Definition of Prefixes please

Sorry gals, I'm new to the site. What is the correct Prefix for me? I'm having just my Uterous removed on Dec. 9th. Ovaries & Cervix will stay. Not sure about the Fallopian tubes to be honest. Abdominal, horizontal bikini cut. I put SAH, but I'm not sure if that's correct.

Re: Definition of Prefixes please

These are the acronyms Hystersisters has on the website. (An additonal one is TLH - Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy).

TAH (total abdominal hysterectomy)
BSO (bi-lateral salpingo oopherectomy) ....removal of both tubes and ovaries
RSO (right ovary, tube removed) (LSO-left side removed)
TVH (total vaginal hysterectomy)
LAVH (laparoscopic assisted Vaginal hysterectomy)
LSH (Laparoscopic Supracervical Hysterectomy)
SAH (supracervical abdominal hysterectomy)
HRT (hormone replacement therapy
NHRT (natural hormone replacement therapy)

Fallopian tubes usually stay with the ovaries. I watched a "Dr. Oz" show recently, and it discussed the tubes, by coincidence. He said that the Europeans are starting to remove the tubes with hysterectomies now, because it reduces the chance of ovarian cancer. However it has not become commonplace in the United States, he stated.
