Laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy: LSH complications

Ladies... maybe some of these problems are not related to the surgery but is related to each of our bodies. L had the same surgery 2 mos. ago and I am still recuperating but without any real complications, however, I have recently experienced some discharge that is clear and today there was pink tinge on the toilet tissue when I went to the bathroom I am going to ask my GP about this and see what she says. I will let you ladies know what she says

Laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy: LSH complications

Me too. I had one in July of 07 and I haven't beent he same either. My tummy is a size bigger and it makes crazy noises too. I have a lot of gas (like a man now) and my bowels are a little different too. It is a lot better than it was right after surgery. But I feel bloated all the time and my stomach cramps alot.
I think that it is adhesions and I am doing to pursue it beginning next month.

Laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy: LSH complications

Hi,
I had a LSH in May of 2007. I have what the doctors call mini periods every month. This is because I still have my cervix. The doctors said that all the uterine tissue was not all removed during surgery in which case you will have mini periods. Which are harmless. It is a small percentage that this happens but for those of us who thought periods were over it stinks. I am having surgery on Feb. 26th to remove my cervix. My cervix is extremely painful to touch and the doctors think my right ovary has fallen and attached itself to my cervix. AHH. It is also laying on my bladder. Adhesions are also going to be fixed.
Good Luck with the doc

LSH complications

I had an attempted LSH 2 years ago. It turned out being a 5 hour surgery that turned into an abdominal hysterectomy because my bladder was attached up near my bellybutton. I had adhessions throughout they says because of the 3 sections I had. My bladder ended up being cut and I ended up having to take a bladder bag home with me for a week afterwards. I am still dealing with emotional issues from this surgery and have just had to have a bladder suspension about 2 weeks ago. I have had many hormonal issues since that has started from migraines after my hysterectomy my vision changing dramatically and extreme dryness in my eyes, plus the migrane triggers coming from my eyes. I have had more HRT changes than anyone I know. I have been to a neuroopthamologist who confirmed that the migraines, hormones etc. were related. When I saw my OB/Gyn this past week he basically told me I was just getting old and it had nothing to do with my hormones, just my anxiety. It has taken 2 years to balance my hormones eye issues and all the other things I never had before and now I am told I am just getting old. I felt very depressed about this because it made me feel like I created all of these problems on my own. I want to move past all of this but I can't seem to and I thought this might be a good place to start. This is my first time on the web page Thanks for any support Janey1

Laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy: LSH complications

Hi Janey1. Wow. You've been through the ringer. Question. Why the hysterectomy? I am curious as to why because you said that you thought this all may have been created by you. I too have struggled with this. I had a few options other than hysterectomy. But I had a doctor that pushed LSH and told me it would be the answer to all my probems. But for me, it only caused more problems and extreme pain. I kick myself for not trying other less invasive procedures first. Who knows, it could of worked.
Your operation sounds like it was scarey. Five hours. And your bladder issues sound horrible. Are you alright now? My bladder hurts constantly. I am so afraid of what they will find when they open me up. I am just praying that it will all the least of what they are telling me.

Laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy: LSH complications

I was bleeding all the time and had very strange pains which I now realize are because everything was attached together. We tried every pill to make it stop and it wouldn't. I feel like since it has been two years I want to move on but every time I try my body throws something else weird to me. I tell people if hormones made feet big I would have the biggest feet in town. At least my hair hasn't fallen out.

Laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy: LSH complications

I also haven taken so much medicine to control the pain. I have started getting a massage every week to try and help me unstress. I am really scared that the dr is going to take both of my ovaries. If so any advice about taking hormones?

Laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy: LSH complications

Yes they did take my ovaries because of adhesions. I had 3 c-sections. I had a difficult pregnancy and they had to do a c-section and daughter number 2 had a large head and sunnyside up. Hormones have been very difficult to get a handle on. One thing that has been fortunate is my primary care doctor. She has helped me through everything, my depression, anxiety, every change that has come up. I have had to change the hormone levels many times. Family members have told me I have changed. It is totally weird. I am feeling somewhat balanced now. But I did develop migraines afterwards and vision issues which I am still trying to control. It is a challenge all the time. That is why I decided to come to this website, for guidance.

Laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy: LSH complications

i have had a lap for adhesions before and the dr. that did it, did not do my hysterectomy. He referred to this surgeon. Now, both of them feel that I should be fine and I am not. Maybe, drs. don't want to do surgery on the same patient twice. I am also thinking that a general surgeon or someone else would be better anyway. If I now have adhesions on my bowels, it shouldn't be done by a GYN anyway. What do u guys think? Any advice is good.
