I have just been told today by My GYN that I have a uterine prolapse. Its stage one but getting worse. She has recomended a total hysterectomy removing my uterus and cervix. I'm OK with that as I don't anymore children. I've had several painfull cysts on my left ovary but She said She wanted me to try to keep both, because of my age.
I am 28 have had 1 child,1 tubal pregancy, 2 medically necessary abortions and finally my tubes tied. I've been married 6 months and only able to have sex 4 times this is ruining my sex life (painfull and spoting afterward), not to mention its pressing on my bladder and I can't even use a tampon anymore. I was even spotting after My OB giving me a very gentle exam.
My questions are..
1. Is a abdominal hysterectomy better than the Vaginal one ? Is it true the vaginal one will make sex uncomfortable after ?
2. I just started a new job and stand all day, is this safe until surgery?
3. Will 1 ovary work as good as 2 if I have the bad one removed?
