alternative to hystercomy

I took the advice from some of you to get a second opinion on a hystercomy. I have stress incontince and went to a ob-gyn who
suggested doing a complete hystercomy. Because i am over
45 and will not be having any more children they think a hystercomy is the way to go but i am not having tbl with my periods and i do not believe they should remove my uterus,
cerfix, ovaries and tubes just in case. Anyway i did go to a uroligist and he suggested doing a mmk only no mention of hystercomy. One reason the ob-gyn wants to remove everything is because of the risk of ovarian and unterine cancer there is none in my family as far as i know. Any help would be
appreciated.

Hi Linda,

The risk of ovarian and uterine cancer is quite small, especially if you don't have a family history of these cancers. I think you were very wise to see a urologist about the stress incontinence. A hyst is major surgery and not something to do unless really needed.
Let us know what you decide to do and how you are doing.

Don't be afraid to get a 3rd opinion also if that would make you more comfortable. You may want to consult another urologist for the 3rd opinion instead of another gyn.
