Re: appendix out also???

I asked my DR about that. She said she would only remove my appendix if there appeared to be a problem, never remove a healthy organ for no reason. She always operates with a general surgeon just in case any thing else needs attention (such as appendix removal) and then the general surgeon would tend to that.

Re: appendix out also???

I asked my doctor to remove my appendix, he said, "No." Less than a year later I needed it taken out.

Re: appendix out also???

I had mine taken out at the same time as my hysterectomy. It was only removed because it was covered with endo, so it needed to come out. I have heard of some surgeons taking it out regardless of whether or not it is healthy. It is standard in some cases to help prevent a future surgery down the road. I guess every is different.
