“I had a keyhole operation for a hysterectomy and my bowel was perforated.”
Gynaecological surgery can involve post-pregnancy corrective surgery, surgery to correct stress incontinence (Tension Free Vaginal Tape/TVT), hysterectomy (which may also involve removal of the ovaries and cervix) – as well as procedures such as laser ablation to treat abnormal cells on the neck of the womb, endometrial ablation to treat heavy bleeding and cosmetic procedures such as labia reduction.
Gynaecological surgery is usually straightforward and successful – but because the female sex organs lie near the bladder and bowel, sometimes complications occur and sometimes errors are made, such as injury to the large bowel.
Pre-operative patient evaluation and post-operative care are vital in gynaecological surgery – as in all surgery – to ensure a good patient outcome and reduce the risk of infection or damage to organs lying near the uterus (womb) and ovaries during surgery.
