I had a partial hysterectomy about 13 years ago due to uterine fibroids causing heavy bleeding. I also have pernicious anemia so of course the heavy periods were causing severe anemia. After the procedure I went into menopause and developed severe osteoporosis. I fell and broke my pelvis not knowing I had the osteoporosis.
I also developed breast cancer ERPR+ HER2- and had a double mastectomy. I discovered after the chemo during a laparascopy that I still had ovaries so I also had them removed due to fear of ovarian cancer.
I have learned how important the uterus is and we should not just remove it until we have tried other remedies. Fortunately I had four daughters, including twins and my last child was from a tubal reversal. I am in remission for four years now and I consider myself to be a very lucky woman.
