In brief: Why the swelling?

I am curious to know why you had a hysterectomy at such a young age? The reason i ask is that sometimes various gynecologic conditions, like endometriosis, can cause these symptoms.
Do you still have your ovaries? Even with a uterus, the hormonal flux right before and during your period can cause water retention. I need to know more.
