Hi, welcome to Health care magic forum.
Your decision is an intelligent one,many people ask so many questions to the doctor, and follow none.
Only thing you are concerned is whether it is total hysterectomy, or normal. If total ovaries are also removed,and and the patient may need Harmon replacement therapy.
But in your case it is for the fibroid s,so you may not need total hysterectomy. Still you can clear your doubt.
Take more of green leafy vegetables,pulses,sprouts,and protein rich foods to have blood,general health and resistance against infections,and to with stand the surgery, and recovery.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery. Thank you.
