Anyone have a hysterectomy after baby?

I am wanting to have a hysterectomy because a pap smear came back with something on it.  The women in my family also have a risk of uterine and cervical cancer.  Therefore with having 2 small children (second to be joining us within the week) I do not feel comfortable taking any risks with my life what so ever.  I was told by my hospital and Dr. that in the event that I have a c-section with baby they will be able to possibly tie my tubes (completely un-helpful what-so-ever!) but to have a hysterectomy I will have to wait until my 6th week of recovery to schedule my hysterectomy.  This to me doesn't make any sense.  Why should I have to heal from a c-section and/or vaginal birth and then go and have another surgery to heal from.  All with a brand new baby?

My doctor will do a hysterectomy at the same time as a c-section as long as it is planned before hand.

I might have to get one because of an abnormal par smear. I won't know for sure until my next doc appt
