Re: What is the difference???

I am pretty sure that LSH means that you keep your cervix, and TLH (total lap. Hyst) means that you don't. The s in LSH means supercervical, meaning that they leave the cervix. There are definitions of hysterectomy options under the info tab at top of this website. Hope that helps-

Yep, LSH is Laparoscopic Supracervical Hysterectomy meaning only the upper portion of the uterus is removed via lap incisions.

TLH is Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy meaning the total uterus with cervix will be removed through lap incisions.
