Hysterectomy - URGENT
After intensive bleeding for 2 weeks, i went to see my GP who recommended me to a gynaecologist. According to the sonar i have a large growth on my uterus, my uterus is enlarged and it lies to the opposite side. He advised me to have a hysterectomy done immediately. I had cancer of the servix more than 10 years ago and according to this gynaecologist, the doctor should have done a hysterectomy as well at the time. Firstly i want to know if i have a hysterectomy(not removing my ovaries), will there be any side-effects and secondly should i go for a second opinion.(please recommend the best gynaecologist in JHB/PTA region)
