After having a hysteroscopy and discovering two large submucous fibroid tumors, my Dr. has given me two options. I can do nothing and continue to have almost continous bleeding, even though I'm on BC pills to regulate my periods, or have a Classic Intrafacial Semm Hysterectomy (complete laparoscopic hysterectomy). The reason he is recommending this type of surgery is becaue I have had 2 C-sections and possibly have scar tissue that would prevent a vaginal hysterectomy. He is giving me the option of having my ovaries removed, but is recommending it due to the fact that I am 45 years old. From what I understand this is a somewhat new procedure and would like to get all of the input I can from anyone who has had this surgery. I would also like your opinion on pills vs. patch for HRT.
Anyone taking testosterone to improve your libido? My husband is concerned about that one!

I don't know about the c.i.s.h. procedure. Perhaps someone will come along who does.
There is no right or wrong answer about keeping your ovaries. In younger women when the ovaries are healthy it is defintely a good idea. At the 45+ age group many doctor's feel we may only have a short time left of natural hormone production so it is a good idea to take them. There are some new studies that indicate the ovaries may still produce some benefit into and after menopause years. Of course each person is different and how the hysterectomy will effect your ovaries is impossible to predict.
If you would like more information as you make the decision here is a link you might find helpful (or more confusing, sorry)
There is also much information on HRT in the Hormone Jungle
Good luck and keep us posted.
