Welcome to hystersisters

Hi there Helen


I would like to welcome you to hystersisters. You have come to an awesome place for support and information.

TAH= a Total Abdominal Hysterectomy. This is the removel of the uterus and cervix made with an incision in the abdomen. The incision can be Virtical or horizontal.

TVH= Total Vaginal Hysterextomy. This is the removel same as the TAH but done vaginally

LAVH =(aproscopic assisted Vaginal hysterectomy. This is a vaginal hyster with I believe 4 small incisions made

here is a link to all the Abbreviations used here. http://www.hystersisters.com/vb2/ann...p?s=&forumid=3

As for finding the right Dr. Your GP more than likely can give you referrals to the right ob/gyn you need.


Take care. I hope this helps
Michele
