Are You Getting Panic Attacks Because of Hysterectomy?

Hysterectomy is a surgical procedure used for removing the uterus and is typically performed by a gynecologist. The operation can be “total” or “partial”. Total hysterectomy involves removal of the body and cervix of the uterus while partial hysterectomy involves removal of only a part. There are a number of cases in which oophorectomy (removal of ovaries) is carried out along with hysterectomy. In such cases, the surgery is referred to as TAH-BSO (Total Abdominal Hysterectomy with Bilateral Salpingo-Ooporectomy). The important thing to note here is that hysterectomy is often improperly used to represent any instance of removal of any part of the female reproductive system. Hysterectomy panic attacks are quite common following the surgery.

Hysterectomy panic attacks are often the cause of hot flashes. Menopause is widely known as the primary causative agent behind hot flashes. It is estimated that more than 80% of all American females experience night sweats and hot flashes during this time. Though there are many hormonal fluctuations that take place in the female body during menopause the precise cause of it happening is not known. Hysterectomy panic attacks in the form of hot flashes can last from just a couple of seconds to several long minutes. In rare cases, they have been known to last for as much as a whole hour.

Hysterectomy panic attacks are quite common and this is understandable when you consider two factors. The first is that most surgeries are traumatic and the second is that hysterectomy often causes a slew of symptoms that are not indicative of panic attacks. Combined, the two form solid grounds that serve as invitations to hysterectomy panic attacks. Dizziness is one of the most prominent symptoms after hysterectomy. This causes anxiety in the recovering patient because the sensation of things spinning out of control is too much to take and the resulting anxiety quite frequently explodes into hysterectomy panic attacks. The problem of dizziness is made severe by another side effect of hysterectomy, tinnitus. This condition is related to the ears and it results in many aural sensations that are falsely reported to the human brain. Think of it as hearing things that are made up entirely in your head but have no sound and are not perceptible to other human beings. For example the whooshing of air, a constant high pitched sound, or even chirping in some cases (as that of crickets), are all sounds that when continued over long stretches of time will tend to disorient or annoy the patient.

Hysterectomy panic attacks are actually reported to be fewer among women who had symptoms of depression or anxiety before the operation. Why this happens is not known, but it is quite evident that surgery affects normal women more than women who have already incurred the symptoms. A certain amount of anxiety is only natural when anyone is considering going through even with the most harmless of surgeries. Hysterectomy panic attacks are a compound result of this anxiety, the natural tendency of the patient to worry needlessly, personal attitude towards things in general, as well as the ability to adapt to new and uncertain conditions, especially in circumstances of duress.
