I am aware that I am extremely young to go ahead with a partial hysterectomy, but I know I am making the right decision for myself. How do I know that? I was ready to pursue a surgical treatment because I was miserable even on my medicines. I was given a few medical options I could try, but I wasn’t very comfortable with them. The Mirena IUD has issues. Your body may try to reject it for up to 6 months. I could play around with different birth controls, but those would take a while to level out. I had been offered Aromatase Inhibitors, but at the CEC they told me that they don’t really prescribe those.
So I looked at my surgical options. I could pursue a Presacral Nuerectomy (PSN) or a hysterectomy. A PSN is a procedure where they cut the nerve that innervates the uterus. It may provide temporary or permanent relief depending on the woman. A PSN may cause incontinence and other issues. I decided not to go forward with a PSN because should it not work, I would be going forward with the hysterectomy anyway. I was trying to prevent multiple surgeries.
I knew that I was supposed to have a hysterectomy because I was driving home and asking God what to do. A hysterectomy kept coming into my mind. I kept praying, “Lord I don’t want a hysterectomy. What am I supposed to do?” Again, hysterectomy popped into my mind. I know the Lord has great plans for me and this is part if his plan. He has made that clear to me.
