The Impact Of Postoperative Removal Of The Uterus And Ovaries?
Hello, good afternoon, I am Citra, 47 years old, I have 3 children who are already big … a month ago I underwent myoma surgery (size 10.5 x 8 cm) with medical treatment in the form of removing the uterus and ovaries. The doctor’s consideration was that I already had children, the age I could not get pregnant again and avoid growing back. Diagnosis of myoma approximately 3 years from the MCU, initial size (5 x 3 cm), no symptoms, no pain and normal menstruation (5 – 7 days). At the time of the last menstrual period, it was 2 weeks longer with menstrual blood that came out a little and the color was reddish / blackish brown. It is also possible to remove the ovaries by the doctor to avoid the growth of cysts … and when the operation was seen, the ovaries were ‘dry’ so it was decided to remove them too. Based on the condition where I have removed the uterus and ovaries at this time, what is the impact on my health as well as treatment and prevention, what should I do … Mhn a more detailed explanation from the doctor regarding my condition. R n r nThank you yes, for the consultation time.
Hello Mrs. Citra
Thank you for using HealthReplies.com consulting services
I understand the worry you have. Surgical removal of the uterus and its ovaries is also called a hysterectomy. The possibility of a hysterectomy that has been done on you can also be called a total hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, because the entire uterus along with the ovaries and possibly the fallopian tubes are removed during the operation.
The medical considerations that your doctor recommends are indeed quite good, considering the age of the mother who has entered 47 years, at which age it is not recommended to get pregnant again, as well as the possibility of recurring cysts.
The impact of surgical removal of the uterus and ovaries is actually not too dangerous for health. However, some things that might have an effect in the future include:
Postoperative infections Decrease in the hormone estrogen which can increase the risk of osteoporosis. It should be noted that the hormone estrogen is quite important for bone regulation, so the absence of this hormone makes a person prone to calcification of the bones Menopause faster No menstruation at all / amenorrhoea Mood / emotional instability Decreased libido You don't need to worry, because some of the things above can be handled in several ways. following rare:
Consumption of healthy and nutritious foods. Consumption of foods and drinks that are high in calcium. Regular exercise. Adequate rest. Avoid stress and fatigue. Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption. Try to always adopt a healthy lifestyle, so that the quality of life remains good. If there is a disturbing complaint, do not hesitate to consult and check with your nearest doctor. That is the information that I can convey, hope it helps
