i amm 44 and had my tubes tied at 23..my son is 25 and my stepdaughters are 21 and 18... my gyn wants to try several procedures to lessen my bleeding and this week he is going into my uterus with a camera..there are also unknown cysts/fibroids on one of my ovaries... Personally i just want to get a hysterectomy and end all of the pain and suffering... does anyone have an opinion good or bad about the hysterectomy process,and after effects?
