Awaiting hysterectomy due to years of abnormal smears.

Posted , 9 users are following.

Hi all ,

Ive been following this site for a few weeks and have found it very helpful .Im due to have a hysterectomy due to 10 years of abnormal smears , i have an appointment with my consultant on Tuesday to decided what type of hysterectomy im having after she has seen my results from an internal scan i had , im hoping for keyhole as reading all the posts on here seems the better recovery but it all depends on what the scan results are ,I was just wondering if any of you ladies had internal scan first before they decided on what hysterectomy they gave you.

Thanks for taking the time to read my post

    Hi Jackie. 

    I had an internal scan and was then diagnosed with adenomyosis.  At my consultation my surgeon said she would do abdominal surgery due to size of my uterus and the fact she was removing everything. That was 3 weeks ago and I am healing well. 

    Let us know how you get on

    I had internal scan before as I was post menopausal and I was having bleeds they found cancer so they decided to do a hysterectomy which luckily they could do by keyhole I'm now 8 weeks post op and going back to work as a courier Tuesday the 5th of May and because I had cancer which has all been removed I have to have check ups every four months for at least two years .hope you get keyhole but they won't know usually til they open you up and put the camera in

      Hi lyn I really hope I get key hole as I dont want to be of work too long and the thought of not been active for 6 weeks plus worries me. But I have to think of my health im having my ovaries out too so instant menopause and I can't take hrt due to breast cancer in my family. Cant say im looking forward to it but to not have anymore worries regarding my smears and results after 10 years will be a relief. Hope your return to work goes well.

    Hi. Depending on your age even with history of breast cancer in family I was told could still have hrt as replacing what should have anyway but reduce down at normal menopause age but if ovaries are fine they should keep them in. I'm having whole lot gone on 6th all via lap and also have tilted womb. I had investigatory op as well as scans first. I have smears every year as abnormal results but I'm not sure if cervix is going for definite but I'm sure it will be. Good luck with appointment. Write all questions down as if you're like me you'll forget when you in there.

      Hi

      my mum had breast cancer. I am on HRT but told I had to give up at age 55. I am willing to take risk. I feel great on HRT. 

      My cervix is away as well as ovaries. No more smear tests. Yay

      Hi we seem to be in a similar situation . I was told at my last meeting because both my sisters had breast cancer last year I will have my ovaries out and be able to take hrt. But I will ask about lower dosage see what she says . She did say everything will be taken cervix as well. Hope all goes well on the 6th be nice to hear how it goes and your recovery too .

      All the best jackie x

    Hi Jakie

    Welcome to the forum, you will find it really helpfull. I had 2 internal scans to determine the size of my fibroids, it really is nothing to worry about and they are painless. I had an abdominal hysterectomy on 9th april had 3 nights in hospital and I am rcovering well at home now.

    Keep us updated with your treatments and all the best for your scan.
