Re: Hysteroscopy D&C endometrial amblation???

I had hysteroscopy, laparoscopy and endometrial ablation in July for chronic bleeding and pelvic pain. I have bled almost continuously for over two years, including all the way through a high risk pregnancy. For me, the procedures themselves were not bad at all. Done in an outpatient surgery center and was home with a few hours. My doc had told me that there was only small chance that my issues would resolve (we knew all along I'd need the hysterectomy, but i wanted to try all other options first). I had the surgery on a Thursday and was back to work on Monday. Over the weekend, i did have pretty significant pain in my shoulder and under my ribs from the gases used for the laparoscopy. But you won't need to worry about that. I did end up with a bad post operative infection and ended up spending five days in the hospital on iv antibiotics. That is extremely rare - my doc has been doing this procedure for 20 years and I was the first one to be hospitalized. I'm not sharing it to scare you, but more to make you aware that you really need to listen to your body even when having a seemingly minor procedure. If i had not held out on going back to the doc, i probably would have avoided the hospitalization. For me, the procedur didn't work due to adenomyosis and i ended up with LAVH eight days ago. All that being said, i would do it again in a heartbeat because at least i tried all of my options. Best of luck to you with your procedure!
