hello bweil, i had the HTA done on jan.7 of this yr. and so far i love it. i have been talking with toby459 and she has helped me out alot. but as to throwing up i never done any of that. i started out with something blane to eat and plenty of fluids after my surgery. by the time i left the clinic after having my HTA done the bleeding had stopped. i did have discharge for 2 and half weeks afterwards. i will say this, here it is lil over 2 months after the HTA was done on me my sex life has picked back up.

Well I had the HTA done on 1-16 at an out patient surgery center. Wow what a difference the procedure working makes. Besides throwing up for 2 days after the procedure everything was totally different and not really painful. It's 2-2-09 and I am kinda sick of having to use a panty liner. My period should be soon so hopefully their will be a difference this month.

Hi Bweil, it could be related to the attempted procedure on 12/31 due to the uterine manipulation, however, I'd call your doctor just to make sure. He may want to just do an exam. Keep me posted. Good luck....Kim

Hi Bweil,We use the Thermachoice Balloon Ablation at our facility. We have trialed the HTA, but not the Novasure. The HTA worked well, but it was a bit more tedious to set up. They all seem to work very well. After the procedure, you can expect some discharge and some minor bleeding, but your monthly cycles will be significantly less or have no monthly bleeding at all. I would try this method first before going for the hysterectomy. As for shoulder pain after laparoscopy, this is normal. Usually walking helps get rid of the gas. Some patients do say the shoulder pain from the gas is worse than the pain of the surgery. But then again the incisions for laparoscopy are very tiny, so there isn't alot of incision pain associated with the procedure. Good luck....Kim, RN, Gyn Team Leader

I have had to have a laprascopic procedure done before for cysts on my ovaries and had alot of shoulder area pain from the gas they use for the procedure. Is that normal too? Is there a way to get rid of that? to me that was worse than the procedure or pain associated with the procedure?

Last week ( 12-31) I was scheduled for the Nova sure procedure. After the waiting the paracervical block and everything else the procedure couldnt be preformed because my doctor couldnt get a good seal. Dont remember alot of the chat with all the meds. After everything was over my doctor wanted me to have the HTA procedure and mentioned that I should consider a hysterectomy done lapascropically. I had to call my doctor on Friday because I continued to have some pain in the middle of my adodmen and on the left lower side. Not cramping but more of a stabbing pain now and then but enough to be uncomfortable and intercourse with my hubby is now painful and I spot afterwards. I dont know if that is normal??? My husband says that if I saw what they were doing and how hard they were trying to get the Novasure to work then this might be normal. Does anyone know what the advantage would be for a hyserectomy versus HTA? I dont want to take hormones etc. What can I expect after the HTA because after last week I am a bit nervous. Thanks for the help.
