Get well soon Shay!!!

As Shay of Booker Rising explains:

 

My regular readers may remember that some weeks ago, I said that I will be undergoing a hysterectomy soon to eliminate submucosal fibroids, the severe (and sometimes life-threatening) anemia that I’ve experience from them, & other complications. Tomorrow, the surgery will be done on me. I will be in the hospital for three or four days.During my absence, I have selected Angela Winters, the moderate webmaster of Politopics blog and she has graciously agreed to do a few posts over the next few days. I wanted someone who will bring a balanced perspective during my temporary absence. One of my teen cousins will also post a few items that I have written.

My word to Shay: Get well soon and KICK ASS!

One thought on “Get well soon Shay!!!

  1. Good morning,

    You never need a hysterectomy for fibroids unless you have the wrong doctor. Submucosal fibroids can be removed without removing the uterus. The only time fibroids can’t be removed is when the doctor doesn’t have the skill. If you would like a referral to a doctor that has consistently good outcomes performing myomectomy (surgical removal of fibroids leaving the uterus intact) contact the HERS Foundation at hersfoundation.org.

    The uterus is a hormone responsive reproductive sex organ that supports the bladder and the bowel. Women who experience uterine orgasm will not experience it without a uterus. The vagina is shortened, sutured shut at the top, and made into a closed pocket. If only the uterus is removed you have a three times greater risk of heart disease. If the ovaries are removed your risk is seven times greater.

    There is a new 12-minute educational video “Female Anatomy: the Functions of the Female Organs” at http://www.hersfoundation.org/anatomy that is important for you to see to help you decide how to proceed. Although you have undoubtedly made arrangements with the doctor and hospital, they can be postponed until you get the information you need. Your job, family and friends will also adjust as needed. The only important person here is you. You have many years to live with the outcome of this extremely important decision.

    I also encourage you to read HERS blog. Go to the HERS link (above) and click on blog. It is down briefly for repairs, but it will be back up by 10am est.
