Mother completely cured by radical hysterectomy
A rare case where hysterectomy was really needed for endometriosis
In a lot of cases hysterectomy does work. My mother is one of those such cases. She had very severe endometriosis, so much so that she was bedridden for four years. The doctors thought that she had leukaemia as her red cell count was so low.
She had to have iron infusions every two weeks. In the end she bled right through the month. They finally discovered endometriosis via a pelvic scan. The disease had spread to her bowel.
Within a week she was in hospital having a radical hysterectomy. She was 39 years old. They took everything and scraped the bowel.
Afterwards she was thrust straight into menopause and it took two years to find the right HRT. However, she has never looked back.
Her immune system improved dramatically, she has no pain, no other side effects whatsoever. The surgery saved her life. She is now 65 years old and counts the hysterectomy as one of the best things she ever did.
She is not alone. I worked with lots of women with endometriosis and of those who have had partial or total hysterectomies, they all say it improved their health dramatically.
Being a yoga teacher surgery has not been my first option, but I believe there has to be a sense of balance when women are presented with their options. Namaste
