Non-Surgical or Other Surgical Alternatives to Bilateral Salpingo-Oophorectomy:

An ectopic pregnancy may resolve on its own without the need for bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. As a surgical alternative to the procedure, it may be performed with the laparoscopic method.

Anesthesia with Bilateral Salpingo-Oophorectomy:

Bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy is performed under general anesthesia, which means that the patient is asleep and completely unaware during the procedure.

Potential Complications from Bilateral Salpingo-Oophorectomy:

Possible risks following bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy include infection, bleeding and a negative reaction to the anesthesia. It is also possible to experience an incisional hernia.

Prognosis after Bilateral Salpingo-Oophorectomy:

The prognosis for a positive end result following bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy is good for the majority of women. However, the patient will be infertile following the procedure and may need to take hormone replacement drugs to manage menopause-related symptoms.

Recovery from Bilateral Salpingo-Oophorectomy:

The total recovery time for bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy is four to six weeks.
