I just took another look at this article. I realized I didn't scroll down long enough to see her name and particulars. Author and freelance writer! No wonder she writes so well! Really fires you up as you read it but I'm sorry but to say the average person can operate at the level she is suggesting is unfair. This does not mean that you can't strive for better communication so that you feel you are making an informed decision. For the average person this means putting a little more trust into a doctor's side of the relationship than this woman is willing to allow.

I wonder if she found in her research that hysterectomy is NOT a reliable cure for endometriosis? She is lucky-it seems to have worked for her.
