1 doctor agrees

In brief: Not a bad idea

There is newer evidence that some ovarian cancers actually arise in the tubes so removal can be preventative for such.
Also, this does not add significant risk nor does it add to your recovery. Thus, most suggest removal of fallopian tubes at the time hysterectomy is performed.
