Re: Hysterectomy coming up soon...Should I keep my Ovaries?

I'm 39 and had my LAVH a year ago in April, but they didn't take my ovaries at the time. I wanted them to just get it all over with at once, but the doctor told me insurance refuses to pay unless there is something actually wrong with the ovaries.

I wish I didn't have them, no matter how my hormones react. I've done multiple rounds of Lupron Depot, and I've already experienced the "joys" of menopause through that, so losing my ovaries didn't seem like a huge deal.

If you want to keep them, just talk to your doctor. I doubt he/she will not take them if they're not medically ready to come out.

Good luck!!!
