Why TAH BSO is performed?
The hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy will both be done during one procedure. This surgery will remove the uterus, cervix, ovaries, and fallopian tubes. After a hysterectomy you will no longer have periods or be able to become pregnant.
What happens to a woman's body after her uterus is removed?
Because your uterus is removed, you no longer have periods and cannot get pregnant. But your ovaries might still make hormones, so you might not have other signs of menopause. You may have hot flashes, a symptom of menopause, because the surgery may have blocked blood flow to the ovaries.
How long does a TAH BSO take?
A hysterectomy typically is performed under general anesthesia, so you won't be awake during the surgery. The procedure itself generally lasts about one to two hours, although you'll spend some time beforehand getting ready to go into the operating room.
Total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (TAH-BSO) is removal of the uterus, cervix and both fallopian tubes and ovaries.
The chance of cervical cancer is fairly low, and Pap-smear screening will catch most cases, these doctors say. And leaving the cervix untouched reduces the risk of surgical damage to the bladder and nearby nerves, and may even allow a woman to enjoy a better sex life long term, say doctors who perform these procedures.
Some husbands worry their wives may feel different or no longer express interest in them. The reality is that sex after hysterectomy for the man may feel surprisingly similar. In all procedures, the surgeon takes steps to maintain vaginal functionality. A hysterectomy is simply a surgery that removes the uterus.
Possible side effects
Can the uterine lining grow back following an endometrial ablation? Yes. It's possible that the endometrial lining will grow back after an endometrial ablation.
You will probably notice that your belly is swollen and puffy. This is common. The swelling will take several weeks to go down. It may take about 4 to 6 weeks to fully recover.
Technically, any woman of legal age can consent to the procedure, but it should be medically justified. It's incredibly unlikely that a doctor will perform a hysterectomy on women ages 18-35 unless it is absolutely necessary for their well-being and no other options will suffice.
It takes about 6 to 8 weeks to fully recover after having an abdominal hysterectomy. Recovery times are often shorter after a vaginal or laparoscopy hysterectomy. During this time, you should rest as much as possible and not lift anything heavy, such as bags of shopping.
After your uterus is removed (hysterectomy) all the normal organs that surround the uterus simply fill the position previously occupied by the uterus. Mostly it is bowel that fills the space, as there is lots of small and large bowel immediately adjacent to the uterus.
If you have a vaginal hysterectomy or a laparoscopic-assisted vaginal hysterectomy recovery can be as short as two weeks. Pain is generally minimal. You may feel some achiness and tenderness at the incision sites (if the surgery was performed laparoscopically).

It's still possible to have an orgasm following a hysterectomy. In fact, many women may experience an increase in the strength or frequency of orgasm. Many of the conditions for which hysterectomy is performed are also associated with symptoms like painful sex or bleeding after sex.
