In general, it’s best to preserve healthy tissue and avoid surgery whenever possible. But in some cases, a hysterectomy to remove your uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and/or cervix is necessary for your health.

Your doctor could recommend a partial or total hysterectomy if you have:

  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Uterine prolapse
  • Chronic pelvic pain
  • Abnormal vaginal bleeding
  • Thickening of the uterus (adenomyosis)
  • A hysterectomy might also be necessary if you have cancer in one or more of your reproductive organs.

The team at Lake OB-GYN Associates of Mid-Florida, LLC provides compassionate and comprehensive care from your preoperative visits all the way through your postoperative stages and beyond.

Your provider might recommend a minimally invasive laparoscopic or robotic procedure, a vaginal hysterectomy, or a traditional open hysterectomy, depending on your diagnosis.

In any case, a hysterectomy is almost always performed under general anesthesia. Your practitioner removes your pelvic organs either through your vaginal canal or through incisions in your lower pelvic area.

Once your hysterectomy is complete, your surgeon closes the incisions with sutures or staples. You might need to spend 1-3 nights in the hospital, especially if you needed an open surgery hysterectomy.

Lake OB-GYN Associates of Mid-Florida, LLC providers generally recommend taking it easy and staying home from work for at least 1-2 weeks after your hysterectomy. You can gradually start returning to some of your daily activities as long as they’re not causing you pain or discomfort.

Typically, a full recovery from a hysterectomy takes 6-8 weeks. But if you needed a traditional open hysterectomy, your recovery could take longer because of the longer incision and thus, more disruption of soft tissues.

It’s important to note that if you needed to have your ovaries removed, your Lake OB-GYN Associates of Mid-Florida, LLC doctor is likely going to get you started on hormone replacement therapy right away since you’re going to immediately enter menopause.

LINDSEY H.

Dr. Lee and Dr. Britt are by far best the gynecologists in Central Florida. They always make me feel welcome and it’s wonderful to see the same doctors for over 10 years. The Leesburg office is in dire need of some updating and I wished there was more hand sanitizer readily available, but that has nothing to do with the outstanding care that Dr. Lee and Dr. Britt give.
