Having a hysterectomy. Doctor feels that I should have ovaries removed too, due to a very small spot (pre-cancerous) spot found at the top of my uterus. I am so confused about whether the ovaries are necessary. I have read about increase risk of Parkinsons and dementia. Anyone been through this?Answer Question

I think if you can leave the ovaries, it's better. That way you will still have your normal hormones floating around. If they take the ovaries they give you a supplemental for hormones.
My knowledge is minimal, but I would question why they want to remove the ovaries if there is only a small thing on your uterous.
