Egg production after hysterectomy ?

I had a full historectomy 10 years ago, leaving only my ovaries. I am married and would like to have a baby with my husband. Is it remotely possible my eggs are still being produced and are able to be used to have a baby?

If you still have your ovaries, chances are they are still producing eggs...They would be able to remove them and mix with your husband's sperm...This could then be injected into a surrogate Mother to nurture the child in her uterus...Good luck...
