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