I have had issues with ovarian cysts for almost 7 years now. I finally found a doctor that gave a shit enough to do something about it after we found out that I also had a tumor on my uterus. I am supposed to go have surgery next Tuesday to get the cyst and the tumor removed. After all of the issues I have had, I just want a hysterectomy and get it over with but the doctor says that since I am only 25, he will not do a hysterectomy. Does anyone have any advice as to what I can tell the doctor to convince him to do it? I really do not think that just removing the cyst and tumor will eliminate my problems. I think that the cyst will continue to come back. My mom eventually had a hysterectomy after having problems with cysts for so long. Please help me out. I am tired of being in pain and randomly bleeding. I can't enjoy sex anymore because of the constant pain. I just want to get it over with and move on with my life. Even if I can just convince him to remove the left ovary which has been 99% of the problem I would be ecstatic. Thanks for any advice in advance!Answer Question
I think (although I am no expert) that it's all about hormones. You don't want to go on hormone replacement at such a young age. I think cancer may be a problem caused by hormone replacement. So why not take one step at a time since a hysterectomy is very invasive & not a simple surgery. You could always get a second opinion too. That is what I would do. GL.

I had a hysterectomy at 36. Cancer. I had everything removed. I kid with my husband and say technically, I'm not female anymore. There were pros and cons. I would go with what the doc says, and give it a chance.
