About the total hysterectomy at 47
i am going to have a surgery on jan 8th. i`ve been worrying after the surgery about all of the symtoms i am going to have. As i understand from my doctor...my ovaries still ok but my tube is all twisted and it gives me pain once every 2 months. so i am going to remove it and my doctor sugested to remove the ovaries at the same time to prevent future problem. should i go remove my ovaries at this age?
You do not have to remove your ovaries if they are normal no matter what your age.
