Steps to take before Hysteroscopic Polypectomy
The procedure begins with history taking, physical examination, and careful workup of the suspected problem. You will be suggested not to eat or drink (including water) at least six hours before the operation.
What happens during the procedure?
The surgery is done under general anaesthesia. A long, thin instrument is passed through the vagina into the uterus. The instrument is used to remove or shave off the polyps. A hysteroscope is used as a surgical telescope for the optimum vision of the uterus. It is passed into the womb through the cervix. A liquid is then used to open the cavity of the uterus. If the lump is small, the hysteroscope can be used to extract it. This procedure is known as polypectomy.
After Hysteroscopic Polypectomy
You may need to stay in the hospital for a day. During your recovery period, your doctor will take frequent observations of your temperature, pulse, and blood pressure for several hours.
