Total Laparoscopic


Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

A total laparoscopic hysterectomy is a surgical procedure that removes the uterus. The uterus is separated from the inside of the body and removed in small pieces via small incisions or vagina. A hysterectomy is a major surgical procedure with psychological as well as physical consequences.

Total laparoscopic hysterectomy is used to treat conditions like painful or heavy menstrual periods, pelvi pain, fibroids or as part of cancer treatment.

A vaginal, abdominal,or laparoscopic hysterectomy can be performed. Although laparoscopic hysterectomy has advantages such as a shorter recovery period and less postoperative pain, it is associated with a higher risk of complications, particularly urinary tract injury.
Laparoscopic SIMS Hospital
In the operating room, the surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Just below your umbilicus, a tiny incision is created. A fibra-optic tool called a laparoscope is introduced into the abdomen and inflated with gas to examine the internal organs. On your abdomen, more small incisions may be made through which tiny surgical instruments are passed. The uterus and cervix, as well as the ovaries and tubes, are then removed.
Precautions before the procedure:
You can continue to take your normal prescriptions, unless your doctor advises. You may require a bowel preparation which will empty your bowels prior to surgery. For this, a liquid diet (soups, jellies, juices or any similar liquids) should be followed for 24 hours before to surgery.Smoking should be avoided, and if you experience any symptoms of illness before your surgery, you can contact Dr.Gopinath to assist further.
When you wake up from anaesthetic, you will be in the recovery room. For the next few hours, you might feel tired. Because of the gas used in the operation, you may experience pain in your shoulder or back. It clears up in a day or two. For a few days after the surgery, you may experience some soreness or fatigue. If the discomfort or nausea does not go away or gets worse, see your doctor. You should refrain from strenuous activity or exercise until you have fully recovered.

After the operation, you may experience some vaginal discharge for a few days. You should be able to resume normal activities in three months, but full healing may take longer. You will no longer be able to conceive or menstruate after the surgery.

You could have bladder and bowel problems, as well as an increased risk of urogenital prolapse.
