Total Abdominal Hysterectomy Bilateral Salpingo Oophorectomy / TAHBSO

This is my pic at Metro Lemery Medical Center - Operating Room (Lemery, Batanggas)

My Mom underwent Total Abdominal Hysterectomy Bilateral Salpingo Oophorectomy / TAHBSO last week (Friday the thirteenth) at Chinese General Hospital. My Mom's myoma is the reason why she needs to undergo in this surgical procedure.

TAHBSO or Total Abdominal Hysterectomy Bilateral Salpingo Oophorectomy is a surgical procedure involving the removal of the uterus, both ovaries, and the fallopian tubes through an incision in the abdomen. The lymph nodes in the pelvis may also be removed. This is a treatment for endometrial cancer and uterine sarcoma. TAHBSO is simply an operation to remove the womb.

In the past, the most common hysterectomy was done by an incision (cut) through the abdomen (abdominal hysterectomy) which was done to my Mom. Now, most of the surgeries can utilize laparoscopic assisted or vaginal hysterectomies (performed through the vagina rather than through abdomen).

Of course, my Mom underwent different medical laboratory examinations like pelvic exam, ultrasound, complete blood count and even ECG.

Before the procedure my Mom told her doctor, "Doc, papaano na ako mabubuntis nito?". The doctor just smile and said, "Menopause na po kayo". It's just a joke so we laugh na lang. Hehe!

I am nervous though I know that it's not that risky procedure since my Mom did her part to ready herself in the procedure. By the way, TAHBSO is my very first handled surgical operation last year at Metro Lemery Medical Center. See our Case Presentation here about the TAHBSO I performed at Metro Lemery Medical Center.

This is the specimen I have got from the procedure of the patient with H-Mole at Metro Lemery Medical Center.

I did cry (I don't know why!) when I saw my mother after operation. She's still under the anaesthesia when I saw her beign delivered at the ward. Hayz!

Now, she's okey and recovered. Thanks to all my friends who prayed for her operation and her recovery.

Alam kong marami sa inyo ang hindi makakaintindi sa gagawin kong ito. Iilang tao lang naman ang nakakaalam sa buong istorya. Pero isa-isahin ko na kayong padalahan sa mensaheng ito dahil importante kayo lahat sa akin. Kahit papano, may pinagsamahan tayo. Wala na po ang jayveeonline. Napagdesisyonan kong ibaon na lamang ito sa limot. Hindi ko na po ito gagamitin at pupuntahan. Kung sino man ang bumibista doon noon, maraming salamat sa inyo. Bahagi kayong lahat sa pagiging blogger ko. Pero siguro hanggang dito na lamang ako. Pero patuloy pa rin akong magbibisita sa inyong lahat.

Gusto ko rin ipaabot dun sa mga taong involve dito. Gaya ng paulit-ulit kong sinasabi sa inyo, wala akong pinapanigan at mas lalong wala akong sisiraan sa inyo. Nasa gitna niyo lang ako, handang makinig sa kung anong hinaing ang gusto niyong ipalabas. Kung ano mang gulo mero tayo ngayon, sana naman maayos na ito. Mahal ko kayong lahat kasi lahat kayo mga KAIBIGAN ko. Alam kong nasaktan tayong lahat pero sana magpakatawaran na.

Maraming salamat.

Grabe parang litson na manok lang no? Myoma, naalala ko noong nag overnight kami sa guimaras island last week, I shared to my college close friend about my high school friend na nag undergo rin sa ganyang operation, buti na lang naaagapan dahil parang bola na ang mayoma niya sad to say na single pa siya at hindi na siya makakaanak. And then, my college close friend commented: Bakit ganun? Di ba dalawa ang matres natin? And she just realized she was talking to me. lol

Anyway, buti na lang naoperahan na ang nanay mo, natawa ako dun sa joke niya. hehehe. TC!
