This health infographic from http://www.bestmasterofscienceinnursing.com/epidemic/ makes sobering reading indeed. Just wish there was something similar for the UK too.

I had an email this morning for a woman asking about hernia after a hysterectomy. After a bit of investigation I decided it would be worth putting a post together with more info so here it is:

Hysterectomy, Menopause and HRT Impartial Information and Support for Women
Introduction
The Hysterectomy Association is a social enterprise set up by Linda Parkinson-Hardman in 1997. It was created to provide impartial, timely and appropriate information to women who were facing a hysterectomy.

The biggest concern that the majority of women have is that they haven’t been given enough information to help them make an informed decision and unfortunately this position doesn’t seem to be changing much.
