I just wondered if anyone knows the rationale for having a hysterectomy alongside cyst removal? My cyst was found by ultrasound on 18 January. At that point it was 28x24x20cms so already huge. They did bloods and an MRI and I had an urgent 'two week wait' referral to a gynaecologist. All came back ok although between the ultrasound and MRI it had grown some more in just 28 days. My op is scheduled for next week but having just attended my pre surgical assessment the nurse said my file had me down for a total hysterectomy and both ovaries removed. This is the first time this has been mentioned so I have requested and been offered an extra appointment with the Consultant later this week. I am a bit confused why they have decided on this course, and also why they didn't tell me. It was only the nurse mentioning it in passing which highlighted it.
has anyone had a similar experience? If it is purely precautionary should I argue against it? I am pre menopausal and do not want a surgical menopause as
I understand the side effects can be quite severe and long lasting. Any advice much appreciated before I go to hospital on Thursday.
