Real medical need for hysterctomy and a salpingo-oophorectomy? Had seen so much pro and con.

Depends. This depends on your diagnosis. Dysfunctional bleeding associated with abnormal cells found on a D&C would be reasonable as most gynecologic cancers can be cured if treated early. Removal for chronic pelvic pain is more difficult to assess. If medical therapies have failed some women may consider this option. Get a second opinion.
