What *medical-type* book was most helpful to you about cancer-related hysterectomy?

Hi all - I've browsed through the bookstore here but am wondering if anyone has a recommendation on what the most helpful book was when they were dealing with a possibly cancer-related hysterectomy?

I'm not looking for something that delves into emotional stuff or pro/con hysterectomy issues, more about the practical medical aspects and make-sure-you-get-the-best-hospital-care type thing.

Mom's having a hysterectomy Dec. 12 so I'd like to rush-order a good book to hopefully have by Tuesday. Thanks.

If mom's having surgery for ovarian cancer:
"Ovarian Cancer--Your Guide To Taking Control" by Kristine Conner and Lauren Langford.
Should be able to get rush off Amazon.

I tried to stay away from books and articles that were in depth and depressing. I did not want to know the worst possible senerios. I did however want to know the best possible senerios.
I loved the book Cancer Schmancer by Fran Dresser. It was light reading and funny.
Good luck book hunting.

Hi
I second Ellen's (Margaret321) recommendation. That book includes everything you and your mom would like to know.

The one Ellen (Margaret321) suggested and Mayo Clinic: Guide to Women's Cancers. This one covers all the women specific cancers. Also available at amazon.

Thanks so much - I'm getting that first book mentioned (even though we don't know if it's cancer yet - 50/50). I saw on Amazon one of those book-and-other-item lists people put together that looked of interest - a guide by Liz Large called So you'd like to... Pack a Hysterectomy Survival Bag. I don't know if it's OK to post links here so will just mention the name.

What kind of cancer does your mother have?

My favorite book was the "Mayo Clinic Guide to Female Cancers" that was already mentioned, which describes all the female cancers and their treatments in greater detail than any other book I found.

Other good books I read were "100 Questions & Answers about Ovarian Cancer" by Don Dizon and "Choices" by Marion Morra, which is an excellent book on ALL types of cancer.

Louise and all, thanks - I ordered that first book that was mentioned and will keep the others in mind. *Hopefully* won't need them. My mom's in a 50/50 situation now as to whether the ovarian mass the docs found is benign or not. She's awaiting CA-125 results and is going in for surgery Dec. 12, after which time we should know something. I wanted to have at least one explanatory book on hand going into her surgery to be better prepared.
