New to board, and abbreviations ...

Hi --

I am new to the board and some of the abbreviations I 'get' but then others I am clueless. Even when the doctor wrote down on the surgical order TAH --> Total Abdominal Hysterectomy but what is BSO? I am figuring by context the O means ovary but what about the B and the S <-- sorry that looks sort of 'strange'.
