questions pre-op

HI EVERYONE,
THIS IS MY FIRST TIME WRITING. I AM SUPPOSED TO HAVE A HYSTERECTOMY IN JUNE ( LAP/VAG). I HAVE A FEW QUESTIONS BEFORE I MAKE MY INITIAL DECISION.
I HAVE FIBROIDS, STABBING PAIN ON MY RIGHT SIDE AND HEAVY BLEEDING.
PMS IS HORRIBLE!!!!! I HAVE ONE GOOD WEEK A MONTH THAT I AM NICE TO MY FAMILY. I AM TRYING TO DECIDE IF I SHOULD KEEP MY OVARIES OR NOT. MY DOC SAYS IN THE BLOOD WORK OVARIAN CYSTIC .....SHOWS UP AND MAY EVENTUALLY CAUSE PROBLEMS. HE ALSO SAID IF I DON'T HAVE THE OVARIES REMOVED I WILL STILL HAVE THE PMS. HAS ANYONE HAD OVARIES REMOVED W/ PMS AND ARE TOTALLY CURED (HA HA)
HOW ABOUT THE HRT????
THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT. ALSO HOW IS LIBIDO WITHOUT OVARIES? i AM 45 AND NOT WILLING TO FOREGO THAT YET.
THANKS
CHERYL (ARNNCHER)

Hi Cheryl,

Deciding to keep your ovaries is such a hard decision. I had to make mine in a week.

I did decide to keep them unless they looked diseased or something was wrong with them when the surgeons opened me up.

Also, my age and the fact that I don't have any cancer history in my family.

Good luck on your decision!

Hi Cheryl,

Let me tell you something. I am having a TAH BSO on March 13 and I cannot WAIT for it all to come out. I have horrible PMS and have had since I was 12 (I just turned 40). My ovaries are a breeding ground for cysts and my periods are just awful, not to mention everything else that goes with it.

I told the Dr. I was ready to feel better and I didn't care what it took, just please help me to feel good. With everything I've been through I think handling HRT will be a piece of cake!

But as every woman is different and feels differently about her surgery just be sure it's what you want to do and make sure you feel good about it. Part of the healing process is emotional healing as well.

hope everything goes well for you and good luck.
