I was wondering what it is like after having your uterus and both ovaries removed? Do you still experience the same symptoms associated with menopause afterwards or do the symptoms subside once the ovaries are not there to produce those hormones anymore? I have only one ovary and still my uterus. Last year after a pelvic sonogram and a trans-vaginal scan they found that I have one fibroid on the exterior of my uterus and multiple others internally within the uterus. If necessary I am considering a hysterectomy. I have to go for another pelvic sonogram/transvaginal scan this week to see what my uterus is up to these days; if those fibroids are any larger or what. My last period which ended two days ago was the worst one to date. I had such terrible gas and bloating and bad lower backache. I bled more heavily this time than I have ever done before and I thought to myself if this is a result of those fibroids, I will definitely be opting for a hysterectomy because I do not want to bleed heavily like that every month until I finally go into menopause. Just wondering from those of you who have had a complete hysterectomy, do you still get the menopause symptoms afterwards. Are they any better or are they worse?
