I had a hysterectomy 2 years ago. I had one for my heavy cycles, etc. I had the total hysterectomy,bso. I would not do it if I had it to do over. I got infection from the surgery and had 2 additional surgeries. I was in the hospital for 21 days. Now I have to take estrogen for hotflashes. I would never advise someone to do this uless it was life threatening!
