Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

The best option is total hysterectomy - a peace of mind that one possible source of malignancy has been removed! In partial approaches, there is always a possibility of recurrence of the disease.
With anaemia and blood pressure, repeating the surgery at later years may not be any better
Menopause can not be avoided and it is wiser to face it now than may be uneventful too!
There is an old saying - 'whatever one doesn't have, there won't be problem from that!' - better be off with it, than be worrying; it has finished serving its purpose...

Blood in the stool (bright red) means bleeding from a nearby source - usually Haemorrhoids. You must see a Gastro=enterologist or General surgeon / get yourself examined - for early diagnosis; not to miss a treatable condition

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
