Re: Confused??

It's really dependent on the reasoning, and then you have to decide which is best for you? Why does your doctor want to take them? Why doesn't your surgeon?

Re: Confused??

I can see why your Dr. has suggested they come out.
Did the surgeon explain why he wants to leave them?

I'm 47 and have the same option. My decision is to leave them as there is nothing indicating they are not healthy. If my Dr./Surgeon finds otherwise, we have agreed she will take them.

I made this decision based on family history, after research and asking others here. In short, for me at my age, I felt the benefits of keeping them outweighed the potential risks of losing them.

Al I can really say is weigh all the facts and your pros and cons before deciding - then cross your fingers.

I suggest that you go over to our endo forum and ask your question there. We have a very experienced hostess, Weiser, who is extremely knowledgeable about endo. I believe she kept her ovaries.

Re: Confused??

Hello there,

My surgery is November 16th. My doctor had initially said that I coud keep my ovaries but after examination by the surgeon, it was determined that because of how polycystic they are an the trouble they've caused in the past, they should go too. I thought that might be the case since they have been problematic. I wish you all the best.

I pray for you as I do for all of my Hyster Sisters.
