My cancer was er and pr positive. Have any of you ladies voluntarily had a hysterectomy or just removed your ovaries just for the peace of mind knowing they can't start back up again? My Ono doesn't recommend " major surgery" . Thanks for your input.
I'm having one in may. I was triple positive. I am 44. Just had a routine pap and endometrial bx to make sure all is well. They recommend getting it all out even though I will b on tamoxifen for 10 years - one less place a cell can grow
My oncologist suggested that I may want to consider a hysterectomy so e time in the future, maybe 5 or so years from now. I am currently 52. He stated that there is no good way to really test for ovarian cancer and that if you've always had a negative PAP that uterine cancer probably won't show up on a PAP in the future. I may consider it when I'm a bit older. I've been through menopause.
