Upcoming hysterectomy 3/14: daVinci question being overweight and have had several abdominal surgeries. Thoughts?

My doctor has decided that I should have the da vinci hysterectomy. I was ok with this less invasive quicker recovery. Now, I've been reading up on it and I'm not so sure, I read that if you've had several abdominal surgeries that it might not be a good option, also if you have a High BMI. I have had 5 major abdominal surgeries and am obese. Am I just looking at this too much?

Hi Littlelucy -

Sometimes you can do too much research on the Internet and confuse the issue. Remember that the Internet is not always right, and sometimes it is downright wrong or misleading. It speaks in generalities, and probably does not address your particular situation. In other words, take it with a grain of salt.

As long as your doctor has seen you, and knows your medical history, he or she is the best person to determine what type of surgery you should have. Speak to your doctor about your concerns so they can be addressed.

Here is some information on:Special Considerations for Overweight Hysterectomy Patients.
