My opinion is that I would never advise someone to have a surgery if they refuse to have transfussions and the doctor may think they may be needed. But that is just my opinion. I think this is something you really need to talk out with your doctor and I would suggest you get a second opinion.
If you are bleeding that hard, and you are finished having children and you are most to menopause I would seriously think about having the hysterectomy. If you can hang in there until you have gone thru menopause I would do that. You have to weight the pro's and con's. Its the best thing I ever did and I think 98% of all women who have had hysterectomy will tell you the same thing. Good luck. Also you don't have to wait if you keep your ovaries. Have it doen, you will be glad you did........it takes many weeks to recover from the tiredness but it is way worth it!
If you are not willing to have blood if you should need it, I would have to advise you against surgery of any kind. Thats your choice, but I would not have surgery were I you and have these ideas. No.
YOU said your religion would not allow you to have a blood transfusion. So I said if thats the case you should not have the surgery, because thats a big question they will ask prior to your surgery honey. I am sorry you did ot understand that. Take a deep breath.
By the way I may well have medical credentials and how would you know? You are very rude. I was trying to help you. Maybe you should try mental health board dear.
Sorry just had to put my 2 cents in - LOL
YOU are turning it into a religious discussion - everyone can see that. I can also see this wasn't the only post where you stirred things up a bit.
You said there are **"countless others that do NOT believe in Blood Transfusions what would die under your regime. lol"**..... WELL, others WITHOUT blood transfusions would ALSO die.
You said **"IF it is at the point of me needing blood or die... I choose death"** ..... if so, and you have children and a husband, you would leave them behind and rather choose death?
You said **"FYI isnt there any medical doctors that are qualified to answer my questions on these forums? I dont want lay persons with no medical credentials. thank you."**..... YES there are medical doctors on these forums - Go to the "Ask the Doctor" forums. You were the one that posted in THIS forum to the "Medical Community" not the "Ask the Doctors" forum, so why be so rude?
Thanks Princess, I meant to mention Expert Board and forgot. You make some very valid points also.
