Hysterectomy or not?
 
Yes, I'm hoping to find someone out there that can help me make a decision. I have a surgery scheduled for mind August for a hysteroscopy-simple scraping of uterus/cervix. However, my problems have gotten worse and I've been considering a hysterectomy now for a couple of weeks. I've already had fibroids removed, I can't have children and I believe this will work better than what I originally had planned.

My doctor doesn't seem 100% on board, but, she doesn't seem opposed to it either. She said it was my choice and if that's the case, then I want the hysterectomy.

I had a total hysterectomy at age 39 because of fibroids and endometriosis. I'm 65 now and haven't regretted one day.

Re: Hysterectomy or not?
 
I'm just going to stand my ground with my doctor and tell her a hysterectomy is what I want. I'm in my 40's, but, I don't want to go through another surgery in a few years if it shouldn't work (the myomectomy). I'm not sure, I'll do a total, unless she puts it out there. I haven't been dx with endo, but, I sure in heck do have a lot of the signs.
