So, open hysterectomy and salpingoophorectomy today, nothing strange with that but it feels like I got some kind of sympathy aches for those poor wombs. Or my period is coming on -.-

Ha, so today was hysterectomy again, but robot assisted! And i'm used to prostate robots, but naturally lots of things had to be done differently here. Of course! <.<

Positioning, disinfection, angling the operating table and draping were all different. But the actual surgery was much faster than a prostatectomy, so we could actually get three done in one day without going overtime :D

Although one of the patients was so grossly overweight her anatomy was slightly abnormal, with fat deposits around the uterus that our surgeon had never ever seen before, which complicated things thoroughly.

So, I've spent all summer in urological surgery, whihch is not much of any open abdomens. Today was open hysterectomies, in which the patients in question had to be opened from symphysis to xiphoid process to ba able to also remove paraaortal lymph nodes.

Lots of instruments and me with practically zero idea of whats going to happen, but all went well and the surgeons were pleased with all of our work. So all in all a very good day.
