Why are doctors reluctant to do a hysterectomy on 68 year

Customer Question

Why are doctors reluctant to do a hysterectomy on 68 year old woman who has fibroid tumors and has had three D&Cs each two years apart?
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: Yes, I have. I have begun bleeding heavily again and the ultra sound said that the lining of my uterus is 7.3 thick and I will probably have to have another D&C.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No female problems.

in this case I would definitely recommend the hysterectomy. You should get a second opinion from another doctor.
