What is TABHSO?

TABHSO, acronym of the surgical procedure that stands for Total Abdominal Hysterectomy and Bilateral Salphingooopherectomy, meaning the removal of the uterus, cervix, ovaries and fallopian tubes through an incision in the abdomen.

Women, particularly 45 years old and up are possible candidates to have this procedure done unto them. To closely monitor and fight this, you can have the annual pap smear or executive check up in any obstretic clinic near you. You may also try asking about the HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) vaccine from your obstetrician.

Knowing your body and becoming aware of the possible illnesses gives you an advantage by decreasing the risk of acquiring any problems in the future.

This major surgical procedure is commonly indicated to patients who has cancer, endometriosis, and uterine fibroids (that causes profuse and unsual bleeding).

Before deciding to undergo this operation, it is best to think it over a million times while carefully weighing your odds. The involved organs may not be as vital as the heart, lungs, liver, and kidneys but the side effects may lead to serious complications as well. For example, the absence of the ovaries in women, makes her more vulnerable to cardiovascular and skeletal problems due to the dramatic decrease of estrogen level in the body after the procedure.

So let us empower ourselves with knowledge and awareness...
