After many bad pap smears that never amounted to anything, having blocked tubes surgically opened years ago to permit pregnancy ( didn't happen), one tube stayed open and the other is clogged, causing some discharge, and HURTS!
(I even have ultra-sounds observing a growth on one ovary that went away in a period of a few months.)
So, I know I want that hurting tube out. But my wonderful women gyno and surgeon are begging for me to "let them" take out my ovaries too. When I ask why, they say to avoid another surgery: for what surgery are they assuming?
What is going on in the tube? Infection? Growth? What does the discharge indicate?
I'm against "just 'cuz we're there" surgery anyway, but, don't the ovaries function still in a menaupausal woman? How much? Anybody been thru this and can report on such side effects or some more detailed explanations than I'm getting?
