Colleen explains if she had a hysterectomy to treat her ovarian cancer diagnosis.
No, I had a hysterectomy 20 years ago right after I had my fourth daughter, but they left my ovaries in because I was 34 at the time. And of course, they didn’t want me to have to go through menopause or to have to take any type of hormones which was the school of thought then. And had I known 20 years later I would develop ovarian, I would have definitely had those taken out as well.
