hysterectomy and overies removed What to expect

I am 30 years old. My uterus and both ovaries just removed. What will
my life be like now?. I am told hot flashes, hormone replacement,
mood swings, vaginal dryness, increased risks of health and mental problems,
may be my future.
Anyone who has lived a few years after this type
surgery please tell me what it is like? Thank you.

You may want to check out our hysterectomy community forum for answers to your questions.  I was fortunate in that I did not lose ovaries until after completing a natural menopause so I do not have the wisdom of experience to share with you.

Others have prevented early menopause by hormone replacement.  There's a patch that some have used with good results.  All the other symptoms you mentioned can be prevented with a good hormone replacement until you are closer to a natural menopause age.

It is almost two years since you posted your question. By now, you probably are doing very well.  One thing that too many women have found out after a hysterectomy is the need for a bladder suspension a few years later. That is what happened to me, and others I know. I believe the surgeon should tell his patient about that possibility prior to doing a hysterectomy. Women know to be concerned about  hormone replacement, but are never told of the possibility of future necessary surgery
