The HysterSisters Community

Jun 6th, 2014

I am a Hyster Sister

HysterSisters is an online support group and resource site for women looking for hysterectomy information, from diagnosis to surgery recovery. Thousands of women from around the world call themselves HysterSisters, bonding together to share wisdom on the hysterectomy process, from surgery preparation, recovery, treatment options, hormonal issues, sexual dysfunction and more. The website provides discussion forums, hysterectomy articles and resources, a video library, and a wealth of information for women looking to learn about the hysterectomy process.

As a gynecologic oncologist and author of Not Your Mother’s Hysterectomy, I cannot emphasize the importance of patient empowerment and patient education. Gaining knowledge about your health care will give you the tools to feel empowered when making important medical decisions. Unless you’ve gone to medical school, medical science is an intimidating subject, and that’s why resources like HysterSisters are so vital to the hysterectomy community. In addition to reading hysterectomy information from our blog, we highly recommend you avail yourself of the many helpful and informative resources on the HysterSisters website. Women can lean on and learn from each other during this time in their life, becoming advocates for their own health while providing support for their friends.
