hysterectomy alternatives

I have been told by a gyno that I have a prolapsed uterus and bladder. The only symptom I had was a bulge that came out of my vagina twice. I have no pain or any other symptoms. The gyno has said the only solution is a complete hysterectomy with removal of the ovaries. Is there anything else I can do about this as I have read real horror stories from people who have had this procedure.

I appreciate any thoughts on this - Gayle

Re: hysterectomy alternatives

I agree with the other poster, get a second or even third opinion.
A removal of your ovaries has absolutely nothing to do with your current medical condition, this would only be of benefit if you had a problem with your ovaries. Removal of them would send you into menopause. Nor will it fix your prolapsed bladder.
The surgeon can do a few "stitches" to hold your prolapsed bladder in place. A hysterectomy would be a last resort, but would only fix the prolapsed uterus because it would be removed.
