In brief: Preop visit

Schedule a preop counseling visit with your surgeon.
The answer depends on the type of hysterectomy you will be having ---vaginal, laparoscopic, Robotic or open. It also depends on your body size, weight, number of children, other medical problems and the underlying pathology. It also depends on if you are taking out both ovaries, only one or neither.
