hysterectomy - I was scheduled for an ablation and apparently have surpassed the requirements and moved right on to surgery. 1.) I'm NOT ever wanting another child - ever ever. 2.) I'm okay with hysterectomy, but doctor wants to do the uterus and leave the ovaries....citing if they come out I will only be exchanging one problem for others ie: hormone replacement therapy and another um unmentionable problem. Anyone have thoughts on leaving the ovaries or did anyone think like me and say "If you're going in - you need to get it all now, I'm not doing this again in 10 years at 55." He said he agreed, but reluctantly to do the entire thing, and then told me to plan on being out of work for 3 -6 weeks? OMG - I have one week of vacation coming and while I thought I would use it to travel to OHIO - now I'm using it on this....three weeks? Really? OMG that is too much. Anyone get back up and working in shorter time? I'm doing office work - no heavy lifting. Just sitting and hitting a 10 key and typing. Thoughts and advice appreciated.
