You were at the hospital to undergo vaginal hygiene. This article will provide information about what to expect and how you can take care of yourself once you have returned home from the procedure.
When You’re In Hospital?
A vaginal hysterectomy was performed while you were still in the hospital. Your surgeon cut your vagina. This procedure allowed your surgeon to remove your uterus.
Your surgeon may have used a laparoscope (a thin tube equipped with a small camera) or other instruments, which were inserted into the abdomen via several small incisions.
Your uterus was taken out in parts or entirely. Your fallopian tubes (or ovaries) may also have been removed. You may be able to go home right away or may stay in the hospital for 1 to 2 days.
The female reproductive system is complex. There are always problems, just like any system. Sometimes surgery is required when therapies and treatments don’t work. Hysterectomy is surgery to remove the woman’s uterus or womb. This is a major component of this system. Let’s take a look at the procedure. There are many reasons women may need a Hysterectomy. They could be suffering from endometrial, cervical, or other cancers. Others include severe endometriosis. They can also have growths other than the uterus. Your doctor might remove the entire uterus in a hysterectomy or only a portion. The fallopian tubs, which link the ovaries and the body, can also be removed. There are several ways to perform a hysterectomy. You may need to cut your stomach or vagina. It can be performed by robotic surgery or laparoscopy. This involves a small camera and smaller incisions. Your doctor can help determine which type of procedure is best. After surgery, you will receive pain medication to alleviate your discomfort. A catheter, also known as a tube, may be inserted into your bladder to allow you to pass urine for up to a day. After surgery, you will be asked for mobility and to get up and move around as soon as it is over. This prevents blood from clotting and speeds up your recovery. The type of hysterectomy determines how long you will stay at the hospital. The robot-assisted type of hysterectomy means that you’ll be able to return home the following day. Women who have had a successful hysterectomy are usually discharged within two to three days. You may need to stay longer if your hysterectomy was due to cancer. Depending on the type and extent of your hysterectomy, recovery can take up to six weeks. Your ovaries will be removed after a Hysterectomy. You may experience a lower sex drive if your ovaries are also removed. Your doctor may then recommend estrogen replacement therapy. There are good things. It is possible to get rid of these problematic organs.
What To Expect At Home?
It can take anywhere from 3 to 6 weeks for your body to feel better. The first two weeks are the most painful. Most women will need to take pain medication regularly and limit their activities in the first 2 weeks. After this time you might feel tired but no pain. You may not feel the need to eat as often.
Unless your doctor used laparoscopes or other instruments that were inserted through your belly, you will not see any scarring. You’ll only see 2 to 4 small scars, each measuring less than 3 cm.
The light spotting may last for between 2 and 4 weeks. It can be pink, yellow, or brownish. It should not have an unpleasant odor.
If you had a good sex function before the operation, you can expect to continue having good sex function. Sexual function is often restored if there was severe bleeding. Talk with your health care provider if there is a decrease in your sexual functions after your hysterectomy.
Slowly increase your activity each day. You can start by walking short distances and then increase the distance gradually. Do not jog or do sit-ups until you’ve checked in with your provider.
For the first few weeks after surgery, you should not lift anything greater than a gallon (3.8 L) of milk. For the first 2 weeks, you should not drive.
Do not put anything in your vagina for the next 8 to 12 weeks. Douching and using tampons will not be allowed.
After 8 weeks, you should not have sexual intercourse. Your provider may allow you to start after that time. You might need to wait 12-14 weeks if you had vaginal surgeries along with your Hysterectomy. Make sure to check with your provider.
