This book is a step-by-step for a woman to read prior to her Doctor's appt. I like the alternatives to medicine and other questions to ask doctors that woman do not know about. There are so many fears that most woman are unaware of the life than can have after a hysterectomy. I recommend this book to anyone on the verge of having this procedure.

Rated 5/5
Clear bright prose that illuminates a vast amount of complicated material. I gave this to a friend who is a colorectal surgeon who actually does hysterectomies and he thought it excellent and quite complete. Well done.
