Re: Has anyone had a Hysterectomy mainly for this issue/reason?
Thanks to both of yall,
Thank you for writing about my thread. Schmal, If I have a hysterectomy, I will tell my doctor, to be sure and do the bladder "thing". I will probably spell it out in writing, or he will, and I will sign it! I tend to leave nothing to chance - especially concerning my doctors.
K-tee, I do have my ovaries checked out at least 1 x per year. About, 2 years ago, I had bad heavy clotty bleeding and am post menopausal. The gyno and I changed hormones some and nothing seemed to work, except lowering the hormones to the very lowest level. During this period (1 yr. approx.) of time, I had 3 or 4 vaginal ultrasounds. Then I had one every 6 mo. My last one was in October. It was said to be fine, but they could not see my ovaries, because my bowels were in the way.
On my other Vag. Ultras., I had cysts. They started out large, then stayed the same for 6 mo. and then went down a little, each time over the next 6 - 9 mo. Still have lower abdominal pains tho. I am taking Prempro 0.45 now. I was on Prempro 0.3, but it was not helping my nervousness, hot flashes and dryness, enuf. I will continue to check out all the procedures concerning dropped bladder, ovaries, female pain and hysterectomys.
Thanks for the info and if you have anymore - I am wanting all I can get my hands on.
I am calling my gynocologist this week, just to have a talk with him. Then I will go from there.
Take caer and thanks again.
