Questions & Concerns

I am 41 yrs old and have 2 kids who are older now. I have always had issues between heavy periods, to painful intercourse. I have just recently found out that I have a few large fibroids which they can not do vaginally cause of the size of them so they have to do abdominal surgery. The doc told me that I would need a partial hysterectomy so I can keep my ovaries, but there are other concerns that I have. When finding out about the large fibroids, I also have a swollen uterus and a cyst on one of my ovaries. Wouldn't it make more sense to do the full hysterectomy instead of the partial, since I kow that I do not want anymore children. I have also been in alot of pain since my last visit with the doctor which was about a month again and my last final ultrasound for my fybroid and cyst is next Friday, I am thinking about suggesting that I have a full hysterectomy. Can a cyst come back and if so, wouldn't it make more sense to get rid of the ovaries so I don't have to deal with the another possible surgery down the line?

Any questions or concerns would be helpful, as I am really confused.
