I have lost my mum, my dad and my sister to cancer ( non were related) my mum had just been diagnosed with ovarian cancer when she died, and I have been told I am at a higher risk of getting this ( probably after menopause).
For the last 18 months I have suffered with the most horrendous periods and so after lots of discussions I opted to have a full hysterectomy with ovaries removed at the same time. I went to hospital yesterday to sign consent forms and meet the surgeon ( not the consultant I have been seeing) She asked why I was going for full hysterectomy when I can just have my ovaries and tubes removed? She said it was a much smaller op and quicker recovery but now I have no idea what to do! I was thrown into turmoil over this so she said I can tell her on day of op what I want to do ( 10 days time) but now I have so many questions.......
Has anyone else had just the ovaries and tubes removed? Any information would be gratefully received
