A hysterectomy is removal of a woman’s uterus and the surgery is a common remedy in cases of cancer, abnormal periods and bleeding, recurring cervix infections, polyps or fibroid tumors.
Common Issues Leading To Uterus Removal
Common causes are hormonal imbalances, fibroids, polyps, infections of the cervix and cancer. Related symptoms may include heavy or long periods, bleeding between periods or bleeding after menopause. Other surgical or medical approaches can treat the condition successfully – discuss your options with your doctor.
What Are The Possible Risks After Surgery?
If a woman has not yet reached menopause, there should be no other option before uterus removal is considered. Sometimes complications will occur later with patients that have had a hysterectomy. Some of these problems are listed and should be taken seriously.
- Risk of urinary incontinence.
- Hormonal changes
- Anxiety, depression, irritability
- Decreased sex drive
- Vaginal dryness
- Higher risk of heart disease
- Higher risk of osteoperosis
The Surgery Is Common But There Can Be Complications
There are over 600,000 hysterectomy surgeries performed each year so the procedure is fairly common and safe. There are definitely some risks from the surgery itself which are listed below.
- Damage to the urinary tract, bladder, or other adjacent organs that might require another surgery.
- Complications from anesthesia.
- Heavy bleeding, blood loss.
- Blood clotting in the lungs
- Triggering of early menopause if the ovaries are removed
- Infection after surgery
- Allergic reaction to medicines
Short of having cancer or cervix issues, it would be wise to consider all options with your physician before having your uterus removed. The surgery would not be urgent in this case, and there are other options to consider.
Should You Be Considering The Surgery?
Do you have any of the following complications?
- lower back or pelvic pain
- pain during your periods
- painful sex
- feeling of pain or fullness in lower abdomen
- heavy menstrual bleeding
- miscarriage or inability to get pregnant
Any of these issues along with having fibrous tumors, or fibroids, in the uterus can all be related. If you have any of these symptoms and don’t know if you have fibroids you should find out. If you do have uterine fibroids then you should consider what might be the cause and if you can get rid of them through your diet or other means besides surgery. You can always elect later to have the surgery but consider doing research and taking some action.
There Are Options So Do Your Research
There is medical research to show that toxins in our bodies combined with heightened hormonal levels, low metabolism, low immunity and poor diet can lead to development of fibroids in the uterus or lining of the uterus wall. What if you could change the foods and nutrition you are getting and get rid of the fibroids without surgery?
