I'm scheduled for a super cervical at the end of this month I am told this is a fairly new procedure and the graphic details have left me feeling a little ill. This a laporoscopic procedure 3 incisions
and everythings then cut up in small pieces to be removed thru the small incision.? Sounds horriffic.
Anybody out there had this done? I've got what appears to be a large fibroid tumer the uterus is at the 4month pregnancy stage.
I understand the recovery is quicker than the abdominal hysterectomy I am not a candidate for the vaginal procedure due to the location of the fibroid.
I admit I'm scared. No guarantee they won't take everything.
They want to decide after having a look. I'm sure this is the usual talk all women are given but I'm not comfortable with the idea.I would also not like the idea of them not taking everything if it did not look good either. It's just the loss of control I guess.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Click search near the top of this page and type the word supracervical where it says: keyword
I just did that, and more threads came up. You'll see the word supracervical in red in the posts that contain that word.
I'm one of the lucky ones that has had this procedure. It was a quick "in and out" of the hospital. I was driving in 5 days...to take my dd to school....and doing some light shopping within a week. I was returned to ALL activities in 3 weeks. I cannot tell you how happy I am that this surgery was available to me. I have had an uneventful recovery and feeling terrific. Good luck to you with your surgery.
I cant drive for two weeks.
I do agree with you........ we are very lucky to be able to have this surgery. I had a heck of a time finding a doctor (who my insurance would cover) who was well skilled with this proceedure.
Meaning did them all the time, instead of one or twice a year.
I say, if a person is a canidate for it........ go for it!
