Re: DA Vinci hysterectomy

I'm having it done on July 8th...I had ovarian cysts removed via da vinci last year and it was so much better than I thought it would be!

Surgery is always scary, but this is the most minimally invasive way to have the procedure!

What have you been told about it so far?

I'm scheduled for the DaVinci surgery on August 16th. I would like to also hear from member's experiences.

Re: DA Vinci hysterectomy

I'm having a da Vinci on July 7th. I've heard nothing but good things about it, except the fact that most insurance companies don't cover the extra expense that comes with robotic surgery. My doctor's office is good about setting up payment plans with their patients. It's the only way I would be able to do it.

Best wishes for your big event!

Re: DA Vinci hysterectomy

Jettaway, when they did da Vinci for your cysts, were they complex ovarian cysts? Just curious. That's what I have.

Re: DA Vinci hysterectomy

I had a Da Vinci hysterectomy on the 10th. My doctor did a beautiful job! The incisions are so tiny, and I had almost no vaginal bleeding. I'm healing very well and my recovery pain is much easier to deal with than my endometriosis pain was. I am definitely extremely glad I got it!

Re: DA Vinci hysterectomy

All I was told was that I had multiple cysts, one was so big it had one of my ovaries almost completely surrounded... turned out there were like 6 or so ranging from nickle size to grapefruit size...hope this helps

Re: DA Vinci hysterectomy

Sorry to bother you, Tamara, but do you remember if the cysts were "simple" or "complex"? My hysterectomy is being done because of a plum-sized "complex" cyst, which is more concerning than a "simple" one. I'm trying to reassure myself by the fact that yours were benign.
