Removing ovaries with vaginal hysterectomy

I am scheduled for a TVH on July 8--fibroids (complete with "fibroidade"), abnormal bleeding, comples hyperplasia. Although I'll be 56 at time of surgery my doctor agrees I can keep my ovaries. She feels that even when they stop producing estrogen they provide other benefits.
Until a few months ago, much to everyone's surprise, I was still having monthly periods, although I was bleeding heavily due to polyps. These were removed during a D & C, and now I have light bleeding with no pattern whatsoever.
For the last few days I have been experiencing ovarian pain and have requested an ultrasound so we know what's what before the surgery. I hope to have the ultrasound done next week. If the results show anything suspicious, or even if not and this pain persists I may want my doctor to remove the one ovary.
I would love to hear from any of the princesses who had one or both ovaries removed along with a TVH. My doctor is not a fan of lap assists and so she may want to convert me to a TAH. We'll know more after the ultrasound any my next visit.

Removing ovaries with vaginal hysterectomy


I had a TVH with possible ovary removal, but did not have to have the ovaries removed. I asked my doctor if he would have to take the ovaries laproscopically if they needed to go, and he said he would be able to reach them vaginally. A friend of mine, who is a nurse, told me (after the fact) that her gyn had a hysterectomy and ovaries removed vaginally and bled heavily from having the ovaries removed vaginally (apparently, they are pretty high up). She was furious with HER gyn that had performed the surgery that way! So I was REALLY glad that I didn't have to have my ovaries removed.

It would warrant asking some questions in advance, for sure.

Good luck with your decision and surgery.

Removing ovaries with vaginal hysterectomy

Hi. I had a TVH and A&P repair and also had my ovaries and tubes removed vaginally at the same time. Thank goodness I was asleep at the time...I cannot imagine how they get to them that way, but they do. No lap was needed. It can be done!

Removing ovaries with vaginal hysterectomy

Hi, Chuckies,

I had a TVH/BSO, and my surgery was uncomplicated. I had a normal recovery. I've been on HRT since arriving in the recovery room. It's been eleven months since my surgery, and I feel great!

Please feel free to contact me, if you have questions.

Best wishes,

Removing ovaries with vaginal hysterectomy

I had a TVH/BSO on 4-16-02 and everything went great. I haven't felt this good in many, many years. I have to keep reminding myself that I just had major surgery a little over 3 weeks ago so that I don't over do it.
