A compelling MUST READ for anyone contemplating a hysterectomy and for those
who have already had one. I wish I had read this book prior to my 12/98
surgery. Had I done even a small portion of the research Elizabeth did (12
years of distilling over 45,000 medical journal articles down to the book's
856 footnote references), I would never had had a life-altering operation
that I did NOT need. I have other books written by physicians that I go to
when I have questions or concerns. However, I still go back to Hysterectomy, Ovary Removal,
& Hormone Replacement months later to find answers to what is now happening to me.
I find it to be the only book that consistently meets my needs.
