2nd opinion

Hey lady's! I am happy to report that I went for my 2nd opinion today, I drove into the city (Boston) to meet with a uro/gyno. I got lost and arrived 10 mins. late. They took me right in, and he had already gone through all my records and knew everything about my conditions and treatments. The only exam he did was to check the size of my uterus because it wasn't in my records. He said that my uterus was the size of a 3 month pregnant woman.

I was so relieved when he told me that my Dr.s are doing exactly what he would do. He said that I really don't have any other options but to go through with the hysto. He said I have been through too much already and it was time to end it all. He suggested that I have everything removed (ovaries and cervix) because of the amount of Endo that I have, he said if I leave anything that the Endo will find a way to attack it. He said that I made the right decision to put off my IC treatment till after surgery. He said he has even seen cases where the bladder reverses itself after a hyster.

So, I am very relieved! I knew it was the right decision, but it helped to be reasured. Thank you lady's for all the advice!

2nd opinion

Hi Dove, It is great to hear that you went for a second opinion. I don't think anyone should consent to a hysterectomy until they have at least gotten a second opinion to be certain that it is the only recourse left.

Good luck to you.~Moonchime
