Hysterectomy what to expect afterwards?

Hi
Had a hysterectomy a few years ago after detecting ovarian cancer C. Not a big deal. Spent overnight at Mayo, Phoenix. Tests revealed there was no cancer remaining. Totally clean.
Now, oncologists are recommending hysterectomies even for women who do not have cancer.

No one should have a hysterectomy unless they have cancer. Hysterectomy is major surgery and it is destructive.

@starko. I'm wondering why an oncologist would recommend a hysterectomy with no sign of cancer. Are you referring to the preventive measure when a woman has a genetic history of BRCA1, BRCA2 or Lynch Syndrome? Could you provide more information on what you are referring to?
