Polpy removal

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hi, i probably asked this last year , but my op was cancelled then. Has anyone had a polyp removed under general with a hysteroscopy? I'm due to have mine done but dreading it 😕 If you have did you get much bleeding afterwards? How long did it take to recover ? I seem to be paranoid now about bleeding

    Just curious, are you getting a hysterectomy because of a polyp.?  A friend of mine is having a polyp removed without a hysterectomy and can be done in doctors office.

      Oh sorry, I read too fast!  My friend is getting this done.  She has been told she has a polyp, but has been waiting 6 months to see a gynocologist.  Just curious, do you have a lot of issues because of the polyp?  She gets terrible pains during her period and is assuming it is because of the polyp.

      I dont get much pain , main reason for going initially was heavy bleeding . They did scans smear and hysteroscopy to rule everything else out and found this polyp . They said it could contribute to the bleeding

    Hiya

    I had a polyp/fibroid removal during Hysteroscopy a year ago.  I don't like general anaesthetic so I persuaded them to give me a spinal block.  you are awake and need some hours in hospital just for the block to wear off.

    I didn't feel a thing and was discussing it all with the doctors whilst watching the screen!

    There was minimal bleeding bit like the end of a period for a couple of days.  No pain at all.

    Good luck

      I have polyps too. They will not remove them except with a general. I chose not to have them removed; just going to watch them. I believe I've had them for years and the gyn said I probably did. I always had pain and bleeding problems before menopause. Went on the pill to help control it at the time.

      If they start causing problems I'll probably opt for a hysterectomy. Not sure though. If they could remove them without putting you under, I would reconsider.

      I keep bleeding and are already in tablets so that think it could be that. He dwas d say although a previous biopsy was fine they can turn during menopause . He won't do them without a general 😕
