I have a fibroid that my Dr says is about the "size of a 3-month fetus". Been taking BC pills for years to control heavy bleeding. Other symptoms are pain w/intercourse & abdominal bloating; My mother died of ovarian cancer at 62; I'm now 50 & trying to decide if surgery is right option? I'd get my ovaries removed and my Dr thinks she can do it all laparascopic. I am scared of surgery & on the fence! Advice needed!

You're very wise to ask questions since a hysterectomy is a big decision, and major surgery, which should only be considered as a last resort after all other options have been exhausted. You may find further medical opinions very useful indeed, if you've not already sought them. If not, then please take a moment to visit www.givemea2econd.com to find out how a second opinion could help you.
