I am currently waiting to see a second gynaecologist to confirm I am of sound mind and body to request a hysterectomy. I can't wait for this to be done as it will end nearly 30 years of pain, misery and nightmare planning for holidays. After being told we would not be able to have children, the 2 other treatment options will not enable us to have children, but are not guaranteed to solve the problem like a hysterectomy will. Has anyone else had to fight and push for the procedure? I am 41 years old and know it is the right choice for me and my family.
