Hysteroscopic surgery involves placing a small camera through the cervix to look at the inside of the uterus. Specialised instruments can be passed through the camera which allows the surgeon to operate inside the uterus without an incision. This is usually done under general anaesthesia.
Hysteroscopy can be used for:
• Assessment of uterine anatomy to evaluate structural abnormality ie septate uterus, polyp
• Treatment of heavy periods ie Endome trial ablation
• Removal of polyps and fibroids
• Removal of intrauterine adhesion
Normal uterine cavity Endometrial polyp/ submucosal fibroid.
What should I expect during recovery?
• You should be able to go home on the same day
• It is normal to have some mild cramping or a little bloody discharge for a few days after the procedure. You may be given medication to help ease the pain. If you have a fever, chills, or heavy bleeding, you will need review.
