Partial Hysterectomy

Posted by april_35 (My Page) on

I have been having problems for 10 months. I am 35 years old and considered myself to be pretty healthy until this last year...Started with right side pain and bloating, after numerous test they decided to take out my gallbladder. That was not the problem....4 months later was bleeding from the naval and they told me I had a tumor in my appendix and a Uryichal Cyst that had ruptured. I am now 9 weeks post op and still have the same right pain and pressure on my bladder...A couple of days before my period i swell like i'm 8 months preg. After more test they found that I have 5 Fibroid tumors with the largest being on the right side...Could this be my problem for the last 10 months?? Bloating,some heavy bleeding,pressure and pain and bladder frequency. Now they want to do a partial Hysterectomy laporascopically sp? which means i would have to have a biopsy of the uterus in the office...I heard that it is very painful and to be honest I have been through enough....Can anybody tell me if they had to have a biopsy first and if so...How bad was it? Also do my symptoms sound like any you had before your surgery? I dont think I can endure another surgery that will not fix my problem!! Thank you for any information you can give me! :)

RE: Partial Hysterectomy

I'm so sorry, it sounds overwhelming.

It seems that this forum is very slow-moving, but gardenweb's Kitchen Table Forum is quite active.

It's almost entirely women, & they have a wealth of experience.

I wish you the best.

RE: Partial Hysterectomy

Oooh, I feel for you. I can't give you advice on this, but I agree with Sylvia that this forum is sometimes slow with responses to such a specific problem and she is right on with the Kitchen Table Forum. There is a wealth of info there and they always have a chair open to join them!

Good luck with your health issues, I went through similar problems in which they also took out my gallbladder (which, like you, wasn't the problem) but mine turned out to be thyroid and stomach issues rolled into one. I felt like a lab rat at the end of the first two years of testing and know how frustrating it can be. Let us know if you get any news.

RE: Partial Hysterectomy

Frankly, I think you should see another doctor. I can't imagine one that is worth anything missing the fibroids.

A partial hysterectomy is a waste of time. You will be left with a cervix that could develop inflamations and cervical cancer. Why not just have a complete hysterectomy and get rid of the whole thing!!!

I hope that you understand that a complete hysterectomy DOES NOT include removal of the ovaries.
