The removing of the womb takes place when a patient has uterine cancer or experiences uterine bleeding, cervical dysplasia or endometriosis. That’s when a hysterectomy is needed, recommended, and scheduled. If you have had problems with any of these things in the past and haven’t seen Dr. Wilburn before, you’ll want to tell her your medical history.
This allows her to give you the best possible care available. It also helps Dr. Wilburn determine which hysterectomy procedure is best for you. She’ll consider several factors and then speak to you about your options so that you’re a partner in the process, not just a patient.
You’ll want to give yourself enough time to heal following your surgery. That’s why it’s important to discuss what you can and cannot do during this time. Let the doctor know what you want to know about the surgery and recovery times because you don’t want to do something that impedes the healing process.
Contact Genesis Women’s Health Services today to schedule a time to meet with Dr. Wilburn. Taking good care of your gynecological health increases your mental health and overall well-being. Let her know what she can do to ease your worries and help you make an informed decision about what type of hysterectomy surgery you’ll undergo.
