Generally, women after entering into their late 40s start experiencing certain hormonal changes and associated complications leading to heavy bleeding per vaginum and unusual pain in the lower abdomen. In certain severe conditions, which we will discuss in the next section, gynaecologist advises for uterus removal surgery cost. The procedure done to remove the uterus is called as TLH i.e, Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy. There are many alternatives to a TLH are available including non-surgical treatments and medications.

WHY HYSTERECTOMY IS ADVISED?


There are many reasons why a gynaecologist recommends hysterectomy or uterus removal for women.

Certain conditions including life-threatening uterine cancer called Endometrial cancer or cervical cancer or cancer in ovaries make it necessary for the gynaecologist to suggest for uterus removal. Other conditions, such as fibroids and endometriosis, however, not life-threatening but can cause heavy bleeding, more pain and discomfort making the TLH procedure essential for the patient.

TYPES OF HYSTERECTOMIES PERFORMED

Hysterectomy or uterus removal surgery is done under general anaesthesia. The most common types of hysterectomy are:

  • Total Laparoscopic hysterectomy which is done using laparoscopy.
  • Subtotal/partial hysterectomy
  • Abdominal hysterectomy

Type of procedure is defined by the surgeon based on the severity of the condition and other factors like the age of the patient.

ANY RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH UTERUS REMOVAL SURGERY

The risks of hysterectomy are negligible when compared to the risk of not getting the condition treated that way. Still a few risks like general risks of any surgery, complications of anaesthesia are there.

RECOVERY AFTER UTERUS REMOVAL

The recovery from hysterectomy surgery depends on the type of procedure performed.

An abdominal hysterectomy requires typically 6 to 8 weeks for the recovery. On the other hand Laparoscopic hysterectomy recovers in a shorter time.

Hysterectomy is the surgical intervention for uterus removal suggested by a gynaecologist. This procedure is done in different ways. These are:

  1. VAGINAL HYSTERECTOMY : This surgery is a minimally invasive surgery where the uterus is taken out through the vagina.
  2. TOTAL LAPAROSCOPIC HYSTERECTOMY OR TLH : In TLH, the uterus is removed using a laparoscope. It is the minimally invasive surgery for uterus removal.
    • Laparoscopically Assisted Vaginal Hysterectomy : In this procedure, small incisions or cuts are made in the abdomen and vagina as well to remove the uterus. This procedure is also carried out using a laparoscope.
    • Robotic-Assisted Hysterectomy : This procedure is performed with the aid of a computer and robotics involving small abdominal incisions.
    • Abdominal Hysterectomy: This type of hysterectomy is the traditional approach, where the uterus is removed making a large incision in the abdomen. It is an outdated procedure because of delayed recovery.

  2. PAIN : Pain too depends upon the type of hysterectomy performed. Patients with a vaginal hysterectomy or abdominal one, experience pain for two or more weeks. On the other hand, women who underwent TLH recovers from pain in a shorter time within a week.
  3. RISKS AND COMPLICATIONS AFTER HYSTERECTOMY : There are no complications and risks associated with the surgery in most women but still few risks after hysterectomy may include the following:
