Fibroid surgery in India
Fibroid surgery in India is taking all strides to be updated in most advanced technologies like the minimally invasive technologies. Hysterectomy is removing part of or the entire uterus is the most drastic surgery to permanently remove fibroids. There is much to consider when making a decision to have a fibroid surgery and a lot of patient’s ultimate choice depends upon the severity of the fibroids. Among the various categories of patients needing fibroid surgery are women with very heavy bleeding, or with pelvic pain or pressure, or urinary frequency or incontinence that interfere with quality of life, severe anemia from heavy bleeding or blockage of the ureters from very large fibroids. Many advances have been made in the surgical options to treat fibroids lik4 abdominal myomectomy for even large fibroids, uterine artery occlusion, endometrial ablation, laparoscopic myomectomy, hysteroscopic myomectomy and abdominal, vaginal and laparoscopic hysterectomy. Fibroid surgery is done if a patient has heavy bleeding that is persistent and causes severe anemia.
Severity of Fibroids - Kidney Damage:
Very rarely, fibroids may grow abnormally and press against the ureters, slowing or stopping the flow of urine out of the kidney. If urine cannot flow freely from the kidney, pressure builds up in the kidney and damages the kidney. This process is slow and usually shows no symptoms. If a patient is being closely followed by a physician, it is very unlikely that any damage will occur to the kidneys. On examination, a doctor can feel if the fibroids are too near the ureters. Some action would then be advised, before the slow process of damage to the kidneys begins.
Fibroid surgery in India
Pre Treatment for Fibroids can be one of the various types like hysterectomy, myomectomy and so on. Fibroid treatment in India can be detailed in following sub heads:
Hysterectomy surgery can be done through the vaginal opening or the abdomin and recovery time will be dependent upon which way you go. It is said that recovery time for a vaginal hysterectomy can be a few weeks but for an abdominal hysterectomy it can take twice as long, maybe up to a couple months. After the hysterectomy, patient must try to remain as sedentary as possible and absolutely “no heavy lifting.” Patient may also be required to eat special foods and take certain vitamin and mineral supplements. Most importantly, a hysterecotomy will surely bring the end of childbearing and it is known to bring on early menopause.
The myomectomy is surgically similar to a hysterectomy but it is basically for removing those “easy to get to” fibroids. Typically this surgery is done via the abdomin and the uterus wall is recontructed after removal of the fibroids. One advantage over the hysterectomy is that patient can continue with childbearing however, patient may redevelop fibroids in the future. If this is the case, patient will once again have to have surgery. Patient also needs to understand that there is a possibility some fibroids will be missed during the myomectomy and they will continue to grow. The recovery time is commonly around four weeks if done through the abdomin but if done through the vagina you will be looking at just a few hours.
Uterine Fibroid Embolization
Also known as uterine artery embolization, uterine fibroid embolization is so much less invasive and desirable than the hysterectomy and myomectomy. Basically a catheter is placed inside the artery that is supplying the fibroid and blocks off the blood flow. With little to no blood supplying the fibroid, it will shrink in size. Since this is less intensive than the hysterecotomy and myomctomy surgery, the required recovery time is only around a week. Usually only an overnight stay at the hospital is required.
With focused ultrasound you combine the use of an MRI and ultrasound waves. As individuals, the MRI and ultrasound have been around for a long time and recently they have been combined to help treat fibroids. The 3-dimensional viewing capabilities that come with the MRI give the surgeon a better view of the fibroids and the uterus and the intense ultrasound sound waves can be used with pin-point accuracy to heat up and kill off the fibroids cells. This treatment technique is typically outpatient type and recovery time is a few hours.
Last Resort - Fibroids Surgery
You should now have an understanding of the various methods of fibroids surgery and what is to be expected with each. The statistics show that 25% of all women between the ages of 30-50 years suffer with fibroids so it is quite common. But don’t think that surgery is the only way to treat uterine fibroids. Surgery should be of a last resort. There are natural techniques and methods that are proven to work and they may just work for you. They are definitely worth a try when you consider the end results of surgery.
