http://www.PreOp.com Patient ED @ 617-379-1582 INFO On the day of your operation, you will be asked to put on a surgical gown. You may receive a sedative by mouth and an intravenous line may be put in. You will then be transferred to the operating table. In the operating room, a nurse will begin preparation by clipping or shaving the abdomen. The anesthesiologist will begin to administer anesthesia - most probably general anesthesia. Patient Education The surgeon will then apply an antiseptic solution to the skin... place a sterile drape around the operative site... After allowing a few minutes for the anesthetic to take effect... Your doctor will decide whether to make a vertical... or horizontal incision. An incision is made cutting through the skin and muscle of the abdomen. Next, the surgeon will inspect the general condition of the abdominal organs. Once the ovaries are exposed the uterus can then be separated from the bladder. Next, the fallopian tubes are tied off and cut. All arteries and veins connected to the uterus are tied off and cut as well. Now the uterus can be pulled upward. This stretches the vagina allowing the surgeon to cut the uterus free at the cervix. The surgeon closes the top of the vagina with stitches, and provides added support by attaching the ligaments that once held the uterus in place. The incision is then closed... and a drainage tube may be left inserted at the site. Finally, a sterile bandage is applied. Patient Education Company
