Mine blamed my age on le<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ving my overies but I don't want another dam surgery on my stomach.
Avatar n tn HI, The greatest concern of le<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ving the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cervix</span> behind after <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span> is stump an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>cer in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cervix</span> that has been left behind. However the possibility of this is very less. Discuss with an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r Doctor. Hope this helps.
420771 tn?1234346201 I had a partial <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span> (uterus and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cervix</span>) in July and returned to the doctor 3 weeks later for recheck and complaint of green discharge, continuous since surgery. The doctor at that time told me this was normal and to return if it continued. 2 weeks later I returned because the amount of green discharge had increased, accompanied by a fever of 100 degrees and become worrisome. They ran blood work at the time and said my white count was 26,000, but was, again, nothing to worry about.
1809377 tn?1316523928 I am seeing my GYN tomorrow to make an apt to an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> a partial <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span>. I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> seen a lot of the posts out there, but I would like to know what I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> experiece post up... recovery time... discomforts... how long will it take for my body to get back to my new normal self, how long it will take for me to an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> sex again (it's been over 5 months)!!!
Avatar f tn I thought a partial <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span> was just my uterus, le<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ving the ovaries intact and just found out that my doctor took my cervix also. She never once told me that she was going to do that. She in fact, pushed to take the ovaries, but I told her no. Now I'm afraid I will never enjoy sex again because of my dryness and I feel cheated out of a decision that I thought I made with all the knowledge and research that I did do. I don't know how to handle this.
602473 tn?1235856758 I am 19 days from having my scheduled <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span>. It is supposed to be Lap surgery with one surgeon &amp; also with my GYN Oncologist to make the incision if he finds it needs to be done. I am having my uterus, tubes, &amp; ovaries removed. The cervix will remain. The reason for this operation: I had irregular bleeding &amp; after several trans vag ultrasounds &amp; 10 days of Provera, my Uterus lining was still around 18mm.

453069 tn?1208952107 My rt ovary had a cystadenoma described as the size of an 8 lb baby or a small watermelon and my lt ovary also had a much smaller cyst (about tangerine sized). an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> help me better understand the benfits of le<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ving my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cervix</span> and also what correlation does ovarian cysts an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> with diabetes or where I might learn more about this connection?
398893 tn?1201319307 I had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span> done in 2004 because of Endometriosis and they left one ovary in and I was wanting to know, Is it possible that the endometriosis could come back into my one ovary?

Avatar n tn I am unaware of the reason for an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r hysterectomy, but if an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> need to an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> it make sure that the doctor takes an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cervix</span>. I had a partial with my doctor le<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ving one ovary(the other had to come out) and he also left my cervix. Since my surgery(in Nov) I am still having a period every month. From all the info left by ladies on this forum I am under the impression that leaving my cervix with some of the uterus tissue on top of it is the reason why.
Avatar f tn I saw my obgyn today and was told in order to relieve my menstrual cramping the next step would be a laparoscopic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span>. I had an oblation 2 years ago and it wasn't helping anymore. I was wondering if i will still get my period, he said he would be leaving my ovaries in.
Avatar n tn I had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span> le<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ving ovaries and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cervix</span> in feb and im too having similar problems. Disharge on and off, bleeding on and off, pain during intercourse, even bleeding sometimes after. It almost appears im having mini periods each month....had u/sound today and she only found 1 ovary, so i wonder what is going. I had a pap to test my cells last week, not heard back, im gonna call tomm.
351724 tn?1267540618 Yes...regardless ..they take everything out anyway an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r uterus, ovaries and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cervix</span> UNLESS an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>rs is not a radical hysterectomy just partial that's different story. Sunes.
Avatar f tn He has suggested a partial <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span> to remove the uterus and then repair the bladder and rectal area. My concern is leaving the ovaries and fallopian tubes to futher increase the chances of ovarian an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>cer. I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> also an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> had a history of abnormal pap smears.What do I need to be concerned about?
Avatar n tn according to the New England Journal of Medicine: "Complications of Subtotal hysterectomy: Menstrual-like vaginal bleeding. after subtotal hysterectomy, about 7% of women an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> bothersome cyclic bleeding. This happens when uterus-like cells remain on the outside of the cervix after the uterus is removed." (a subtotal hysterectomy is when the body of the uterus but not the cervix, is removed).
Avatar f tn Well, it would seem that a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span> is on the table for discussion, according to my provider. I used to think that I wouldn't care if they just cut the whole messy contraption out, but now that it's a serious consideration, I'm having second thoughts. My "condition" isn't even clear, so I'm trying to weigh my options and other thay a hysterectomy, perhaps an ablation sounds good. They're telling me that I'm an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>ng for an ablation, but not an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>ng for a hysterectomy?
489228 tn?1291535054 Shelly, I am also scheduled for a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span> and bladder repair. Whether the ovaries are removed is totally up to me. My original thought was "remove it all" so I don't an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> to worry but after researching I'm thinking about leaving my ovaries. I was recently remarried and I'm concerned about the exact same thing and worried about weight gain and libido. I am however miserable 2 weeks out of the month with several large fibroids and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> had 3 bouts of cervical prean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>cer.
Avatar f tn about 18 years ago I had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span> because of Endometriosis. They removed uterus, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cervix</span>, left ovary and both fallopian tubes. all they left me was my right ovary. For a few years now I been having problems with a mass on my right ovary. It measures 5 x 6 cm. I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> alot of pain, the even makes my right pelvis bone hurt, the pain goes into my groin and down the front of my leg. My groin also has a large lump in it.
7922729 tn?1395415825 On Jan. 24th, 2014 I had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span>. My uterus was removed, but they left my ovaries and cervix. Three days after surgery my bladder became paralyzed and I was unable to urinate on my own. The doctor inserted a foley catheter for 3 days to "let my bladder rest". Before leaving that day a urine culture was taken, which grew into Klebsiella. I was put on a round of a/B and meds to treat the symptoms.
Avatar n tn I've had 3 OB/GYN's who an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> suggested a partial <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span> (le<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ving the ovaries). They suspect fibroids as the cause because of an ultrasound I had. I am worried about uterine an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>cer as I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> all the symptoms. If this was caused only from a fibroid would a hysterectomy be appropriate? Or could the bleeding stop eventually on its own if was just caused from a fibroid? I don't want to go through an unnecessary surgery, but I do want to know without a doubt if its an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>cer or not.
Avatar f tn Unless an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> had serious problems with endometriosis, fibroids or other problems with the uterus or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cervix</span>, I don't think a doctor or an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> should think about adding <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span> to an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r procedure. The BSO (or just cyst removal with possibly one ovary/tube if it's damaged by that big cyst) should be enough unless there's more in an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r medical history that warrants a hysterectomy. It's not an easy decision.
Avatar n tn I am 42 and going tomorrow to book in for an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span>, i an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> endo and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> had numerous ops to remove this. On my last op 8 mnths ago they tld me i ca not an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> any more ops and i must an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> a hysterectomy and leave in my ovaries. I really do not know what to do, i an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> my mom, auntie and cousin who all an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> had one and 2 friends who an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> said it was the best thing they had (they had a total).

1222892 tn?1312152424 this month I will try birth control I will see how I feel, but if my pain will continue I will an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> to an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span>.....it scares me...............i an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> no children................i got diagnosed with endo only year and half ago................my surgery was in stage 3....now I am maybe 4.....
Avatar n tn Id advise an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> to get one more opinion and if second doctor agrees get the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span> insist on laproscopic transvaginal one..sometimes they leave <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cervix</span> for support so an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> wont an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> any prolapse this is an especiall good option if overweight as prolapse risk increases.....If both ovaries are healthy its gonna be an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r call to leave both or one,,,,removal of tubes and ovaries is called a BSO not hysterectomy...
Avatar n tn Hello, I was wondering if any of an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> all an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> been put on hormones after a total <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span>. My doctor says there are too many risks and I don't need them...I am 38. I don't know what to expect here 2 weeks after surgery, I keep waiting for a hotflash or something weird to happen. :) What an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> happen if I don't take them? I've had nightmares of growing hair on my face or my voice getting manly. are my fears real? an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> anyone share their experience or knowledge about hormones?
Avatar n tn i am 22 yrs old and going the 11th of april for a histerectomy (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cervix</span>, uterus, and tubes {le<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ving overies}) i am now very worried since i an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> read a lot of what an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> all an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> written in here. i am trying to lose weight and do not want to gain weight and certainly do not want to lose my sexual desire or my o's. i was just wondering if any of an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> out there an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> had these problems and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> had the exact type of histerectomy as i am because maybe then i shouldn't go and get it done.
Avatar f tn I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> had the urodynamics test which shows that my uretha struggles to release and is le<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ving behind around 200ml of urine each time. I also an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> 2x7mm lesions in the uterus and apparently a very thick uterine lining. Lastly, I also an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> cervical eroption. My gynocologist has said the best option would be to surgically repair the bowel and bladder but he also said it would be more successful to remove my uterus and cervix as well.
