Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I have adenomyosis (10 cm) in my uterus. I had one laparotomy and one hysteroscopy.

Please help.

Thank you.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Adenomyosis is a condition in which the tissue that normally lines the uterus grows into the muscular walls of the uterus. This can cause heavy, painful periods and may also lead to infertility. Surgery is an option for treating adenomyosis, but the extent of surgery depends on the severity of the condition and the individual's overall health. In your case, it seems that you have undergone laparotomy and hysteroscopy, which are two common procedures used to diagnose and treat adenomyosis.

Laparotomy involves making an incision in the abdomen to access the uterus and other pelvic organs. During the procedure, the surgeon can remove any visible adenomyosis lesions or areas of tissue that have grown into the uterine wall. This can help to reduce pain and other symptoms associated with the condition. Hysteroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that involves inserting a thin, lighted instrument called a hysteroscope into the uterus through the vagina. The hysteroscope allows the surgeon to view the inside of the uterus and identify any abnormalities or growths, such as adenomyosis. In some cases, the surgeon may also be able to remove the adenomyosis tissue during the procedure. It is important to note that surgery may not be a permanent solution for adenomyosis, as the condition can recur over time.

Thank you.
