Hi, I m 45 yrs and this is time of menopause now i m getting some pain during periods and odctor did sonography and found febroid on uterus wall and suggested for hestectomy.Is it a better option to take or i can wait for few months?
I would not have a hysterectomy just because there is a fibroid. But if the fibroid is huge, causing severe problems such as heavy or constant bleeding, and inoperable, then I would consider a partial hysterectomy. If your doctor is suggesting a hysterectomy more or less "just because," then check with another doctor. Fibroids can be removed, if they are small and not embedded too deeply.
