Unfortunately : Unfortunately we can't beat biology at age 58 - by the time of menopause, at average age 51, there are only a few thousand eggs or less eggs left, and you would not have any viable (healthy) eggs at age 58. Even at the time of your hysterectomy, around age 47, it would be extremely difficult to use your eggs to achieve a pregnancy with current technology. Sorry we can't be of help.
