The best way forward is to understand the benefits and risks of each treatment option.

This surgery requires at least 2 or more days in the hospital, and comes with an extended recovery period. Afterward, possible complications include bladder leakage and weaker pelvic floor muscles. And, you will begin menopause as soon as your surgery is complete.
