Why might I be offered Laparoscopic Hysterectomy?

You might be offered laparoscopic hysterectomy for number of different conditions. These include:

  • Heavy or irregular periods, not responding to the progesterone-releasing coil (Mirena) or treatment to the lining of your womb (Endometrial Ablation)

  • Painful periods • Endometriosis not responding to other treatment

  • Fibroids

  • Suspected or proven cancer of the uterus

The benefits of Laparoscopic Hysterectomy (keyhole surgery) are:

  • Shorter hospital stay (24 hours)

  • Faster recovery back to normal (2-3 weeks)

  • Less blood loss during the operation

  • Less wound infection and breakdown

  • Minimal scarring

Are there alternative treatment options?

There are different routes of offering hysterectomy, which depends on your condition.
These include:

  • Abdominal hysterectomy - Performed through a larger cut in your abdomen.

  • Vaginal hysterectomy – Performed without any cut in your abdomen and the womb is removed through the vagina

You need to discuss with your doctor if the above options are suitable for you.

Does the sexuality of a woman get affected after the removal of cervix?

There is no evidence that mentions the sexuality of a woman being affected. In fact, a few studies have shown that women have an increase in satisfaction with or without the cervix. An increase in satisfaction may be because of a halt in the abnormal uterine bleeding, pelvic pain, and use of contraceptives. Also, there is no evidence of an alteration in the orgasm experienced by a woman, by undergoing total laparoscopic hysterectomy. However, in case of any discomfort, consult the doctor immediately.

What happens before the operation?

The pre-operative visit: Before your visit, we will invite you to a pre-operative assessment clinic where you will be assessed for fitness for the surgery. You will be seen by a member of the nursing staff who will ask questions about your previous medical history and will arrange for some tests i.e. blood test. You may also have a chest x-ray and ECG. You will also be told if you need to stop taking your medications or not on the day of the operation.

Patients undergoing total laparoscopic hysterectomy may recover quickly, usually may go home the same day or the next day after a night stay in the hospital. They may return to their normal routine within 1 to 2 weeks. They may experience minimal pain, which reduces with the use of painkillers prescribed by the doctor.

How long does the operation take?

The laparoscopic surgery may take about 60 to 90 minutes to complete.

Is there a chance of pregnancy after undergoing a total laparoscopic hysterectomy?
