Hysteroscopy for Intrauterine Defect
What happens later at home?
Later a woman may:
feel sleepy or groggy from the anesthesia
have menstrual-like cramps
retain more urine than usual
feel burning when urinating for a few hours after surgery
have watery vaginal discharge for 1 to 4 weeks
What are the potential complications after the procedure?
Although this is a minor procedure, problems may occur, including:
problems related to anesthesia, such as an allergic reaction or trouble breathing
pain during the procedure if local anesthesia is insufficient
a puncture of the uterus, which may injure the bowel or bladder
infection of the cervix, uterine lining, or fallopian tubes
vaginal bleeding from blood vessels in the uterus or a torn cervix
too much fluid, which can cause salt imbalance, fluid in the lungs known as pulmonary edema, or kidney shutdown, known as acute renal failure. This is more common when the procedure takes a long time and large amounts of fluid are used in the uterus.
