Thanks so much for your wonderful and supportive reply. How odd that you don't know for sure if your ovaries were taken out!!!!!! My suggestion is to get a copy of your medical records -- from the doctor or hospital -- whomever has the info. you need and will release it. You need to know exactly what was done. It has been surprisingly easy for me to get any medical records I have needed in the past & very helpful. One of the things I have found during my doctor-shopping is that the options were not always presented to me in the best way & not all options were fully discussed. For example, there is a process called MRI-guided ultrasound that most doctors could not speak to fully because they did not know enough about it. Since I began discussing my fibroid issue, I have found out that many people I know have received hysterectomies because their doctor said it was the best route for dealing with their fibroids. It has truly amazed me. You are definitely not alone!
