hi chinadollmom, are you brca positive? i'm not aware of ooph being recommended except in these cases. if they just want to shut down your ovaries, they can do it medically.
i don't have anything to offer about post-meno SEs - i am premeno and am having an ooph next month (I am BRCA1+). about the hysterectomy, my onc recommended leaving it (as long as all presurgery tests and US show that it looks OK). the chance of uterine cancer is slightly raised because of tamoxifen, but my onc didn't think it was significant enough to warrant removing my uterus, and also there are other problems (structural...) that can occur if you remove it. hope this helps.
