    How to prepare for a planned hysterectomy

    A hysterectomy is usually the last resort in cases where there is trouble with the womb. It is an extreme measure that means the woman will have to forfeit her ability to have children, but with serious problems it can be the only way to stop pain and ongoing issues which may affect the woman’s quality of life, or even be life threatening. If you have to go through a hysterectomy there are a few things you can do to make the surgery go easier on you, and ensure that you recover more quickly.

    Discuss your options

    Go to your doctor and see what all of your options are before agreeing to surgery. There are other ways to deal with many problems with the womb, and they don’t all require removing it altogether. You may also want to talk about having some eggs frozen so that you have options for having children down the line.

    Discuss medications

    You will need to take medication often both before and after your surgery, so talk these options through with your doctor to decide which will work best for you, and find out how they are likely to affect you.

    Find out how your surgery will affect you

    Your body will likely go through a number of changes after a hysterectomy, and you will want to be prepared for these in advance. Ask your doctor about these, and do your own research as well.

    Plan for your stay in hospital and recovery time

    Make sure that everything is prepared in advance so you are able to focus on getting better after your surgery.

    Finding solicitors in Isle of Lewis after surgery complications

    Surgery complications aren’t particularly common, and are not something that you should be worrying about when you go for a hysterectomy. Doctors performing this type of surgery are well trained and will be able to perform the surgery without fear of injury or further problems.

    However, if you feel that your doctor has been negligent, and you have been left with ongoing problems because of their negligence, a compensation claim through solicitors in Isle of Lewis can be a good way to help you to reach closure with the situation.

    You will be passed over to our solicitors in Isle of Lewis after this call if you decide to go ahead, although you are under no obligation to do so. Your solicitors in Isle of Lewis will work on a 100% ‘no win, no fee’ basis and will also work on your behalf so you shouldn’t have to go to court.
