Fallopian Tube Prolapse???

Hi everyone....
I had a TAH in Sept. 2005, and I truly thought things were getting better...I mean I had the surgery 6 months ago! I had to see the doc 2 weeks ago for what he thought was granulation tissue and he burned it off with silver nitrate. I just went back Fri. for a follow up and low and behold its back, and he burned it off again. He now thinks that my fallopian tube has prolaspsed and healed in my vaginal cuff. He is sending all tissues to lab to be tested and I have to go back in 2 more weeks for follow up once again. Has anyone had Fallopian tube prolapse, and what do they do for it? My doc was telling me that I may have to go back to the hospital for a procedure that he said is quite painful.

Fallopian Tube Prolapse???

I'm sorry to hear that you may be looking at additonal surgery. I don't have any experience with a fallopian tube prolapse, but did find this thread that has some information Fallopian Tube Prolapse

Additionally, here is an article from the Resources section Fallopian Tube Prolapse after Hysterectomy

Fallopian Tube Prolapse???

I had something called a hydrosalpinx that was actually not found until 4 years after my vaginal hyst during my vaginal vault prolapse surgery. It was trapped in adhesions and was probably found at adhesiolysis surgery I had in 2002, but so encased in adhesions it couldn't be pulled out and was never mentioned to me as well as not mentioned in the op report? My urogyn was able to get it out so go figure. From what the urogyn told me that, along with the adhesions, was causing my pain. I am not sure a hydrosalpinx is the same thing as a prolapsed fallopian tube though.

Hydrosalpinx Post Hysterectomy Complication

I just had surgery on March 16th for a left hydrosalpinx. My hysterectomy (just took the uterus and left the cervix and adnexa) was in May 2005, but in January of this year, I noticed pain and an expanding belly. The bimanual exam hurt, the ultrasound hurt--and seemed to show an ovarian cystadenoma. I had an MRI and they did a CA125 (normal range) but the MRI and the U/S seemed to suggest a cyst. This was really weird, because in 1984, I had had an ovarian cystadenoma removed along with a portion of the left ovary. So, I was wondering how it recurred nearly 22 years later...Well, during surgery, my gyn discovered what seemed to be hydrosalpinx not cyst. It was around the size of a big orange, I guess, 8-9 cm. Anyway, this was so big and encompassing the left ovary, that he removed that, as well. So, now I have my right ovary and my right fallopian tube (I hope no hydrosalpinx develops there) and my cervix left. The one good thing is that I had the gyn cut out all my old scars (that 1984 cyst removal, the 2005 hysterectomy, and 2 C-sections) so now I only have one long incision (19 staples) but man, there was a lot of pain this time. The doctor said it was probably because the incision site was all new, so the nerve endings were fresh. It is itching like mad these days and the internal discomfort is still pretty strong. It is interesting to see that when women leave the adnexa (ovaries/tubes) in (hysterectomy) that there is the possibility of hydrosalpinx. It makes me wonder if maybe they shouldn't cut out the fallopian tubes and just leave ovaries. Yes, it's possible that the hydrosalpinx comes from a previous infection (that's usually what the cause is for younger women who have infertility problems) but post hysterectomy there seems to be a different pathology at work that causes it. They usually occur closer to the ovary end of the fallopian tube, sometimes creating the need to remove the ovary, too (like in my case). When I did a search on google, I had to put in something like "hydrosalpinx post hysterectomy" to come up with those links, otherwise, they were all about infertility related diagnoses. I am glad it was not the cyst, because the hydrosalpinx is a totally benign process--but! BUT it was still quite painful at times, so I am thankful to have it gone. Just wish it hadn't happened in the first place. At least I will be able to zip my pants more easily now! :^)
