Talk to me about a hysteroscopy

I am scheduled to have one next week. What should I be prepared for? I am taking the day off (obviously), but will there be a lot of pain? We are headed to the beach the next afternoon, and I'm a little freaked out that I won't be back to my normal self!

Re: Talk to me about a hysteroscopy

  • Mine really wasn't bad.  I took 4 advil before I went in, and had some cramping during the procedure and maybe a little for the rest of the day.  Nothing major, just period like cramps for the rest of the afternoon.  I hope you have an easy time of it - Good luck!!

  • I would have been fine to lay around on the beach the next day. I only had post bleeding the day of.   I'm fairly certain I was told no swimming, so that could be a bummer.

  • I was probably mostly ok the next day but I know I took it easy for a few days, especially with the toddler. I think pp is confusing an hsg and a hysterscopy because I don't think Advil before surgery is all one needs. Unless mine was different. It was actual surgery, I was completely out. I woke a couple of hours after surgery was done, went home and slept more since DH took the day off to drive me and to watch the toddler. Before my hsg I took advil and was fine. But again, those are two very different procedures so it depends on which one you are referring to.

  • @Aimothy‌ Thanks! I definitely didn't even think about the swimming thing! I'll have to ask on Tuesday.
    @carcrashheart‌ I'm having a hysteroscopy. I know I'll be completely out, and I've taken that day off work. Hopefully I'll just sleep it off and be okay.

    Any limitations on exercise?

  • Nope, not confused.  I've had both an HSG and a hysteroscopy.  I had the hysteroscopy in the office and was able to see the inside of my uterus on the screen which was sorta cool.  They did end up doing a biopsy while they were in there, and that hurt, but the actual procedure was NBD.

  • I had mine on a Friday and was fine to go back to work on Monday. I was a bit sore for a few days, but it really wasn't a big deal, and I only took maybe 1  or 2 of tha pain pills I had. I think lying on the beach would be the perfect way to recover!

  • Oh, and as far as limitations, I didn't have any, and was told to just do what you feel comfortable with. I had two incisions, one in my belly button, and one at my bikini line and wasn't supposed to get those wet for 24 hours, which worked out because I just wanted to lay there and rest anyways.

  • i don't recall having any restrictions, but i was pretty tired and felt off for a few days. i was totally out. the only time i got to see my ute was during the HSG. the hysterscopy was done to remove polyps. if i had to be awake during it i would have been all FTN and peaced out. i had to return two weeks later for a follow up. i think i was on pelvic rest until that follow up appt.

  • I couldn't exercise until cleared by the doctor at the follow up either.

  • I had my hysteroscpy done with laproscopy for endo, so my limitations could have been more than most, but I couldn't drive for a week or take a bath/swim u til the stitches came out. I want to say it was 2 weeks pelvic rest. I also couldn't lift more than 15 pounds for a week.
