I will be having a hysterectomy in November (no date set yet) and I have been told I am a good canadate for the da Vinci assisted hysterectomy. I am 38yrs old, 5ft and 270lbs so my OBgyn has suggested I look into this since he is concerned about my health and recovery(because of my size) if he were to do a abdnomanol hysterectomy. I live in Washington State so if there is anyone out there that has some thoughts, I would very much like to talk.

Thank you,

sounds like a good idea, have you considered going for a second opinion as to the type of surgery and risks? which ever one you decide is best, may God be with you and your surgery be a smooth one

You sound just like me, I don't have my date yet but I will find out on the 21st of November. My dr. will be doing a LSH on me, due to my size and past health problems. Here's hoping for the best for each of us.
