Hysterectomy Risks and Alternatives
My guest this week is Nora Coffey, president of the HERS Foundation.
Nora was a guest on the show about a year ago. You can listen to that interview here. Now she joins us again to talk about her new book (co-authored with Rick Schweikert).
The H Word: The diagnostic studies to evaluate symptoms, alternatives in treatment, and coping with the aftereffects of hysterectomy.
If you think you don’t need to listen to this interview because noone is telling you to get a hysterectomy (castration) right now, I respectfully disagree.
Every woman should inform herself NOW before she’s faced with the decision.
After talking with Nora these two times, reading her book and from my own life hearing stories of women and their experience with hysterectomy (castration), I am convinced that there is a dreadful LACK of appreciation and understanding of the purpose of the female organs – on the part of medical professionals and we women ourselves.
The H Word tells you why hysterectomy is so commonly recommended, the diagnostic studies that should be performed first to evaluate suspect diagnoses, the treatment alternatives that exist, the benefits and risks of those treatments, and probably most importantly – the lifelong functions of the uterus and ovaries, and the lifelong consequences of their removal (castration).
I urge you to listen to this interview and spread the word amongst women you care about!
