I'm not sure where to start. I will tell you that my migraines are directly affected by hormonal increases and decreases, and I would say being off pills completely would be the best answer. I also have had cervical cancer treated with LEEP procedure (similar to D & C for the most part) and was not told that I "had" to be on birth control...as a matter of fact I had an issue with Mirena (have you tried mirena?) and am getting ready to have it re-implanted and during the interim I have not been on any birth control.
Also, be very careful. I noticed you mentioned Maxalt and Excedrin and both of these can cause REBOUND headaches (also referred to medication overuse headache) Please ask if you need more information on what this means.
Please talk to your doctor to see what the best route is for you. I dont have any personal experiences as far as a hysterectomy is concerned. I would imagine that there would need to be "medical necessity" for them to do it, but you may be right...it MAY help with one part of the equation.
Take care and let us know what your doctor says
