Re: hysterectomy and high cholesterol

Re: hysterectomy and high cholesterol

I still have my ovaries, so I don't have that problem. It seems like I've read of women having cholesterol problems after having their ovaries removed. What has your doctor said about it?

Re: hysterectomy and high cholesterol

I have had a hysterectomy, with remaining ovaries. It has been a while since my surgery but I do have high colesterol. Statins did not work out for me , due to side effects.
