It’s also important to think about the long term effects after your hysterectomy surgery is complete. Some of the things to consider are pain management, recovery time, possible complications and surgical scars.
As with any surgery, however, complications can occur such as:
- Fever and infection
- Heavy bleeding during or after surgery
- Injury to the urinary tract or nearby organs
- Blood clots in the leg that can travel to the lungs
- Breathing or heart problems related to anesthesia
Talk to your doctor about which type of the hysterectomy surgeries is right for you.
