to anyone out there who is thinking of surgery - please re-consider.
I was so unbelievably relieved I didn't take this course so after reading the shocking stories in "misinformed consent" by lise cloutier-steele.
Another very important book to read is "saving the whole woman" by christine kent who has a great website called first aid for prolapse (i think).
There is a very good chance of horrendous side effects form these surgeries and also of subsequent prolapses as for example, the removal of one organ removes scaffolds for the others, in the case of removal of the uterus.
Think about yoga, acupuncture,herbs and biofeedback with good well trained people and inform yourself with those great books if you can.
