Wertheim’s Hysterectomy

Wertheim’s Hysterectomy | Gynaecology | Mumbai, India
So named after its developer, a Wertheim’s Hysterectomy refers to a radical total hysterectomy complete with removal of pelvic lymph nodes and parametrium.
But, as is common to all surgical procedures, there are a lot of myths that are floating around this surgical procedure like
It is a common procedure
Quite on the contrary, radical total hysterectomy is an option exercised only after every other therapeutic option has failed to produce the desired results and usually only when in the unfortunate cases where there is malignancy
There’s no bladder training required after a radical hysterectomy
False! Characteristically after a radical hysterectomy, bladder healing mandates keeping the catheter immobile for about 10 days post-surgery. Bladder training is taught on the tenth day. It involves episodic closing of the catheter, enabling normal urinal passage
Consuming a lot of fluids worsens the situation
The actual fact is that drinking lots of fluids is imperative to avert bladder contagion though the entire period that catheter is still inside the body
You can randomly shower
Bad news for all you water babies! Only after the surgical incision has cured will you be allowed to take tub baths or showers
