Need advice

I am schedule sept9 and I an so worried I'm making the wrong decision. I am 28 an have one child. I have endo, cervics enlarged and my uterus is retroverted( i think that what they call it). I have abnormal pap test when I was younger. My Dr. Had said I could try to have another child now and do it after but I'm not really even sure I can get pregnant with out having some type of survey. I don't really know if it's harder to try to have another child and can't then have the surgery or just go ahead and have the surgery. I don't know what to expect having the surgery. Everytime I google it it doesn't tell me much. So any advise would be highly appreciated

Re: Need advice

Hi there, I suffered constantly from puberty till having a hysterectomy 6 weeks ago (now aged 38)- having endo, polycystic ovaries and my uterus tilted the wrong way. I was lucky to have my first child (second pregnancy) following fertility treatment and I fell pregnant 2 1/2 years later - naturally with my second child. Following many many treatments to reduce pain & stop the bleeding from hormone pills, implants and the coil; having a number of laparoscopies to burn off/cut out the endo it was agreed by a private specialist that a hysterectomy would be my best solution. It was the best thing I have done for my health - though still recovering from surgery, I am not crippled over in pain. Even 4 days after the op, friends were commenting how much better I looked than just before the surgery. The decision of trying for another child before surgery is for you and your partner to decide. Speak to your doctor about all of your options and how to achieve what you want. Take care & good luck with all that you decide x

Re: Need advice

You might want to decided if you want to have another child first. Because once your uterus is out, there won't be any more children. It's a hard question to ask yourself, but take time to figure out what you really want. Adoption is also a possibility for building your family if you are ready to proceed but still would like more children.

Best of luck to you!
