Possible robotic hysterectomy in my future should I have it done before or after the tummy tuck?
By summer13 on 13 Apr 2011
I'm scheduled for a tummy tuck, breast lift revision & implants on 5/2/2011. Just heard from OB/GYN I need to have either an ablation with cone or a robotic hysterectomy. I had abnormal cells on my pap smear and also have servere bleeding during my periods. We decided on the ablation w/the cone but I'm having 2nd thoughts and now considering the hsyterectomy. He did say I was fine to wait and have the procedure done after my plastic surgery. My plastic surgeon does not want them to be done at the same time due to concerns with anthesia. Anyone have any experience with this? What are the scars like from a robotic hysterectomy? Anyone had an ablation and still needed to have the hysterectomy? How long afterwards? Any thoughts and experience will help! Thanks!!!
