Hysterectomy or removal of the uterus

In this type of surgery, the uterus is removed from the body, which is done with or without the removal of the ovaries. It should be noted that the ovaries secrete female hormones, and if they are not removed from the body, the patient's body system remains the same as before, meaning that his sexual desire does not change and female hormones are released. Sometimes the uterus bleeds that is not controllable with medication or there are cellular changes in its tissue. Such as cancerous lesions or large fibroids or genetic changes, in which the surgeon has to remove the uterus from the patient's body.

Surgical method

Hysterectomy is performed in two ways, open and closed:

A. Laparoscopic hysterectomy (closed method): One of the relatively new methods is laparoscopic hysterectomy that does not require cutting and opening the abdomen. This type of surgery is performed using a device called a laparoscope. In this procedure, the uterus is removed through small incisions made in the abdomen. In this method, the uterus is removed through the vagina or through the same small incisions made. Laparoscopic hysterectomy has many advantages for the patient compared to other methods. In this method, septic shock and infection after surgery are less seen than the open and vaginal method.
B. Abdominal or open hysterectomy: One of the most common methods of hysterectomy surgery is abdominal or abdominal hysterectomy. In a hysterectomy through the abdomen, a 5-to-7-inch incision is made in the abdomen and then the uterus is removed. One of the complications of abdominal hysterectomy is postoperative scarring, especially in obese people.
It is important to note that the appropriate method for surgery is determined only by the surgeon and the surgeon chooses the hysterectomy technique after examining the patient's condition. Both methods can be performed under both general and spinal anesthesia.

After entering the hospital and final admission, you will be taken to the international patients’ ward by the head of the international patients’ ward to get acquainted with the treatment staff and your doctor. There, your specialist doctor will examine you. Your medical record will be created and all information such as the pills you are taking or your treatment history or possible problems you have had in the past will be reviewed and recorded by the medical team. You will then be admitted to be monitored to prepare for the operation. In the meantime, you will be evaluated by a nurse and your blood pressure will be checked and a blood sample will be taken from you to register your blood type and that you will go to the laboratory to check your blood sugar and cholesterol, etc. You will also be examined by a cardiologist and you will have an ECG taken from you and an echocardiogram if necessary. You will then be examined by an anesthesiologist to determine if you can have this surgery. You will be given information about the operation and pre-surgery training.

You are taken to the operation room according to a pre-determined time. You will be anesthetized and after a few minutes your surgery begins. Then one of the surgical methods is used on you. After the surgery, you will be taken to the recovery ward to be monitored and your vital signs will be recorded second by second and you will be constantly monitored by the anesthesiologist and surgeon to regain consciousness. After you regain consciousness, according to your doctor's diagnosis, you will either return to your ward or be taken to the intensive care unit. Your medication, which was started the day before to prevent infection, will continue. Also, your bleeding will be completely under control and your dressings will be changed regularly. On this day, a urinary catheter will be inserted for you and will be regularly checked and washed. Serum therapy has also been started for you to regain physical strength. After being awakened by your doctor, you will be examined in the ward. If you have been sampled, the sample will be sent to a pathologist. This is done to further examine the uterine tissue for cancer or not or other features. If necessary, more tests will be taken to ensure your health. During this period, according to the doctor's diagnosis, either a painkiller is used for you, or a pain pump is installed.

Nursing care continues and you are examined daily by your doctor. Your catheter is constantly monitored and rinsed regularly. You will also be given the necessary training to take care of the catheter and how to use it. In addition, you will be given other care training by the head of the International Patient Unit. During these two days, with the help of your nurse, you get out of bed and walk so that your body regains its strength.

If your condition is stable, the necessary training will be provided by the treatment team after discharge for home care and proper exercise or diet. If needed and at the doctor's discretion, you may be monitored for an additional night, otherwise you can be discharged on the same day. Your medications will be adjusted and instructions on how to use these medications at home will be taught to you.

It is better to stay in Iran for a week after discharge to avoid a long trip and to easily access the doctor and be examined if you need to. But if you want, you can return home any day you want from the day after the discharge. We will not leave you alone and whenever you have any questions, you can contact us or even have a video call with your doctor through the head of the department. In addition, your ward manager will be in touch with you in the first week after your discharge to ensure your health.
