I brought a copy of the H word as well as copies for my sisters and mother. It's been 11 years since my surgery and I hope that no one else in my family will have to endure what I live with every day, every hour, and every minute of my life now. The surgery short-circuit's the entire being and it is really endless and pointless in cataloging symptoms. I was diagnosed with fibroids during a routine gyn exam, had heard all the usual media reports of women knowing their options. Found a well-known female ob/gyn and discussed the option of myomectomy since I hadn't had children and the fibroids were asymptomatic. Doctor assured me that my choice was adequate, had me sign a "Myomectomy Consent Form" and proceeded to perform a total hysterectomy. Hopefully this book will ensure that my experience and the experiences of 22 million women alive today, won't be in vein, and other women are saved and free to enjoy whole lives and whole selves. After 11 years, if I had it to do over again, I would not submit to any surgery - the fibroids were better than the living hell that exists now.
