Re: Going for total hysterectomy scared

I had a large ovarian cyst. All my organs were removed even though the cyst was benign. With all the surgeries you've had, you could have adhesions that are causing the pain. Ovarian cysts don't necessarily cause pain. But if they remove just the cysts and leave your ovaries and uterus, you would know if the pain was from the cysts. And you'd still have your organs that are essential to lifelong health - physical, mental, emotional, sexual.

I was almost 50 when I had my hysterectomy. Everything fell apart after that. And now I deal with chronic pelvic pain and back, hip, and rib cage pain.
