Many women choose hysterectomy as a remedy for endometriosis. However, it is important to gather all the facts before deciding to undergo a course of endometriosis.
Endometriosis can return after a hysterectomy and oophorectomy. Endometriosis occurs when endometrial cells find their way outside the uterus and implant it in various places such as the bladder, bowel, ovaries, and other areas of the pelvic cavity. In fact, Endo can implant itself almost anywhere in the body.
Unfortunately, there is currently no medically proven cure for endometriosis. There are many documented cases of endometriosis that persist despite complete hysterectomy and oophorectomy.
The following study “The incidence of endometriosis in women after hysterectomy” indicates in part: Endometriosis is found laparoscopically in a significant number of women observed with chronic pelvic complications after bilateral oysturectingo oophorectomy).
The choice of a hysterectomy is important. We must all take into account our situation and our health situation. The best thing a patient can do is learn all about endometriosis.
If you are considering a hysterectomy for endometriosis, patients who have had the same condition should request at least a second (or third and fourth!) Medical report before scheduling surgery and, if possible, contacting endometriosis. You have treatment options available, you need to try them out first.
If you are going for a hysterectomy, you probably want the most experienced doctor you can find for the surgery so that as much endo as possible is recognized and eliminated. If you decide to have your ovaries removed, you will also benefit from a doctor who is very familiar with endo and HRT (hormone replacement therapy). Although estrogen feeds endometriosis, hormones are beneficial for many aspects of our general health including the function of the heart, bones, skin, eyes, sex drive, etc.
You are late for day surgery, you will probably notice it due to pelvic pain, bloating or changes in stool. The symptoms are probably similar to what you felt before your hysterectomy. However, if you suffer from pelvic pain or bowel problems, that doesn’t necessarily mean endometriosis is the culprit. For patients with endometriosis, it is easy to assume that the pain from the lower chest to the thigh must be endometriosis. However, there can be a number of illnesses that can cause pain in this area of the body.
It is important that the reminder toes women do not experience endometriosis problems after their surgery. Each patient should do what they think is best and hope for the best. While there is no guarantee that the future will be endo-free after surgery, there is no guarantee that it will not be either.
