Total Laproscopic hyst

Went to the doc's today and am now preparing for a total laproscopic hyst including cervix due to suspected adenomyosis. I had the choice of removing the cervix and decided to go ahead and have it out. My decision is based on 2 primary concerns. 1) The risk of periods post hyst. If I am going to have this done, I want to be sure that I never need another tampon or pad. 2)I am concerned that a supracervical hyst could lead to endometriosis later. It was my understanding from the doc that they don't close up what is left of the uterus but instead cover it with the peritoneum. To me that feels risky. Luckily I don't seem to have any prolaspe so with luck it should be straight forward. I am to call tomorrow to schedule the hyst and the preop.
I thought it was rather funny when doc gave me my options (BCPs not a candidate due to age and smoking), ablation (says usually not permanent in women my age 35) or laproscopic hyst. The part I thought was funny was my reaction to the news of the hyst. I have felt ready to have this done for a long time now as I am sick and tired of the pain and bleeding. When he said those words, at first I felt fear and a host of other emotions none of which were happiness. As I got dressed to go discuss it in detail, I calmed down a bit and felt relieved that this should end my problems and that it shouldn't be to difficult for the doc since there are no fibroids. I asked many questions of his female associate who was discussing this with me. One question as we discussed the option of removing the cervix was if it were you what would you do. I asked this not for her to make the descision for me but more to get a feel for any personal attitudes toward removing it and honesty. Her answer was that she would remove it to guarantee never having another period. She said that I asked many good questions (thanks to this site!!) and gave me straight up answers. If she didn't know, she told me so instead of making up something. I like that.

If anyone is in the Houston area and is interested in a good doctor who is experienced in total laproscopic hysts let me know. All of your testing can be done right there and most the same day including ultrasounds. I am pleased with the doc and his associate and will stick with them unless my insurance changes.

Total Laproscopic hyst

Hello there. I am not in the Houston area (close, Dallas). I had a LATVH on the 12th and am doing very well.

I know that I will be very happy end the end choosing to finally have the hysto. I am almost 31 years old and so ready to be out of pain. My hysto was a result of Endo.

Happy to see you here!

Howdy neighbor!

My sister has endo so to the extent possible I can appreciate the pain you have had. Hope your recovery is going well and that it is the end of pain for you.

From what I understood on wed at the docs, mine will be totally laproscopic even though the cervix is going too. It will be done at Texas Women's hospital in the medical center. My only concern about the lap procedure is the fact that I had my tubes tied laproscopically 7 years ago and they will be going in through the same spot. Doc wasn't concerned so I guess it will be fine.

Congratulations on being on the other side.
