In brief: Depends
If you have questions about your gynecologist's advice, a second opinion is never a bad idea.
There may be alternatives to a hysterectomy which your gynecologist should discuss with you that may or may not be appropriate for you. There are also several different ways to perform hysterectomy (davinci minimally invasive, laparoscopic, vaginal, or abdominal) that should be considered.
