What is all about Abdominal Hysterectomy?
A hysterectomy alone means the removal of the uterus. There are two ways that the surgeon can operate 1. Laparoscopically (key hole) where the uterus is removed by 1 to 4 small incisions in the abdomen to allow the surgical instruments to enter the abdominal cavity. 2. Abdominal is where the surgeon accesses the abdominal cavity by way of a six inch incision in your stomach. Recovery time from abdominal surgery is usually longer and you are left with a larger scar than with laparoscopic surgery.
I am having a abdominal hysterectomy on the 22 August and am due to fly on the 7 September, will I be okay to fly if I take all the necessary precautions? This will depend on type of hysterectomy you are having. Laproscopic recovery times are much quicker than abdominal BUT you should ask your surgeon and doctor as you may need a certificate of fitness to travel for the airline. GOOD LUCK
After a laproscopic hysterectomy there will be some bloating for a few days as the abdomen is inflated with CO2 gas for the surgery which takes up to a week to deflate however after this time the stomach should reduce to normal. With an abdominal hysterectomy the surgeon will have cut through the abdominal Wall and it will obviously take longer for this heal and the abdominal muscles will need to be strengthened. But this…
Total hysterectomy is complete removal of you fallopian tubes,ovaries and uterus. We call it total abdominal hysterectomy,oopherectomy and salphingectomy. Technically a Total Hysterectomy is the removal of uterus and cervix. Total hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo oopherectomy is the removal of uterus,cervix,fallopian tubes and ovaries
Cysts are usually found on the ovaries whereas a total hysterectomy whether abdominal or laproscopic removes the uterus and cervix. If the cysts are cancerous then their removal would be one option either by an oopherectomy (removal of the ovary) or a cystectomy removal of the cysts. It would be unusual therefore to have a hysterectomy for ovarian cysts unless there are other conditions which may point to this such as fibroids etc,
total abdominal hysterectomy (TAH), and supracervical abdominal hysterectomy (SAH). In a TAH, the uterus and the cervix are both removed. In a SAH, only the uterus is removed. Although your ovaries may be removed during a TAH or SAH, these procedures can easily be performed without removing your ovaries.
A total hysterectomy removes the uterus and the cervix, leaving a vaginal cuff (which is sutured, at the top of the vaginal canal). A TAH-BSO is a total abdominal hysterectomy (as described above), along with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, meaning that the fallopian tubes and ovaries are also removed).
This will depend on whether you have abdominal or laproscopic hysterectomy and also how quickly you heal. The consensus in the medical profession is at least six weeks for abdominal and four for laproscopic. Be advised by your medical team and ensure you obtain a certificate of fitness to fly from your doctor as the airline may require this and your insurance may not cover you should there be complications.

Depending on what type of hysterectomy you have yes. An abdominal will leave a scar about 6 inches long on your abdomen and laproscopic will leave three to four 3-5 mm scars. Therefore if the man knows the tell tale signs he could hazard a guess that you have had a hysterectomy. I wouldn't think most men would be that savvy but they may ask how you got them.
