A trachelectomy, also referred to as a cervicectomy, is the surgical removal of the neck of the uterus also known as the cervix. This procedure can be used to treat early cases of cervical cancer or other specific conditions while preserving a women’s fertility.
A trachelectomy can be performed laparoscopically, abdominally (laparotomy), vaginally, or with the da Vinci robot with recovering ranging anywhere from 2-6 weeks depending upon the way the surgery was performed and the extent of the surgery.

Because a hysterectomy is a major surgery, it is decision serious enough to be made after only after looking at all available options and, in many cases, after having gotten a second opinion.
Many women feel better after their hysterectomy and wish they had done it sooner whereas other women are not as happy with their hysterectomy outcome. Have you had a hysterectomy? What was your experience like?

Adhesions are scar tissue that cause organs to stick to one another or to the wall of the abdomen. The chance of getting an adhesion post-surgery will depend upon several things including type of surgery and whether or not you’ve had prior abdominal surgery.
While many hysterectomy patients feel better than expected post-surgery and want to move around and quickly resume their normal schedule and/or activities, it is so very important that you follow your doctor’s recovery instructions paying close attention to the restrictions about lifting, jumping, running or quick stretching. That not only helps your hysterectomy recovery, but it can also minimize the chance of adhesions forming.
