TLH ? Anyone got any info on this type of Hysterectomy?

Hi everyone! I was just wondering if anyone had any experience or info with a Total Lap. Hysterectomy? I read that it would require a very experienced surgeon and that it's not done at every hospital...Thanks in advance for your answers! Annette.

TLH ? Anyone got any info on this type of Hysterectomy?

Hi Annette,

I had a LSH, a variation on the TLH. I agree that it is a good idea to find an experienced laparoscopic surgeon for the surgery. Reason being is that the surgery type has not been around as long as other hyst types and a laparoscopic hyst requires more medical training.

Here is a Hyster Sisters link that goes over the ~different types~ of hysts. The TLH is mentioned at the end of the section on the LAVH surgery. Also, the link includes questions to ask your Dr. in pre-op.

Best wishes,

My surgeon is a skilled laparascopic surgeon (trains others) and he CAN do a total hyst via lap. He said it takes additional time to disconnect the ligaments (or whatever) connecting the cervix to other body parts, but he can and does do it.

Other than that, I am afraid I can't help. My uterus is too large and pelvis too small to remove with lap, so I get the big incision.

Good luck!
