As we mentioned in previous articles, endometriosis growing somewhere else other than the endometrium also reacts to hormonal signals of the monthly menstrual cycle by building up tissue, breaking it, and eliminating it through the menstrual period. Hysterectomy is always the last resort in treating endometriosis for women who have exhausted all treatments without success, or if endometrial tissues have become cancerous her doctor may suggest some type of hysterectomy. If hysterectomy is decided and the gynecologist is chosen, then pre-operative evaluation is necessary to make sure that all requirements are met for a successful surgery.

In this article, we will discuss anesthesia consultation as a pre-operative evaluation before a hysterectomy.

It is for your benefit to talk to your anesthesiologist who will be involved in the surgery if you decide to have hysterectomy. With the information that you provided together with other tests, your anesthesiologist may work together with your gynecologist to determine the type of anesthesia to be used during your hysterectomy.

Since anesthesia risks are always the main concern for any operation:
* If you are over the age of 50, you will need pre-operative clearance from your family doctor or a pre-operative anesthesia evaluation.

* It is recommended that you talk to your anesthetist if you have had bad experiences from anesthesia in previous surgeries or if you have any concerns for your existing health conditions.

* Here are some health conditions that you should talk about with your anesthetist at least one day before the day of operation:
a) Any chronic illnesses that prevents you to engage in normal daily activities
b) Medical conditions that need medical attention.
c) Cardiovascular - previous history of angina, coronary heart disease, and heart attacks caused by high blood pressure.
d) Any respiratory diseases such as asthma or chronic obstruction pulmonary disease.
e) Any type of liver disease.

You can obtain the complete list of health conditions from the American Society of Anesthesiology by contacting them at this website
