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

In this article, we will discuss blood and coagulation studies as pre operative evaluation before hysterectomy.

I. Blood test

Blood test is necessary for your gynecology to measure how your body functions. If any disorder of heart, kidney, liver or other organs your blood will show them in the blood test. There are 3 types in basic blood test.

b) Potassium

Potassium deficiency may indicate of weaken the functions of heart muscles while unbalancing of potassium causes irregular heartbeat.

c) Chloride

Low level of chloride in the blood make our blood more acidic causing interference of chemicals reaction in the body.

d) Bicarbonate

Bicarbonate helps the lung and kidney to regulate level of bicarbonate in the blood stream. Too low or too high level of bicarbonate is an indication of either lung or kidney diseases or both.

2) Blood urea nitrogen

Blood urea nitrogen is a good indication how well your kidney function in breaking down protein. Disorder of kidney function causes high level of urea waste product building up in the bloodstream.

3. Creatinine

Our liver helps in filtering and excreting creatinine, any creatinine builds up in the bloodstream is good indication of kidney malfunction.

Coagulation is a complex process by which blood forms clots. Disorder of coagulation can lead to an increased risk of heavy bleeding or clotting. Coagulation study is necessary for woman before hysterectomy, if she has a history of heavy bleeding or blood clotting disorder.
