Saw my doctor doctor and have set date for surgery on 2/25. I will be having laparoscopic surgery with removal of uterus, cervix and fallopian tubes through vagina. They will decide about the ovaries when they are in there- depends on what they look like and how big my fibroids are. Dr. said new studies report that ovaries provide necessary hormones for up to 10 years after menopause, so if they can leave them in it is better for the patient. I am glad this is it- just want it to be over. I have been having horrible bloating for the last 3 days- I look and feel pregnant. Dr is not sure why I have this. Anyone else with this symptom?
