    It seems that some women with Pelvic Inflammatory Disease may opt to get a hysterectomy to get rid of this disease. 


    But here is what this women's health site has to say on this topic:


    "A hysterectomy removes the uterus (womb) and usually the cervix. A hysterectomy may reduce pelvic pain, and is likely to get rid of PID, but there is no guarantee. If the infection or scarring is outside of the womb, for example, a hysterectomy will be of no use."


    And too, here is some information about how some women continue to have pelvic pain after having a hysterectomy.


    I do think this is a question best answered by your doctor or gynecologist. 


    Hope this helps some.
