Hysterectomy

Hi I am due to have a hysterctomy just my uterus will be removed . The reason I am having a hysterctomy is that I have been in a lot of pain with endromesis I have had this for the last 12 years and tried medication and injections none have really worked . My ovaries will be left as i am 37 yrs old . I have been told that if there removed I will have a instant menapause. I don't feel I have really been given any other choice.will the hysterctomy really eliminate the endo. If anyone has any information or advice. I did ask about a endromitrial ablation but I was told this would not help the endo?Any advice? Thanks in advance

Re: Hysterectomy

Well that is hard! I'm sorry you are having those problems.

I want to share with you that ovaries don't live long, if at all, once separated from the uterus. Leaving the ovaries does not mean you won't be in instant menopause, or at least very quickly occurring menopause, and can cause the need for another surgery to clean that out.

If I were you (and I wish i had) I would get two or three other opinions outside of the medical group you are with. If in the states I think insurance has to cover at least one opinion outside your medical group. If you are a cash payer, then it is still well worth the money. At least do plenty of research on leaving the ovaries VS removing them.

You may want to visit the menopause board, too as probably there are those that chose one method over the other and can give their experiences. I opted to have mine out. I regret having the hysterectomy itself. Dealing with hormones is an endless pain, and at some point most docs will want to deny them to you, saying they create too much risk.

Re: Hysterectomy

Thanks for your reply. I have managed to get a appointment for a second opinion to see a specialist outside my medical area group. So hopefully I will know more in 2 weeks time. Thankyou for your advice it was very helpfull. I'm sorry that your hysterctomy didnt solve your problems.
