Hello Ladies,

Here is my dilemma. I am scheduled for a TVH/BSO on May 8. I am smack dab in the middle of menopause. I am having the surgery due to terrible bleeding, clots, cramping and bloating. Usually I can't leave my house even. I had an ablation in November of 08' along with a depo shot. It only worked for about three months. Then the periods started up again and just as bad as before. Here is my dilemma. I haven't had a period since the first week of March. I do have daily cramping that is almost constant that I take Advil for. Should I go ahead and have the surgery or wait to see if I have anymore periods. No fibroids have every showed up on ultrasound and at one time my MD suspected I had endo but was never tested for it. Since it takes so long to get the hysterectomy scheduled I hate to cancel it and then the next week the whole thing start all over again. My gut tells me to go ahead with it but I still have that little person in the back of my head questioning it.

Re: Dilemma

If you're not sure, you should get another opinion. I couldn't have made it through all of this if I were not convinced this was my best option.

Re: Dilemma

lmhs1935 I would seriously discuss this with your gyno and family physician as well. Seek a second opinion if still in doubt.
For me, there was never a question and I have been very happy with my decision, but I understand your dilema as well. I would really encourage you to discuss it with your gyno, family doc and maybe even get a 2nd opinion. Good luck!

Re: Dilemma

lmhs1935 - your reasons for surgery are the same as mine. The day I was given a date for my hysterectomy, it had been 9 weeks since my last period, and boy was I pleased.
That was 4 weeks ago, and since then I have had two

Hours after I walked away from the doc, I started to bleed!And for some very VERY odd reason, a painless(compared to others)and light period OOOhhh er I thought, this is the biz! Wouldn't mind periods like this!
And now another period , unfortunately, a normal one for me. Pain, flooding, clots. NO way do I want to do this every month for very possibly another ten years.......

You may not have had a period since March, but believe you me, the minute you cancel your surgery........sods law and all that.......
