Upcoming hysterectomy/BSO 9/9: getting ready for surgery and nervous about long term consequences of not having ovaries

I'm 30 years old BRCA2 pos, pcos, and getting ready to have a total hysterectomy including both ovaries removed in 2 weeks. I have been trying to avoid dealing with all this for some time now despite the history of breast cancer creeping up in as young as 35 with my aunts. With the second false alarm on a breast lump, huge painful cysts, and a sudden doubling of my ca125 I could no longer avoid the topic. My breast specialist along with my crew of other specialists are all recommending the same action and I agree with them......but Honestly I'm scared as hell about what to expect after, and just what the long term consequences of not having ovaries at such a young age will do to my health and my sex life. I have been told that low dose estrogen can be taken until I'm ready to face menopause or wind up with cancer. But I still don't know how I'm going to feel and if things will change after the surgery .....if anyone has some experience or support to share I would truly appreciate it.

Re: Upcoming hysterectomy & BSO 9/9: BRCA2 pos getting ready for surgery and nervous

Hi Nugglenose,

I'm sorry you have to lose your ovaries due to a BRCA2 mutation. There are several women on this site who are facing the same challenges. Please feel free to look through our ---> Gyn Genetics Articles. Many of them address BRCA mutations as well as options and resources. I wish you the best of luck, and I hope you can find all the support here that you need.
