Your doctor will perform a thorough physical exam to evaluate your overall health and check for medical conditions that may affect your surgery. The healthcare professional will take your medical history and the medicines you are currently consuming.
You may need to undergo several lab tests, including a complete blood count (CBC), blood chemistries and urine analysis. These tests help your doctor determine if you have any underlying medical conditions that may increase the risk of complications during surgery.
Your doctor may order imaging studies such as an ultrasound, MRI or CT scan to evaluate the size, location and shape of your uterus and ovaries. This information helps your doctor plan the surgical approach and determine the best treatment course.
The duration of a laparoscopic hysterectomy procedure depends on the complexity. But generally, it takes between one to three hours to complete.
Recovery time after laparoscopic hysterectomy is faster than traditional open surgery, with most women able to return to normal activities within two to four weeks.
It is normal to experience pain and discomfort after a laparoscopic hysterectomy. However, the pain is usually manageable with medication. It tends to be less severe than after traditional open surgery.
Some potential risks and complications associated with laparoscopic hysterectomies include bleeding, infection, damage to surrounding organs and anaesthesia-related complications. These risks are relatively low, and most women recover without complications.
