Update: Had the surgery

  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!

Hope you are feeling well and getting better everyday.

I was recently at a conference and met someone who had both a total hysterectomy and double mastectomy.  

Hang in there!!!!
