Laparoscopic vs abdominal hysterectomy w/ bladder repair

I met with my dr today and was given a couple of options. If all I needed to do was have a hysterectomy, then I'd do the laparoscopic procedure. But after twins and another child, my bladder needs lifting.
He described different things he could do for my bladder depending on which hysterectomy he did.
Any suggestions?? I already have one ovary out so I plan to leave the other one. My uterus is higher up so he said I'm not a good candidate for a vaginal hysterectomy.
Thank you!!

Re: Laparoscopic vs abdominal hysterectomy w/ bladder repair

Did your doctor give you the pros and cons of each type as well as explain what would be best for your bladder?Is a urologist going to be present at surgery for the bladder repairs? many sisters post on here that a urology surgeon does the bladder repair part.A leaky bladder is something you should want to fix the best way possible.Once you get the hysterectomy you won't have periods anymore, so you definitely don't want to deal with leaky urine for the rest of your life! What's your diagnosis as far as hysterectomy goes? I had adenomyosis and fibroids and my heavy uterus was sitting on my bladder. I had 3 kids too and always thought that was to blame for my leaky urine. My doctor told me it was my heavy uterus and would be gone after surgery so she didn't do a bladder lift. I am happy to say I can sneeze now and no leaks so far ( 6 weeks post op)
