Re: Hysterectomy or not? What are my options?

Hi there, having just had a total abdominal hysterectomy 5 weeks ago as a last resort - I would suggest there could be other options for you to consider from what you have described. Can the fibroid cysts be removed and the anaemia treated by some other means? What about reducing the blood flow by having the uterus scraped out......can't remember the term for this procedure but it significantly reduces menstral flow or can stop it altogether, and is recommended for women who do not wish to have more children. The question of hormones is complex - I am still researching HRT. Best of luck
