Even if surgery is recommended by your doctor, it is always your choice whether or not to have this procedure. However, it is important to understand the possible results of that decision.
Although no one can truly predict the outcome of your specific situation, it is possible that the current problems you are experiencing may improve, stay the same, or even worsen with or without the procedure. If you decline the procedure, your doctor can provide you with medicine and therapy based on your condition, other tests and observations.
With certain gynecological problems, however, medication may NOT be enough to keep your condition from getting worse. All of your concerns related to this decision should be discussed with your doctor at length. You and your doctor can then come up with a treatment method that is comfortable for you.
