I had a second opinion with another obgyn and he will only repair my bladder or do the other procedure as the other one.

Hi, Susan Cody
Thank you for your support. I am in much relief because I had third opinion and that made me even feel better. The thing is that I only have a bladder problem and the 1st Gyn wanted to do the hysterectomy as well even though I really didn't need it. My uterus it's still up high so the only procedure That I need it's the bladder. I am so thankful because I had the other 2 opinions and they told me that I don't need the hysterectomy. So, I finally found a doctor that help me and it is only going to do what I need. That's why I was feeling confused when I asked for help because I didn't wanted to extract my uterus. Once again thanks.
This web page is such a help thank you for the support.

Hi Anon

A hysterectomy is a serious thing - is it a full or partial? Bear in mind a full hysterectomy will put you directly into menopause which is a lot for a 36 year old to deal with. 

Why did he say he would only do your bladder surgery if he could do a hysterectomy too? What is his medical reasoning for this?

We hope to hear back from you soon-
