So, the follow up… I don’t have many fibroids inside the uterus but the walls of the uterus are so full of fibroid material that it’s now between 2x and 3x it’s normal size. I also have fibroids the uterus – attached. I’m very disappointed because I had hoped that the cysts would be easily removed. The doctor has said I realistically have two choices: I can live with it or I can have a hysterectomy. Neither choice is very appealing.
I have another follow up at the hospital on 30th April to discuss all the possible side effects and to help me finally make a decision. I’ve started talking to Helios about the choices and he is very supportive – with whatever I decide.
These are the questions I have for my next appointment:
- Will I still be able to have an orgasm after the hysterectomy?
- My husband is very well endowed. I don’t have problems accommodating him now. Will I after the hysterectomy?
- Do I have to worry about vaginal prolapse?
- Where my organs will end up after the removal of my uterus?
- What is the best way to eliminate risk of ectopic pregnancy? Will the fallopian tubes be removed?
- Would it be a good idea to continue my birth control tablets – bearing in mind I have PCOS and the recent surgery found no active endometriosis lesions?
I have to ask you, is there anything else I need to be aware of? What issues have you encountered? Any input that you may have will be gratefully appreciated!
