Someone from the Midwest Institute for Minimally Invasive Therapies commented on a recent post and sent me a link to the Chicago Fibroid Clinic. I'm passing it on for anyone who is suffering with fibroids and considering a hysterectomy. What I forget is that the uterus and ovaries do a hell of a lot more than try to make babies. They produce important hormones and are part of the pelvic floor musculature. Removing the uterus and ovaries not only drastically changes your body chemistry, it can contribute to problems like incontinence. So I've backed down from my previous disgust with my uterus and how much trouble it causes me. It has important benefits.
If anyone has recommended a hysterectomy to you, get as much information about it as you can. You can start with the Chicago Fibroid Clinic website.
