Hysterectomy

My Dr. wants me to have a hysterectomy because this is my second set of twins. He says the risk for the uterus to bust is great after two sets of multiples. I will be having a repeat c-section in Aug. Has anyone heard of this?

I am not a doctor, but that sounds absolutely rediculous! I would get a second opinion.

Get a second opinion! I'm not saying it's not a correct diagnosis for you, it's too much of a life altering procedure to not make absolutely sure. Also, my grandmother had 4 sets of twins (yes 4) and did just fine. You can always wait until after your twins birth and then go see another Dr. if you don't want to be rushed just yet. Congrats on your twins!

Well cathi it eventually is your decision regardless of what a doc suggests. Have you ever seen the show about the lady with 16 kids?? Anyway, she has 2 sets of twins and umm 12 other children. Her regular doctor didn't deliver her last baby because of the risk but again that is after 12 kids and 2 sets of twins that he finally said it was getting risky.. If I were you and the doctor kept suggesting this, I would just find myself another doctor. I guarantee you will find many that will have no problem with you having more children under their care.. Hope this helps
