Doctor Recommends Hysterectomy Without an Examination

Good afternoon.

I just went to a new gynecologist for fibroids that I have and he immediately said when do you want to have a hysterectomy? I told him, “I was not ready for that and he immediately said “well then we will start you on Lupron.” At this point I am so confused, still in pain and he has all these suggestions but he did not even do an exam on me. He continued to tell me that my last gynecologist was wrong to remove the fibroids!

Bottom line is I want out of pain and to make sure this is not a more serious problem. Oh, he did say make an appointment in a month and he will do a biopsy of the uterus and check to see how things are going.

I am an RN and for once I am lost! I need a recommendation on what to do. Is there anything you would recommend for treatment? Would you do an exam on a patient before talking about any kind of treatment?



Yes, run from this doctor and get another opinion. It is unreasonable to make a recommendation without an exam, and there are certainly other options other than hysterectomy for women with fibroids. Find a gynecologist who takes care of women with fibroids on a regular basis.
