A surgery to remove the uterus is known as a hysterectomy.
Depending on the reason and severity for which you need to have this surgery, the ovaries and fallopian tubes can also be removed (uni or bilateral adnexectomy).
The most common symptoms are:
Severe chronic infections (pelvic inflammatory disease)
Severe inflammation of the inner lining of the uterus (endometritis)
Tumors in the uterus
Cancer of the cervix, uterus or ovary
Heavy, chronic vaginal bleeding
This surgery can be performed by abdominal, vaginal or laparoscopic surgery.
It is usually performed by laparoscopy since it allows for greater precision, millimetric incisions and reduces bleeding.
This surgery is usually performed under general anaesthesia and typically takes between 90 to 120 minutes.
It consists of making about three millimetric incisions in the abdomen through which the surgeon inserts the surgical instruments that allow him to carry out the removal of the uterus (upper, complete uterus, uterus and ovaries or uterus and ovaries and tubes)
After the surgery you will be taken to the recovery room and from there to the ward where you will remain for approximately 2 to 3 days.
By means of this surgery we are able to eliminate the disease for which we required treatment.
The recovery period for this type of surgery is up to 3 or 4 weeks. After 15 days you will have a follow-up appointment so it will be necessary for you to stay in Spain at least until that visit.
