Frequently Asked Questions
Depending on the problem being treated, you may need a different form of Hysterectomy. The main types are as follows:
- Total Hysterectomy – During this procedure, the uterus’s cervix and complete body are removed. The most typical kind of Hysterectomy is this one
- Partial Hysterectomy – In this procedure, a portion of the uterus is removed, leaving the cervix unharmed.
- Radical Hysterectomy – Radical hysterectomy involves the removal of the uterus, cervix, upper vaginal wall, and surrounding tissues. It is frequently carried out for specific gynecologic malignancies
A hysterectomy can relieve various medical issues, increasing a woman’s quality of life. Some benefits include:
- Relieving persistent pelvic pain and unusual bleeding
- The disappearance of endometriosis and uterine fibroids symptoms
- Successful treatment for several gynecological malignancies
- The avoidance of further pelvic infections in those with persistent PID
Although hysterectomy provides many benefits, there are some downsides and limitations as well:
- Infection – Infections could develop at the surgery site or around the pelvis
- Bleeding – Blood transfusions or extra procedures may be needed if a patient bleeds excessively during or after surgery
- Injury to nearby organs – During surgery, it’s possible to unintentionally harm blood vessels, the bladder, or the colon.
- Infertility – Hysterectomy causes infertility, which prevents a woman from becoming pregnant and carrying it to term.
