I want a hysterectomy at age 19

Hi! So I want a hysterectomy. I'm 19. And before you say I'm crazy, here's why. I have lots of medical issues. I was adopted but I know of ovarian cancer that ran in my biological family. Ive had numerous ovarian cysts, and my fallopian tubes have been drained twice including my right one taken out. I have considered the future. I do not want to get pregnant. I want to adopt to give some kid a second chance at life. My gynecologist knows I have lots of issues in that area. Do you think she will do it and do you think I'm making the right decision? Ive thought long and hard about it. Thanks in advanced!

Welcome to this forum.
You are crazy.I repeat.You can not take the decision which organ of yours you need to be removed.And the surgeon is not at all bound to nod according to your pro-choice.Hopefully, you can understand my point.Go for a treatment if you have any issue and depend on your doctor what operation you need.
Hope I can address your query. Please visit your doctor if there is any further confusion as without a clinical examination it is not possible to opine through an online medical forum.
