eggs extracted after partial hysterectomy ?

I had a partial hysterectomy 2 years ago. My doctor told my I would continue to produce eggs and have menstrual like symptoms.

I would very much like to have another child. Is it possible to have my eggs extracted from my ovaries in order to have them fertilized and then placed in a surrogate?

Yeah, easy. If you still have one working ovary you can have them remove a few mature eggs a month and have them fertilized with your husbands sperm and placed into a surrogate mother. There are injections they can give you to help more eggs mature fast as well. This is usually an expensive and lengthy process but it works and they've been doing it for a long time. No problem.
