Hysteroscopic Polypectomy is the removal of polyps from the uterus. The surgical procedure of Hysteroscopic Polypectomy removes uterine polyps, keeping the uterus intact. The size of a polyp varies from a few millimetres to many centimetres. Usually, the polyps grow within the wall of the uterine cavity. In some cases, the polyps may slip down into the opening of the uterus in the vagina.
So far, no studies have been able to define the actual cause of polyps, but it is examined and found that they grow when there is an imbalance of estrogen hormones in the female bodies.
The recovery time of Hysteroscopic Polypectomy depends upon the type of surgical procedure selected by patients. The symptoms of Hysteroscopic Polypectomy are usually bleeding or spotting and cramping, but these vary from patient to patient, depending upon the her health condition. Only after consulting with the patient, the doctor decides whether a Hysteroscopic Polyectomy surgery is required or not. If yes, the patient has to go through a preparation routine before the surgery.
The question how to perform Hysterescopic Polyectomy is answered here. In many hospitals, doctors prefer to do an ultrasound scanning before performing hysterescopy. Depending upon the health condition and choice of the surgery of patients, the type of anaesthesia is decided. The procedures that follow are:
If the patient undergoes local anaesthesia, she is discharged after a short rest. She should feel comfortable and painless to walk around or travel in train or bus. If sedatives are administered during the surgery, then the patient should have a friend or relative to drive her home.
On the other hand, in case of general anaesthesia, the patient may have to stay at least 24 hours after the surgery until the effects of anaesthesia have passed. She must have someone to drive her home.
Within few days of the surgery, patients may experience mild bleeding or period-like cramps. It is suggested to use sanitary towels instead of taking tampons. Full recovery of Hysterescopic Polyecyomy takes a couple of weeks or more.
