Dr. David :

Ashermans syndrome is scar tissue which forms in the uterus from prior uterine surgery.

Dr. David :

treatment involves surgery to cut and remove the adhesions or scar tissue from the uterus.

how old are you?

Dr. David :

Dr. David :

you can print out that article and bring it to her doctors

Dr. David :

and talk about surgeries which can help remove some of the scar tissue inside of the uterus.

Dr. David :

a hysteroscopy which uses small instruments and a camera placed into the uterus through the cervix can go into the uterus to remove scar tissue within the uterus.

Dr. David :

talk to her gyn doctors about this option

Dr. David :

she might have to travel to a larger hospital in a larger city to get this procedure.

best of luck to you and your daughter.

Dr. David :

do you have any other questions?

Customer:

what is the success rate with surgery,she is very fearful this will prevent her from having children in the future

Dr. David :

the success rate is high to be able to safely remove the scar tissue within the uterus.

Dr. David :

and it depends on the skill of the surgeon.

Dr. David :

but I'm sure you will be able to find a good gyn doctor who can do this

Dr. David :

are her doctors referring her to a gyn doctor who can do hysteroscopy?

Dr. David :

hello?

Customer:

she has been referred to a gyn doctor 6 months ago who tell her to wait to see if the lining will grow back,but this hasnt happened yet. does this sound ok to you?

Dr. David :

if she is having symptoms of pain I would see a doctor sooner

Dr. David :

and get an examination and hysteroscopy sooner.

Dr. David :

do you have other questions?

Customer:

one last question! how does one select a good surgeon for this procedure, are there any particular questions to ask?

Dr. David :

ask how experienced they are with hysteroscopy.

Dr. David :

how successful is fertility preserved after hysteroscopy

Dr. David :

ask to speak to other young patients who have had ashermans syndrome before and have had hysteroscopy procedure and maintained fertility.

Dr. David :

if the gyn doctor is good, they should be able to easily give you other patients who have been through this procedure to speak to.

Dr. David :

good luck

Dr. David :

let me know if you have other questions.
