Gynecologic Surgery

Many reproductive health issues can be both diagnosed and treated with surgery. Here is some information from the SOGC and Bupa (from the UK) regarding several common gynecology surgeries.  We have also included the handouts you will receive from the hospital regarding post-operative instructions after surgery.

CGMH General post-operative instructions

 

 

After most gynecologic surgeries, we recommend regular use of a combination of acetominophen (Tylenol) and an antiinflammatory (ie. ibuprofen/Advil, naproxen/Aleve) to help control your pain.  You may also be prescribed a small amount of opioid tablets to help with your pain during the first few days after the surgery.  Please see this important information regarding safe use of opioid medications:
