Description

Hysterectomy is performed more than any other surgical procedure for women, with the exception of the cesarean section. Authors Adelaide Haas and Susan L. Puretz, both professors in the field of health, have experienced hysterectomy firsthand. Dismayed by the limited information available to them, they collaborated on this comprehensive book about a critically important subject for women. THE WOMAN'¬?S GUIDE TO HYSTERECTOMY addresses common fears, expectations, and questions regarding such issues as what to ask your doctor, second opinions, preparations for surgery, sex and sexuality after surgery, and life after hysterectomy. Encouraging all women to become more actively involved in their own health care, this book is a practical catalog of the latest medical information and provides much-needed reassurance for women faced with this life-altering decision.?Ä¢ Thoroughly revised to include the latest research and developments, including new treatment options and alternatives to HRT (hormone replacement therapy).?Ä¢ Original edition sold 10,000 copies.show more
