PCOS and considering hysterectomy???

Hello...I am 47 yrs old and have PCOS. I have not had a menstrual cycle in 18 months. I already have ALL the symptoms of H minus the hot flashes. I have diabetes 2, osteothritis, RA, extreme fatigue, mood swings, and am about 15 lbs overweight. I was considering a complete H thinking that it would be easier to control my hormones if I got rid of the ovaries and took HRT and THOUGHT alot of the side effects of PCOS would go away but after reading here I see that is not the case. Since I have not had a mens. cycle in 18 months and am 47, I thought possibly my body is reacting as if I have gone through menopause. I have had these issues for atleast 20 years and am looking for some form of relief...even if just a little improvement. Any thoughts or suggestions. My doctor did not suggest the H but was fast to agree to perform it, now I see I am in need of another appointment to discuss these concerns. Will a H cause additional weight gain (more so then the PCOS causes) What are the pros of the H aside from relief from the pain? Will it eventually lessen the facial hair and help with the male pattern baldness? Ty for reading and any info you can provide.

Hi merrymtn to HysterSisters!

I do not know the answers to most of your questions. You really need to discuss these with your doctor. It also sounds as if you may want to get a second opinion on your situation.

Regarding weight gain after a hysterectomy. Some women gain weight, some do not. Having a hysterectomy does not in itself guarantee you will gain weight. I myself have not gained weight and it has been 18 months.
