I have a daughter...

I have a daughter age 40 – one child. She is being asked to consider surgery that would take out her uterus and fallopian tubes. They do not want to take the ovaries because they say it would disrupt her hormones. She is having an extreme amount of blood flow not during her regular menstrual cycle. It is very painful. She had exploratory surgery in the past for endometriosis, but none was found. They are suggesting she be checked for this again. She also was diagnosed with HPV in the past. She was scraped and five years ago there were no signs of any problems. She also just got off of powerful blood thinners because she had developed blood clots in the lungs from her birth control medicine. My question is – should we do as they suggested at the top of this letter and if so, how risky is it?

Doctor's Assistant: In general, how has your health been lately?

Good

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

She is on high blood pressure medicine.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
