Abstract
L’hystérectomie est une opération qui permet d’enlever l’utérus et le col de l’utérus. D’autres tissus comme les ovaires, les trompes de Fallope, des ganglions lymphatiques et des parties du vagin peuvent aussi être enlevés en même temps. Après l’opération, vous aurez une ou quelques incisions sur l’abdomen, une intraveineuse (IV) et un cathéter (tube) dans la vessie pour drainer l’urine, au besoin. Vous pourriez aussi avoir un tamponnement (matière absorbante) pour absorber le sang et le liquide s’écoulant de votre vagin. La présente brochure traite de la respiration, de la gestion de la douleur, de l’activité, de l’alimentation, des selles, des saignements vaginaux, des soins des incisions, des caillots de sang et de l’enflure des jambes. On fournit aussi de l’information sur les soins à la maison et les rapports sexuels après la chirurgie. On précise les symptômes qui exigent des soins médicaux et on propose des ressources.
This pamphlet is a French translation of "Hysterectomy" pamphlet 1907. A hysterectomy is an operation to remove your uterus (womb) and cervix. Other tissue, such as the ovaries, fallopian tubes, lymph nodes and parts of the vagina, may also be removed at the same time. After surgery you will have an incision in your abdomen, an intravenous (IV), a catheter (tube) in your bladder to drain urine, if needed. You may also have packing (absorbent material) to absorb blood and fluid in your vagina. Topics in this pamphlet include breathing, managing pain, activity, food, bowel activity, vaginal bleeding, incision care, blood clots, and leg swelling. Information on care at home and sex after surgery is provided. Symptoms that require medical attention are given and a resources section is provided.
