I once had a Dr. suggest a hysterectomy to me....because of all of the pain I have from my PCOS. She said, "Perhaps we should just remove the offending organs"! I was alarmed and shocked! Also - I have had family members say, "Well - your 43 years old and probably won't be having kids now...why don't you just have a hysterectomy to stop the pain and symptoms of your PCOS". I find all of these comments to be rather insensitive. Has anyone ever heard of PCOS going away with a hysterectomy? Would a lot of the symptoms still persist (Insulin Resistance, Hypertension, High DHEA and High Testosterone, etc).....or would this all go away? along with the pain? I also know someone who just had a partial hysterectomoy where they saved one ovary so she wouldnt go into a premature change of life. I was just curious if anyone out there knows much about hysterectomy's (partial or full). I am not a fan of them at all - but I may have endometriosis as well....and may be possibly facing one if advanced endometriosis is detected. To be honest...I'm frightened about the whole scenario. Has anyone out there been faced with something like this? Would my PCOS symptoms go away if I ended up having to have one?
