    YOU NEED THIS BOOK!!!

    Reading this book was like having my own personal physician at my side 24 hours a day to answer all my questions - even those I had not considered. This book is an absolute must for any woman who wants to take responsibility for her health and make educated decisions regarding her choices about hysterectomy. Dr. Streicher thoroughly describes, in understandable terms, many topics including alternative options to hysterectomy, and what to expect regarding each option. She also adds humor and humanity to this difficult topic. This book is a guide and a godsend. Buy it, read it, and study it. It will make the time you spend with your physician more productive. It helped my husband and me greatly!
