Laproscopic Hyst???

Having a LAVH is a lot less traumatic on the body & it's amazing how quickly you heal. So much that it's hard remembering to take it easy because of the inside which is slower to heal. It's also less traumatic emotionally not having the scar to remind you of what was done to your body. Good luck.

Laproscopic Hyst???

With the LAVH, your cervix must come out--it is a lap assisted vaginal hyst--the work is done in the abdomen via three small incisions, then the uterus is delivered vaginally. With a TVH, total vaginal hyst, everything is done vaginally, so your cervix is out. (Total hyst of any kind means total uterus and cervix.)

There are some new procedures being performed now that are less envasive and allow you to retain your cervix. The LSH for one--lap supercervical hyst--work done in the abdomen, but the uterus is cut into pieces and pulled out with instruments inserted in the small lap incisions, instead of being delivered vaginally, thus allowing you to keep your cervix. There is also the SVH (subtotal vaginal hyst) or PVH (partial vaginal hyst) performed by only a few specialist where you could retain the cervix. The link below is for the hyst portion of our resource database. You can find information about different types of hysts, and the reasons why you may have one over the other.

Remember, not all drs can perform all types of hysts. Your dr may decide on a specific type of hyst depending on his/her experience, as well as what is best for you. Always seek a 2nd or even 3rd opinion before having any type of major surgery.

Best wishes to you all!

Laproscopic Hyst???

I had an LAVH and had massive adhesions. My MD said this is the safest and easiest way to go with adhesions. He had lots of room to look around and remove all the adhesions.

Any sort of abdominal surgery increases the risk of more adhesions forming. The less invasive, the better.
