Update: Just had a supracervical hysterectomy and BSO november 12th. Decided to go ahead with being proactive. I am not sure I would have just based on my likelihood of developing Ovarian CA but also bc of hx of endometriosis, ovarian cysts, heavy periods, mid cycle pain, etc.
I am feeling guilty that now my girls are kind of in limbo when they get older as to what their risks will be. I just did not want them to go through losing a mom at a young age as I did....obviously that can still happen some other way.
But seem to be healing well and will soon start premarin at lowest dose or lower dose. Thanks!
