  • My feeling is the more they take out the few cancers you can get. Personally I'd let them take it all and both boobs - but that's just me!

  • I would definitely get a second opinion and find out ALL of your options. So many times doctors repeat unnecessary operations and they're finding that they don't have to or that there are other alternatives. I have heard that you can go into early menopause and that's not good either. Best of luck and I'm praying you find a way to end that pain!!

  • I'd say yes!you don't want them to start having problems later and have to go through surgery again. I would let them take them.

  • I think that if your in pain and in discomfort then have them remover the whole insides. Have them just fixed you right up while they already have you opened up. Good Luck momma

  • Get as much info as you can before you let them take anything that can't be put back!!! Without ovaries, you WILL go into menopause. You can maybe just have the fibroid/s sis did. Know exactly what you are giving up, and what you are getting into, before you decide. Good Luck! :-)
