Re: To have a hysterectomy or to not?

I cancelled my hysterectomy and did UFE and a myomectomy to get rid of fibroids. It's been over a year and I haven't looked back.
Explore all of your options. Since you can't go back in time it's best to be sure about your decision.
A hysterectomy should always be the last option. And while it sounds great to be rid of the problems today, the long term effects can last a lifetime.
For a big eye opener, Google medscape
Long term effects of hysterectomy on the aging patient.
If this doesn't make you think hard nothing will. This isn't a scare website but medscape is where physicians go the get information on all sorts of things.
I never saw this article but was smart enough to pressure my surgeon to give me the good and bad. Without gaurantees of a good outcome I cancelled my surgery. My surgeon fully supported my decision and worked with my radiologist to come up with a workable plan. My surgeon was with me during my embolization and my radiologist was keeping a watchful eye during my myomectomy. So I had the very best care. When I woke up in recovery they were both there all excited to tell me everything went well.
In the end we must do what we think is best. But knowing all of your options makes it much easier.
Best wishes to all of you.
