my sister is going in for surgery to remove fibroid tumors, 6-17-99. her doctor wants to do a partial hysterectomy just in case. although my sister does not have any problems other than the fibroid tumors they want to do a hysterectomy in case she have a problem later on in life.
is it beneficial to my sister to have the second procedure done?

Dear Vernessa-there is never a reason for a partial or complete hysterectomy for the diagnosis of fibroids. if your sister cannot successfully get a myomectomy, in her area, then Female Alternative Surgery is an option. I will remove the fibroids and reconstruct the uterus. please refer to the website for more information, specifically the section on post hysterectomy complications.
very concerned about fibroid tumor located on cervix. Gyn. states will keep an eye on it, no major problems besides some clotting during cycle and mild cramps. next appointment in
