I am scheduled to have a hysterectomy soon (due to bad periods). My doctor wants to remove both uterus and the septum but leave the cervixes. Anyone out there go through this?  I'm concerned what things will be like without the septum. 

Oh, and yes, I did get pregnant and delivered a baby 17 years ago.

I am scheduled for a Hysterectomy as well in January and I wasn't even given the option of leaving the cervixes, Im leaving the ovaries just to skip out on menopause. Do you know what the benefit of leaving the cervixes would be?

Anita - Apparently the risk of knicking the ureter is higher with the double cervix. Also my doctor thinks that leaving the cervix helps with sexual function.  The down side is still having to get a yearly pap but my doc thought it best to leave as much as she could.

Second attempt at posting!!  I would be really grateful to hear from anyone that has had their hysterectomy. I am currently undergoing treatment for fibroids and am thinking that a hysterectomy may be the best most definate option to cure this.

Don't! there is no need for such drastic measures. I consulted at least 5 "specialists", none of them agreed with one another completely on the course of action. 

I opted for a Lupron treatment for the maximum lenght of time allowed ,which is 6 months. It it shrunk the side of the uterus, which was acting up before for hormonal reasons. The plan was (and still)  that I would slowly be waiting for menopause to play its role, one of them being that it will shrink further muy uterus naturally .

I am 56, got that treatment 5 years ago. I was closely monitored at first every 3 months, then 6 than yearly.  No surgery necessary up to now. So far so good.
