Hysterectomy - a cure the lupus?

My partner has a lupus rash on her cheeks. Her Doctor is of the opinion that it is brought on by a pregnancy hormone and it has stayed in her body thus giving her this rash. She has been sterilised and is on a course of Depo-medrone injection's every three months, this has not helped and now her G.P. wants her to have a Hysterectomy hoping it will finally cure the lupus.

You tell me that your girlfriend has been advised to have a hysterectomy as a 'cure' for a lupus rash. This appears to be very draconian treatment, and I would advise her to have a second opinion before embarking on surgery.
