I have a stuck left ovary attached to the back of my womb, ovarian cysts and either a fibroid/ adeymosis. I'm frightened of having a hysterectomy for three reasons. (At my last hospital appointment, I felt as though i was being advised a hysterectomy was my only option)
1, it will not 'cure' my condition.
2, I have a phobia of general anaesthetic.
3, I am concerned that a hysterectomy may trigger depression or anxiety.(I have had both in the past)
As there is so much experience amongst us, I wondered if any of you would have any suggestions on other treatment options? I am 42 and my main symptoms are back pain, bowel problems, ovarian pain and heavy bleeding.
Any advice would be appreciated.
