"The other option is a hysterectomy. Depending on your age in life and or your future desires for childbearing. Of course, if you want to have children, this too is not an option for you because the uterus is the womb that carries your baby. If you want to have the desire or have the ability to have future children, then a hysterectomy is not a viable option. However, if you have surpassed that time and you are, or you have no future desires for childbearing, then the hysterectomy can be considered. There are various ways of doing hysterectomy and, or based on those ways, your hospitalization will be determined. Sometimes you can do it where you actually go home the same day, but most people are in the hospital overnight and go home. The next day, there are various approaches depending on your anatomy, and or your medical history, surgical history. But the options include a vaginal hysterectomy, which is done all through the vagina. There are different types of laparoscopic hysterectomy. The traditional laparoscopic hysterectomy or laparoscopic assisted vaginal hysterectomy, where the uterus comes out through the vagina. Supracervical hysterectomy where the cervix is kept in and they just remove the uterus itself. And then there is also a robotic and, or da Vinci assisted hysterectomy. Those are all types of laparoscopic hysterectomy. And then there is something called an abdominal hysterectomy, which is with a scar similar to a C-section scar, typically going over the hair or Mons of your pubic area. And the incision goes approximately that with of the hairline, sometimes a little wider, depending on the clinician."
