A hysterectomy (Vaginal) is a surgical procedure to remove the uterus through the vagina. During a vaginal hysterectomy, the surgeon detaches the uterus from the ovaries, fallopian tubes and upper vagina, as well as from the blood vessels and connective tissue that support it. The most common reason for a hysterectomy is uterine fibroids. There are several types of hysterectomy, each option depends on a person's specific condition. In Vaginal hysterectomy an incision is made inside the vagina, and the uterus is removed through this incision. Laparoscopic hysterectomy is a thin tube and a small camera is inserted into very small cuts in the abdomen. The uterus is removed through the cuts. In abdominal hysterectomy a larger incision is made in the abdomen to remove the uterus. A total hysterectomy is when both the uterus and cervix are removed. Recovery time for a vaginal hysterectomy is shorter than for an abdominal hysterectomy. Patient will be able to leave the hospital after a day or two, depending on recovering process. It usually takes three to six weeks for a full recovery and returns to normal activities.
