    Default Hysterectomy?

    I have started thinking about getting a hysterectomy or an ablation. My symptoms seem to have been increasing over the last few years and I was told by my gyn that my uterus seem to excrete a lot of prostaglandins which may be contributing to my pain issues. Has one of these procedures helped any other lupie out there? Although I am a bit nervous about the procedures themselves (just because any procedure will kick my immune system into a higher gear than it already is), I am desperate to find some kind of relief.

    Lupus attacked by uterus and ovaries years ago. I'd follow my gyn's advice on this. You'd just be adding more meds to the mix. I'm finding that with all the meds and physical problems I don't know what's causing what anymore. Don't treat yourself. That only causes problems. Talk to all your docs on this.
