I have PCOS - should I keep ovaries or not?

I am hoping to have my surgery on Oct 29th, don't know yet. I'm confused if I should keep my ovaries or not. I have PCOS, anyone else out there that has this? I know the surgery won't cure it, but I have pre-cancerous cells, cervical dysplasia, horrible pain, been bleeding since May. And fed up. Any insight?

I have PCOS - should I keep ovaries or not?

Elmer Jo, I was in your shoes last year on this exact date. PCOS, non stop bleeing since the beginning of May, fed up, totally wiped out physically and emotionally. I kept my ovaries and cervix and the surgery went well and just 2 weeks later I was feeling so much better. I had to have 3 blood transfusions in the hospital because I was so weak from 5 months of bleeding, but that is the only complication. According to my Dr, having PCOS even with pre-cancerous cells is not an automatic reason to remove the ovaries. We discussed this at length, and even though I was 44, I chose to keep mine.

Good luck!
