Waiting to treat fibroids can lead to worsening GYN symptoms. As fibroids continue to grow, they can distort the uterus, increase pain and blood loss.
“The pain increased daily. Apparently my fibroids were ‘banging into each other’. Per my coworkers I was hunched over and paler than normal (some even stated I looked green). I was worn out from the pain and the fibroids themselves. The pain was pretty awful, but I tried not to focus on it. In fact, I didn’t realize exactly how bad it was until it was completely gone after my surgery. What a difference!” Heather said.
DISCOVERING CIGC’S ADVANCED MINIMALLY INVASIVE TECHNIQUES
Heather’s friend heard a radio ad for The Center for Innovative GYN Care.
“She knew I was having a lot of pain and was becoming a bit down at the prospects of having them removed, or going through a bikini cut surgery. I have a very demanding job that I love, and I just couldn’t be away from work for weeks at a time or possibly months. I had heard nightmares about recovery times from hysterectomies including things like not being able to do stairs, not being able to lift more than 15 lbs, not being able to well….do much of anything. It was quite disheartening.”
“After I received the information on CIGC, I was given hope. My outlook on having a hysterectomy slowly changed the more I read about what the different procedures were and the recovery times. All of the procedures are minimally invasive and the recovery times almost seemed too good to be true! I began researching reviews on CIGC and found some pretty amazing stories of relief and recovery from various conditions such as fibroids.”
DUALPORTGYN HYSTERECTOMY AT CIGC
At CIGC, hysterectomy is performed using the advanced DualPortGYN technique developed by Dr. Natalya Danilyants MD and Dr. Paul J. MacKoul MD. The laparoscopic procedure uses two 5 mm midline incisions. They are placed in cosmetically appealing locations so they are barely noticeable once they heal. As these incisions go through the midline, not through muscle, post-operative recovery is faster and with less pain. Women are usually back to work within 1 week.
“I am thrilled that this was an outpatient surgery with only one 5mm incision in my lower belly and one in my bellybutton. The DualPortGYN procedure was used and I am so very very thankful that I went to CIGC for this procedure. I felt safe and well cared for. I knew I was in good hands.”
RECOVERY AFTER OUTPATIENT SURGERY
Heather had her outpatient minimally invasive hysterectomy the day before Thanksgiving and she was able to have dinner with her family and enjoy the holiday the next day.
“Every day after that surgery I have been able to do more and more and the pain/discomfort has become less and less. Two weeks after my surgery I was able to put up my 7 1/2 ft Christmas tree and decorate it by myself without any help. I was able to return to work 10 days after my surgery. That is amazing. I have not had any discomfort while sitting at my desk working…which is new to me as I was in agony for quite a few months. It’s been almost a month since my surgery and what a difference! I have more energy. I am not in pain. I’m able to do so much more now and I grow stronger every day. It is literally a night and day difference since my surgery.”
