Alternatives to Hysterectomy - A Word of Caution
It is important that you investigate possible alternatives to a hysterectomy that are appropriate for your situation. Often, conditions can be treated with less invasive surgeries or with pharmacological treatments.
In fact, many insurance providers require a second opinion prior to approval
of hysterectomy in an effort to reduce the number of unnecessary hysterectomies.
If your doctor insists on hysterectomy and it is not for a life-threatening
situation, be sure to seek another opinion and explore your options before
making your decision.
