so you're having a hysterectomy

If you've been informed that you need a hysterectomy, this book is for you. Step by step, test by test, decision by decision, you'll know what to expect and what your choices are. Why are you having problems? Do you really need a hysterrectomy? What are the alternatives? Is it best to just "wait and see"? And if you do decide to go ahead, what type of hysterectomy procedure is right for you? From diagnosis to recovery, So You're Having a Hysterectomy is the ultimate guide for women facing this controversial surgery. Balanced, accurate information, real-life patient stories, and detailed illustrations give you the inside story on each medical procedure, while extensive self-help sections give you the power to find your own personal road to wellness--whatever you decide.

"Been there, done that, does not an expert make. Event though I have had a hysterectomy and am a sex educator/counselor, I still learned a great deal about hysterectomy from this book. Highly recommended reading."

--Sue Hohanson, RN CM, sex educator/counselor and host of the Sunday Night Sex Show
