There is big one and 3 small ones. Mainly we want to remove the uterous. Heavy bleeding during and after menses. No family and does not intend to have one. We want to choose between LHS and Abdomen hysterectomy. Please advise which is better? We ideally want LHS as it is less painful and easier post recovery process. ids there a good hospital you can suggest us in Bangalore?

Hi,
Yes, it is true that laparoscopic hysterectomy will have less pain and short postoperative recovery period.
So she can go for laparoscopic hysterectomy unless uterus is of very big size.
Below link gives list of gynecological hospitals in Bangalore, you can choose according to your priority.

I recently had a swollen and hurting breast. I also had a discharge of a milky brown liquid which had blood in it. The swelling & hurting is gone, but I still have a bloody discharge from the breast. I ve had fibroids in my breast for years. Can it be the fibroids bleeding? I had uterian fibroids for which I have a hysterectomy and removed over 10 years ago.

I am 56 and have had scyatic pain and lower groin pain and pain on my left side at my waist in the back. I have all my female parts, (till two days from now) I went to Family Dr with symptoms. Oh yeah I am post menopausal also. He sent me for X rays, and an MRi. I have deteriorating arthritis/ The pain is more intense than childbirth (with no pain meds, I had for deliveries) . I asked him about fibroids because a year earlier while in the hospital with kidney stones, they found a fibroid that measured about a 4cm. could it be growing? he said prob not because I m post menopause and they usually don t grow then. At this time I was into my 3rd month of pain with no help yet. My FP said we can have a CT scan with contrast, which I did, It showed that the fibroid had grown to 5cm. So he sent me to GYN and he gave me several options , and because of other health issues I decided that the first two were to risky and have decided to have the hysterectomy, in a couple days. No one can tell me is the fibroid is causing the severe pain I am having so I have no idea if this is going to help my main concern. *the pain* . All of this brings me to several questions. Is this thing really growing or did someone just miss measure? (I have never been diagnosed wih fibroids before.. If it ( hyste) dosen t work will it cause me any other problems that I don t need. This pain has been at a pain level of 8 to 10 for 6 months now. pain meds aren t really touching it and I ve tried a steriod shot, steriod pack, muscle relaxer and pain pils (norco 7.5) do you have any comments?

Hello, I had a complete hysterectomy in December of 2012. Since then, I have had severe foot pain with sharp shooting pain in my feet and toes along with extreme soreness in the foot joints, pain in my legs and in my groin, as well as stinging sensations along the incision site in my abdomen. The incision is healed but still purple, swollen, and numb in areas. At times I can hardly walk and I had a fairly active lifestyle before hand. The doctors I speak to seem perplexed and claim that the surgery would not have caused this but I didn t have the problem before. I had the uterus removed, tubes and ovaries, and pre cancerous cervical cells, fibroids, endometriosis, cysts and tumors. The endometriosis had caused scar tissues that had to be scraped from my bladder. I am 53 and I was never able to become pregnant or have children. I love not having to deal with the periods and hormone related pain and migraines, but I m not sure I like the trade off either- I am on low dose estradiol and I use a vaginal cream 2x week because the pain having sex was tremendous! Any thoughts as to what this might be? I don t feel like myself anymore.

This past January , my OB-GYN told me I should have a hysterectomy because I have fibroids. Could this be the pain I m feeling now?
