I’ll wrap this week up telling y’all what I’ve decided to do in all these cases…thank you for your comments/suggestions!!
So a relative is having surgery in the next few days. From what I’ve gathered, she’s having a partial hysterectomy – uterus out, ovaries stay – because of issues with fibroids.
Now, I appreciate all the good that modern medicine does as much as the next person, but I’m not sure she knows there are options* which might help her control her fibroids – changing her diet, increasing her physical activity, embolization – which are nonsurgical and wouldn’t require her to lose her uterus. (Maybe embolization is considered surgery, I don’t know…)
So, should I say something about alternatives to surgery or just keep my mouth shut? If you were the patient in this scenario would you want to be told?
* I researched fibroids when I learned I had them during my sonogram when I was pregnant with Lovegirl. Mine have never bothered me, so I have no plans to bother them.*
