In brief: Talk to your surgeon

You need to have a "sit down" discussion (Consultation) with your GYN surgeon.
The method of hysterectomy is dependent upon to nature of the "disease" to be removed, the surgeon's experience, the hospital facilities/equipment with available anesthesia, risk of complications, and most importantly, your level of comfort with them all. You will be asked to sign an Operative Permit at surgery.
