24 and scheduled for hysterectomy 9/23

Ive known I would need a hysterectomy for 3 years the doctor wanted me to be alittle older because at the time I wasnt even able to consent to my tubes being tyed and he wanted me to make sure I was positive on having no more children. So the plan was to take everything but my left ovary and cervix as of Thursday I was told that my left ovary may need to go also they believe its shutting down and may now be damaged by the endometreosis but wont know til after they start the surgery. I was very comfrotable before with my up coming surgery now Im stressing that its a good possibility im gonna be 24 and in menopause after the surgery. Has anyone else gone thru this how did you deal with it? Should I see it as a possible blessing in disguise?

Re: 24 and scheduled for hysterectomy 9/23

Well this Thursday I have my TAH and I am going to be 26 in October. They will hopefully keep at least one of my overies but the other may have to go due to damage from an ectopic which has caused all my problems to begin with. I wish you the best of luck!!

Re: 24 and scheduled for hysterectomy 9/23

I had mine in Jan when I was 26 after severe bleeding following the birth of my twins. They tried to leave my left ovary, but they had to go back in and take it as well when the bleeding would not stop. Going through menopause at a young age isn't easy - no one around you understands. In my case I had no idea I would ever need this type of surgery. I gave birth, passed out, and woke up to find out I was in menopause. It was horrible. All I can say is do your research now. Know what issues you might have and how you will try to remedy them. My #1 example is with sex. The first few months things will seem fairly normal because your hormones are stored in your tissue. After that you may experience vaginal dryness - be aware of this and find out from your doc what you can do (I.e. with the endo, can you still use a vaginal estrogen?). Keep a vaginal moisturizer on hand. Start taking your supplements now because it will help your energy later. Look through the resources on here and be aware of how you might feel and what might happen. Don't let any of it scare you, just know that it could happen. For example, many of us have bloating and lose some hair post op.

I can tell you that at 7 months post op I am feeling very good. I have figure out my new body. I actually feel more confident, and I've accepted this new stage in my life. It may be hard at first, but you will get there too! Good luck everyone! It helps so much to know there are other young ones out there!

Re: 24 and scheduled for hysterectomy 9/23

I am 28- will be 29 by the time I have my surgery on sept 19th. I also have endo and ovarian cysts and fibroids and possible adeno...so, I am planning on having everthing taken out. It is a scary thought that I will be in menopause at such a young age- but I feel like if this surgery works I will have a much better quality of life than I do right now. I wil tell you though, if you haven't already checked out the endo forum on this website, you may want to. A hysterectomy is not ness. a cure for endo, it can continue to cause problems even after having uterus and ovaries removed if the surgeon does not get all the endo out. While this is scary, and somewhat discouraging news, I feel like everyone who has endo should at least realize this before they have a hysterectomy. That being said, I am still planning on having one. I have more than just the endo going on, but that has been the main problem for me, and has interfered with my life daily for the past 15 years. I wish you the best. You are definitely not alone here, there are lots of young women on this website going through the same things. Dont hesitate to reach out. We are here to help each other.

Re: 24 and scheduled for hysterectomy 9/23

I am just going by what my doctor told me but I would ask your doctor, my doctor said if he takes both ovaries you automatically go into menopause and even though he left my ovaries but took cervix and uterus I still go into menopause but with fewer symptoms as the ovaries continue to give you some estrogen, although they can stop working after the operation. so from what my doctor said yes you will be in menopause.

Re: 24 and scheduled for hysterectomy 9/23

Will you be having surgery with an endometriosis specialist? Will your doctor even allow you to use HRT if you are having a hysterectomy and oophorectomy because of endometriosis?

We do have an Endometriosis Support forum where you are welcome to post about your diagnosis. You will find many ladies there--both pre and post hysterectomy since a hysterectomy with/without an oophorectomy is not a cure for endometriosis. Some of the ladies there are dealing with HRT and an endometriosis diagnosis, others are dealing with surgical menopause and no HRT because of their endometriosis diagnosis.

Endometriosis in the picture complicates everything!
