus, you can walk for 30 km if there are no other health problems)). Much depends on the mood. Some of them start feeling themselves almost disabled by others, while others, on the contrary, begin to live fully without pain and other torment.
My uterus was removed in 2003, when I was 40, the uterus and ovary were removed (endometriosis of the uterus and ovarian cyst), menstruation went for 4 years without a break and yet the doctors decided to operate on it, so many years passed and I go a lot, and my breasts do not I hurt and at 53 I look at 43. So do not believe that you will quickly grow old, and by the way, I also did not gain weight
Lana, what pills have you been prescribed? I felt rather bad after 1.5 months, blaming everything on menopause.
Tell me if histology can make a mistake, how to check?
Take the glasses with histology to the cancer center. Blokhin in Moscow, on Kashirka .. There in the post-mortem department will be rechecked.
Hello, I have such a question? I found a polyp. I was sent for hysteroscopy. When I got the result, there was written moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma (g2) 1 of the endometrial and glandular-fibrous polyp of the endometrium. They propose to remove the uterus. I have not given birth. Tell me you can cure this is without removing the uterus. Just I'm not quite sure about the result of the histology. The result was given to me on a regular sheet without any seals and signatures. Is that what the official document should look like?
Tell me how to still deal with the operation with my excess weight and what will happen if I do not hurry with the operation?
Hello. The fact is that I have large fibroids (13 cm) and overweight, pulling the lower abdomen, and the doctor refuses to do the surgery due to my overweight, especially since I have a big belly. Myoma is located on the front wall below and puts pressure on the urinary, so I get up several times during the night in the toilet. The doctor refuses to do the surgery, and I am very much afraid. Losing weight is very problematic. Recently, I dropped the weight and then a little later I returned it again. What do I do to help.
Good day! I am 48. My gynecologist recommends removing the uterus and one ovary, on which there is a cyst, the second ovary is normal, but does not function. The last two years are abundant periods and, as a result, anemia, has treated her, now hemoglobin is normal. Monthly began to walk without a schedule with intervals of 2 months. The tides began, but not much disturbed. The uterus with multiple myomas, the largest node 13mm. I worry about the consequences of the operation - organ prolapse, problems with the bladder and whether the vaginal seams are painful during sexual contact. Tell me, please, how can this be avoided, and how often are these complications, what does it depend on?
Svetlana The doctor allowed to live sex in a month. It would be terribly scary. But everything went as it was before the operation. The only thing that she did not feel was the pains that tormented her. Urinary and intestine normal. Nothing changed. But of course I follow the diet. 5 times a day not in large portions. I eat everything. But for a little bit. Gases and sweets, that there was no accumulation of gases, it is better to limit.
Alain, thanks for the reply.
Hello, I am 48, my son is 22, menstruation stopped at 45. 3 months ago bleeding started, a polyp was found, scraped out, atypical endometrial hyperplasia + cyst was quite large on the left ovary, and the right small, not functioning normally, the uterus is also small. Doctors decided to remove the uterus and ovaries. Surgery (laparoscopy) a few days later, the day after tomorrow hospitalization. Now I feel good, no tides, the skin is good, the weight is normal. Very scary, how then everything will be. I read about urinary incontinence, disorders of the lymphatic system, aging of the skin, deterioration of hair and very much afraid of excess weight. There is a propensity, but I follow it. Since it is +3 kg, I immediately feel the load on the joints, and indeed, it is hard. Tell me please, is it all so, frequent urination, can there be exercises that support the organs so that they do not fall?
They responded with a letter, as personal questions.
How many sites have been read, but for some reason only you wanted to share your story. In the life of an activist. And into the fire and into the water and into the burning hut. Anyone who needs help. My husband and I are in the forefront. Not afraid of any work. What a house to build, what to dig holes, what floors to wash, do repairs, and manage.

I do …… .Not any kind of pathology. I haven't got up for a month already, crawling to the toilet. MRI of the head. Nothing. MRI of the uterus and ovaries no special abnormalities. Abdominal ultrasound is normal. On all parasites. Hidden infections. Nothing. On the 17th, bleeding began with loss of consciousness .... Brought clean. There were no potologies .... Almost sewn out of the hospital. Husband ran for doctors asked to put an anesthetic drip. Bought for my money. We looked like idiots. Himself pricked noshshu. Found an operating gynecologist .... and said that adenomyosis of 3 degrees ... germinated in the muscle layers. Nikupiruete pain nothing. Pressed in one place and said only delete.

The husband is torn between work, clinics and me. Hope does not lose ...
Dear Alain! Hold on! Yes, unfortunately, doctors are not always able to diagnose and determine what to treat ... and then they cannot always cure ... Believe in the best, change the specialists. Health to you.
When is hysterectomy prescribed?
Indications for surgery are:
- malignant neoplasms,
- prolapse or prolapse of the uterus,
- severe endometriosis,
- ectopic pregnancy,
- multiple fibroids.
The decision to remove the reproductive organ (uterus) is made by a qualified gynecologist after a detailed examination and the absence of positive results of long-term treatment.
Of course, all the patients who had to deal with this problem are ready for the coming menopause, and the appearance of bleeding can cause not only fear, but even a real panic. The operation itself is quite complicated, but the recovery period requires from the patient not only physical but also moral strength. It is important to remember that any surgical operation entails many changes, as it is an intervention in the body, and the described procedure is not an exception.
Types of hysterectomy
Removal of the uterus is an operation during which an amputation of the female reproductive organ is performed, but depending on the characteristics of each individual case during surgery, it can be removed:
- both ovaries and fallopian tubes,
- one ovary and one fallopian tube,
The consequences of surgery depend on what kind of surgery was performed on the patient. Amputation is the supravaginal removal of the genital organ, in which both the cervix, the fallopian tubes, and the ovaries are preserved. Extirpation - removal of the uterus, cervix, appendages. Subtotal hysterectomy - removal of a separate part of the body of the uterus (the indication is fibroid).
Radical hysterectomy is performed when malignant neoplasms are detected. This is the most difficult operation, during which not only the body of the uterus, fallopian tubes, glands that produce estrogens and the cervix are removed. Remove the surrounding tissue and lymph nodes.
Amputation or extirpation of the uterus is performed by cutting the abdominal wall or by a laparoscopic method, which will allow for low-invasive surgery, while maintaining the aesthetics of the abdominal wall, avoiding a massive incision.
Women who are to undergo such an operation should be firmly aware that menstruation, during which the detached endometrium layer is removed from the uterus, is simply impossible after removal of this organ. However, in the postoperative period for some time one, and sometimes several times a month, the patient appears discharge, resembling menstrual blood. Highlight these dark color, clotted. They are postoperative tissues, the removal of which from the patient's body will occur through the vagina.
The appearance of these secretions is in no way connected with the functional activity of the preserved ovaries. Normally, small blood clots may appear once or twice, after which comes a full menopause (postoperative menopause).
The reason for going to the gynecologist is the appearance of such secretions two months after the surgical procedure associated with the removal of the uterus, whether the ovaries are removed or preserved. Dark bloody discharge with clots should not bother the patient after more than six weeks. A woman should understand that menstruation is possible only with a uterus.
These days there is a rejection of the endometrium, prepared for the implantation of the ovum. The absence of the organ itself, in which the endometrium is located, causes the absence of menstruation, regardless of the presence of the ovaries. Discharges that a woman may take for menstruation may appear once or twice, but no more. This is a postoperative phenomenon that should disappear no later than two months after surgery.
Чего ждать в период реабилитации
Особенности восстановительного периода после удаления матки связаны с тем, были ли удалены оба яичника или один из них. In some cases, surgery takes place with the preservation of both ovaries, and in this case, the patient faces certain difficulties, which she should be aware of before the operation.
The recovery of the body is slow and brings with it significant changes, requiring increased attention to all functions of the body, especially hormonal changes. The stored ovaries continue to function, producing estrogens throughout the term, laid down genetically.
In patients undergoing surgery, the functionality of the ovaries, preserved after amputation or extirpation, stops a couple of years earlier than in other women. Such patients are less likely to experience hot flashes and dizziness, general weakness and drops in blood pressure. They rarely complain of lower abdominal pain and note preserved libido.
In some cases, the menstrual cycle is preserved with minor deviations. Menstruation is painful, causing discomfort to the patient, or menstruation comes at the same time in the form of small bleeding. Preservation of the ovaries after removal of the uterus ensures the absence of hormonal disruption. If only one ovary is removed, then the hormonal balance is slightly disturbed, but the patient encounters:
- with the problem of disturbed menstrual cycle,
- severe pain in the lower abdomen, accompanied by slight bleeding,
- pain that occurs during intercourse.
Patients with one ovary do not complain of noticeable changes in their general state of health, since even one ovary can maintain hormonal balance in a woman’s body.
The bleeding or small bleeding, appearing with a certain cyclical nature, becomes a cause for concern and causes the woman who underwent surgery to seek urgent help from a gynecologist. To provoke the appearance of bleeding can:
- sexual intercourse,
- weight lifting
- excessive exercise
- hot bath
- stressful situation.
The result is an inflammatory process, which is quite difficult to fight. The prolonged bleeding is also a great danger because there is a threat of developing an ascending infection.
The postoperative period lasts no more than two weeks. What will be its course, fully depends on whether the ovaries are stored or removed. Those patients who have saved the ovaries, it is easier to recover, since the function of these organs is preserved and there is no hormonal imbalance.
In order to avoid the development of complications or pathological processes, patients should strictly adhere to the regimen and strictly follow all the recommendations received from the gynecologist. This applies to:
- power supply,
- playing sports
- physical exertion
- sex life.
Careful and careful attitude to yourself and your body will help you quickly recover and return to normal life.
