juanab-

You are absolutely correct. It has been awhile since my surgery and forgot to mention the bilateral oophorectomy. I had a total hysterectomy AND a bilateral oophorectomy which I believe was the main cause of my problems.

Readers:
If at all possible, KEEP YOUR OVARIES INTACT. There are a lot of things we can do without, but I believe that the ovaries are very important in achieving the quality of life you deserve.

On a bright note, I also neglected to mention that my "curly" daughter had a vaginal hysterectomy due to endometriosis and fibroids (uterus only) and she is doing very well. The endo had not destroyed her ovaries yet. She may still lose one, but she will always have a healthy one.
