Totally off topic....hysterectomy ...remove ovaries or not..advice sought
I have large fibroids which are causing considerable pain. I am going to be given hormone injections to shrink them which will stop periods and make me feel menopausal. Having the injections for 3 months to shrink fibroids and see if pain eases to just check it is fibroids causing the pain. Consultant will then offer hysterectomy and asked how I feel about losing ovaries too due to the risk of cancer and other problems that could develop with them later. I thought I wanted to keep them, there's nothing wrong and to me they give me the hormone that makes me a woman. He said they won't be working much longer so consider it. I would really appreciate advice from anybody who has gone through this as I am at a loss as to what to do.
