Pre op Today

Pre op is today this afternoon. My gyn is probly going to be overwelmed as I have about 1 page front and back with questions. LOL. But I need to get these answered. Right?

Can anyone think of anything last minute I should be asking?

My lavh is scheduled for Monday.
I think today is the day I need to tell gyn if I am keeping ovaries or not. And I am still up in the air kind of. I thought I had made the decision but the gyn kept saying something like I will have no pain if ovaries come out. I don't know why she is saying that. Well she said If I was doing the hysto for pain, which is one reason, main reason besides adenomyosis and endo, that I should take ovaries out. What do ovaries have to do with pain? I know my left one used to cause sharp pains. but it hasn't really lately. Am I in denial. Can I keep one ovarie and not have to do hrt? OR less possibibilit to?

Guess I don't have all questions written down

Re: Pre op Today

Absolutely Right!
It is your body and you need all your questions answered. I make a list no matter what medical visit I may have, I may forget something and most Drs. are in a rush to get through the visit.

Find out the pros & cons of removing your Ovaries if that is you want. Just be comfortable with whatever decision you make.

I was post menopausal when I had my hysterectomy, so ovaries were not an issue. But what I can say is that I have now taken the fear of ovarian cancer away.

Good luck and a speedy recovery.

Re: Pre op Today

My doctor didn't want to take my ovaries because I'm only 35 and she didn't want to throw me into menopause, and after having a Lupron shot and experiencing hot flashes, I really don't want that either. However, my right ovary is constantly causing me pain so our plan is to take the right and leave the left. I hope you feel confident with whatever decision you make. Good Luck!

Re: Pre op Today

DO you know, if i keep one ovary and take out one, would we still have to do hrt with only one ovarie? Or will we still not be in menopause with one ovarie?
I left still undecided.

Re: Pre op Today

I know women who only have one ovary and do not take HRT! Your Dr. is the best one to answer that for you.
