Specka, what's a bladder tack? Something to keep the bladder from prolapsing?

CP - really?

Juanab - how old were you?

These are all the things I've heard: sex feels dry, sex feels rough, sex hurts, orgasms are less enjoyable, orgasms are fewer, orgasms are weaker, orgasms are nonexistant, sexual arousal is gone, there is incontinence, there is pain, there is immediately menopause w/ or w/o ovaries, there are hematomas, there are fistulas, there is exhaustion, there is depression, there is organ propapse, there are follow up and corrective surgeries, there is regret, there is misery, there is celibacy, there is frigidity, there are suicidal ideations...

Ugh...

I can understand women w/ no options and terribe symptoms getting the hyst and being happy w/ the outcome if they were miserable before.

But I am losing about half a thimble-full of blood a day, most of which comes out at one time, and then I am done. It's barely anything, just an inconvenience. I have no pain or other symptoms. No idea where exactly it's coming from, what is causing it or if it will correct itself.

Someone told me I am trying to swat a fly w/ a cannonball...and I may live to regret that I was soooooo aggressive.

That I should see hyst only as an absolute last resort. Is it really that important to keep all my parts?? I was thinking I might lose a little in the way of sexual intensity but I would have more peace of mind (no cancer scares in the future) and freedom from periods and this abnormal bleeding.

Am I taking this too lightly?

(I'm still monitoring my condition and if it corrects itself before the H date, I will cancel.)
