Before a Hysterectomy is Scheduled – Ask these Questions

Before you schedule a hysterectomy to potentially relieve your symptoms, take some time to explore the procedure, your surgeons expertise and ask yourself these questions:

  • Have I tried all the alternative treatments?
  • Are my symptoms so unbearable as to make my life a misery?
  • Will the operation relieve all my symptoms?
  • Will there be any unexpected consequences?
  • Do I still want to have children?
  • What will happen if I decide not to have a hysterectomy?

By working through this list of concerns and questions you may discover that now is not the time for surgery but to continue to try alternative treatments first. AND always get a second opinion from a specialist in your field of diagnosis.
