After all, Kies reasoned, women have hysterectomies all the time -- some , were performed in the United States in alone. But five years later, Kies regrets ever having the surgery. She gets hot flashes and can't stand extreme cold. She gets depressed and has mood swings. Her desire for sex has vanished.
In recent years, critics ranging from gynecologists to special-interest groups to researchers have been urging women to get the facts before they have a hysterectomy. Critics charge that far too many hysterectomies are being performed. Critics say the aftereffects of hysterectomy can be long-term and debilitating, especially if the ovaries are removed with the uterus. However, women have been led to believe that a hysterectomy is a panacea. Coffey charges that the reason physicians are so willing to perform hysterectomies is because of the money that the procedure generates.
You have to give gynecologists some other surgery that makes as much money for them as hysterectomies do before they abandon them," Coffey says. Even groups such as The People's Medical Society, an Allentown-based consumers group, strongly recommend that women seek a second opinion when told that they need a hysterectomy. Ask a lot of questions. If necessary, get a third opinion," says Michael Donio, project director for People's Medical Society.
Lehigh Valley-area gynecologists, however, defend the procedure. Hysterectomies are always necessary when cancer is involved, area physicians say, adding that, when alternative measures fail, hysterectomy is the only option. It's not," says Dr. Stephen Klasko, an Allentown obstetrician and gynecologist. Klasko says he's had patients who put off having hysterectomies because they were afraid. But when they finally had them, they couldn't thank him enough.
Indeed, Georgia Meyer of Bethlehem, now 58, says her hysterectomy in was a godsend. Meyer had unusually heavy menstrual bleeding. My blood count was dropping. I was just so relieved to have this problem over with," she says. The uterus, or womb as it is also called, is a pear-shaped organ that measures about three inches but grows in size during pregnancy. The uterus is removed to alleviate cancer; heavy menstrual bleeding, fibroids and endometriosis, a condition where the lining of the uterus -- the endometrium -- grows on the ovaries, fallopian tubes and on rare occasion other organs.
A hysterectomy is also performed for a prolapsed uterus, a condition where the uterus gradually slips into the pelvic area, the vagina and sometimes outside the vaginal opening. The problem, says Dr. Like all major surgeries, hysterectomy carries a risk. Some 2, women a year die from complications from the procedure. Another , suffer nonfatal complications, Goldfarb points out in his book.
Goldfarb says the complaints of hot flashes, depression, loss of sexual desire, vaginal dryness and other problems are all too real, especially if women have had their ovaries removed. They are real effects," said Goldfarb, director of the gynecology department at Montclair Community Hospital in Montclair, N.
Physicians interviewed for this article generally agree that aftereffects of hysterectomy --sometimes called post-hysterectomy syndrome -- depend on the woman's emotional outlook and whether she has had her ovaries removed along with her uterus. Although groups such as HERS argue otherwise, Klasko says there is no scientific evidence that suggests that the removal of the uterus alone results in a loss of hormones or causes any other kind of physiological changes that would result in depression, loss of sexual desire, fatigue, hot flashes or other symptoms.
Klasko, like many gynecologists, believes that if the uterus is removed, but at least one ovary is left intact, then any resulting problems are psychological in nature. The average age for a hysterectomy is Klasko says it is difficult for some women to accept an abrupt end of their childbearing years.
Without a uterus a woman's menstruation cycle ceases. Carol Karom, 40, of Zionsville was a year-old mother of three when she had her uterus and ovaries removed to alleviate heavy bleeding. Karom says she had trouble accepting the fact that she could not have a child with her second husband.
The doctor said, 'This the hysterectomy is what's got to be done. Karom's friend, whose name has been changed to June for this article, is still emotionally distraught three years after her hysterectomy. Although she was 40 at the time she had the operation, June says she desperately wanted to have a child with her husband, who is younger than she is.
We are going to their recitals, going to their games. We will never have this pleasure," says June. June, who had a benign fibroid that weighed less than one pound, says the doctors ignored her when she told them that she wanted to keep her uterus so she could have a child. They thought, 'Oh, she's What difference does it make?
Klasko says the loss of the uterus also may make a woman feel like less than a woman. Likewise, a husband may harbor feelings that his wife couldn't possibly be as sexual or feminine as she once was. Under these conditions, Klasko says, it's easy to see how a woman could suffer a psychological loss of sexual desire or a loss of self-esteem. Mine was also a dermoid cyst on my left hand side and was removed intact. Thankfully the CA tumour marker and biopsy came back as benign which was a relief.
I do bloat up although am not sure this is definitely related to this condition I thought it was possibly a food intolerance. Apparently there was endometriosis too, although again I was unaware as my cycle is regular, I don't have painful periods and they. I know it's hard but try not to worry about the op. They keep on top of pain medication and can give anti sickness drugs if you feel nauseous.
They were going to fit a catheter, but them omitted to. I was able to get up and go to the toilet although I did have an ensuing room so didn't have to walk far. It was slow going, but was able to walk a little the day of the op and the next day.
I did end up with a larger cut than just the keyhole so was kept in hospital 3 days. I'm 5 weeks post op today and feeling better but do still get tired very easily. I needed to rest most of the time for the first week and felt very weak for the second week, but by week 3 was feeling stronger. My scar still gets sore where the larger incision is and burns if I do too much or hold anything heavy against my stomach but again Is getting easier.
I am getting hot flushes but then I have had this before from a previous spinal surgery and it was either a reaction to the anaesthetic or my body going into shock. It may be hormone related this time but need to give it more time to see what happens.
I hope it goes well this week, I'm sure you will be fine, waiting is hard but you'll have it out of the way before Christmas and can then start getting better and hopefully relieving your symptoms. Good luck! You'll be fine, but know how awful the waiting is, it's almost a relief to get into hospital and know that you'll soon be the right side. I understand re the adhesions as although I'd not had previous abdominal surgery, have had 8 spine surgeries and suffer with adhesions from that.
The surgeon will be used to dealing with this and will take his time not to injure other organs. Good luck for this week and you will be fine to enjoy Christmas. Must admit I've never been able to eat much, but am a grazer so can't say if things have changed but hope you are able to feel less bloated and enjoy food again. I've got a follow up appointment in the New Year to check on my recovery and keep an eye on the endometriosis.
I've also been asked to keep a symptoms diary. Good luck and will be thinking if you, take care! Yep, I still get the nausea too but have anti sickness tablets at home for when it's bad, but then I'm never good with medications. I've also lost 5 lbs since the op too and was underweight before I started but have always had a small frame. Perhaps this will give me a head start for when menopause kicks in and the pounds pile on! So pleased you're on the road to recovery. The trapped gas did ease with walking, but then I didn't have much energy to walk and was slow.
It will pass. I did mostly sleep and rest for the for the first two weeks and started to feel more like myself the third week. As you've noticed it was light, restless sleep and oftener wake ar am Don't think I left the house until week 3 and then it was just a friend picking me up and driving me a very short distance for a coffee. It definitely takes longer than I thought. I planned to go back to work at 4 weeks, but the consultant wanted me to stay off until January this is my 3 red significant surgeries this year, so the body is pretty worn out.
I did want to go back to work and have so much to do so we compromised that I would take another 2 weeks off and then return on a phased return basis, with limited driving and working from home. I started back yesterday and am absolutely wiped out, this is week 6. I started to get hot flushes at week 3 and was pretty bad week , but they do seem to be easing now.
My period came at the right time 2 weeks post op, but am now late with my next one so amnot sure what is happening there. Your comment re jet washing the insides is an excellent description and does sun up what it feels like. This has eased too, although I needed a larger incision as well as they lap cuts, so this scar is burning and when I do too much my insides do seem to pull and I start to hunch over.
It is early days Yor you, take it slowly, be knind to yourself and rest, I hoovered for the first time this weekend my husband and mum have been hoovering, I've not left the house in a mess , and again whilst it felt okay at the time I knew about it that night and the next day.
I'm still not doing any lifting yet and wouldn't be able to push a shopping trolley, I guess every cloud I done the wrong thing yesterday and got dressed only a track suit my child said mum can you drive now I must admit once you 'real up and about and dressed people think you are back to normal.
My middle child did exactly the same wanting lifts back and to from college once he knew I could drive. Remember you are still recovering, driving is still tiring and pulls at 6 weeks, so do be careful. It is good to hear that you 're feeling better and having more colour though. Hopefully the sleep will improve as things settle.
I am being careful re housework but am feeling it at night after 2 days in work I'm shattered and things are pulling. In terms of period, our bodies should regulate and have monthly periods, oh joy! I don't know if the spasms and cramps are symptoms of the surgery or not, but i do know that it hurts, and i am out of my hydrocodones that they gave me.
That doesn't make any sense to me at all really for me to wait the whole 6 weeks before she will see me for the first time after surgery. I thought that she would see me next week and then again 4 weeks after that, but no. Can someone please give me some advice on this please? I don't know what to do about this now.

New discussion Reply. ItsChelle hollygrove What did your doctor recommend going about your cyst? ItsChelle jill Sorry for the delay reply but wow, theee surgeries this year? My period came on a week late, which was the 30th. It felt pretty normal also. Not only did the breathing tube damage my throat, I had to go see my family dr bc I could barely swallow and had developed thrush on top of healing.
Delicatepetal ItsChelle. Delicatepetal jill ItsChelle Delicatepetal. Also I had looked into symptoms of PCOS and although I just had one cyst, my acne was terrible these last few years and my hair was thinning so that was a big indicator.
After the surgery it took me a minimum of at least two full weeks to feel better. I definitely would cancel any plans you have for the next few weeks. I hope your dr appointment goes well and keep us updated! The nausea and little eating, I definitely relate! Take care, rest and take one day at a time. Hopefully the night sweats will pass soon too! By the way I am
