Why and for what reasons is removal of the uterus and uterus done?

Uterus is an important organ in girls. Because it contains the baby and from here the bleeding of the period occurs every month. A hysterectomy is the removal of the uterus. As a result, after this operation, the patient will not have periods very naturally and will not be able to conceive. In some cases, the ovaries and fallopian tubes are also removed during this operation. Why is the removal of the uterus or uterus , surely want to know? Let's go into details about this.

What are the reasons for this operation?

This operation is done for various reasons, such as-

  • Any cancer of the uterus, cervix or ovaries
  • A hysterectomy is also performed for benign (not cancerous) problems, such as fibroids, adenomyosis.
  • Endometriosis
  • Heavy bleeding during periods, with much pain
  • Descending uterus etc

Are there alternatives to removing the uterus?

First, in most cases treatment is started with medicine. When medicine does not give good results, surgery is decided. Other solutions other than surgery are —

1) Fibroid tumor

In this case, the operation depends on the size of the tumor and the extent of the patient's problem. Sometimes certain medications can reduce bleeding, and even shrink the size of the tumor to temporarily ease the pain. For those who want to have children , the operation is Myomectomy, in which only the tumor is removed.

2) Adenomyosis/Endometriosis

Many types of hormonal drugs and pain killers are prescribed to reduce pain and bleeding. For those who wish to conceive, laparoscopic cyst removal, adheolysis, and correction of the anatomy of the reproductive system are performed.

3) Uterine prolapse

A variety of exercises, such as Kegel exercises, are suggested in the initial stage. Besides, vaginal ring, pessary and Fothergills operation can be alternative to hysterectomy.

What are the ways of operation?

  • Abdominal means by cutting the stomach
  • vaginal
  • Laparoscopic hysterectomy

In what condition is the ovary removed?

It depends on the age of the patient, the type of disease and the condition of the ovary. If family planning is complete and the age is close to menopause , the ovaries and fallopian tubes are discarded along with the uterus, eliminating the possibility of ovarian cancer later.

What can be the problem if the ovary is dropped?

Ovary is an important organ in girls. Estrogen and progesterone hormones come from here. Ovary removal will lead to surgical menopause due to lack of this hormone. That is, the patient has burning hands and feet, restlessness, sleep problems, mood swings, decreased sexual need, lack of calcium in the body , etc. For this reason, hormone replacement therapy is required in many cases. Your age, physical condition and doctor will decide what your next treatment will be.

How long does it take to heal?

The patient can go home within two to three days of this operation. Abdominal hysterectomy usually allows the patient to return to normal activities within four to six weeks, while vaginal and laparoscopic operations can take up to four weeks.

Much information is known about the removal of the uterus. I also learned why this surgery is necessary and how long it takes to recover. Fresh fruits and vegetables, wholegrains and fiber-rich foods should be included in the food chart for recovery after hysterectomy surgery. Must maintain a healthy lifestyle. So far today. stay well
