a great book to read

I too enjoyed the book.
And I am pleased that she has become a spokesperson for gyn cancers.
I just wish she did not charge soooo much to speak publically.
And just did it sometimes from the goodness in her heart.

a great book to read

hi brenda, on yours and others reccomendation i got the book and read it. it was very good. i feel many of us are misdiagnosed. especially us women who are a little older and mostly had male drs. any time i complained of cramps or spotting i was told it was normal and there was nothing wrong. hope youner women get the message and speak up to drs about themselves. sue

a great book to read

I bought the book the day I was dx with endometrial ca. It helped me through the first few days and cleared some fears up for me. I wish there was more out on how she is doing. I saw the tail end of an interview the other day and I think she is going to be in a new sitcom or join an existing one.
My dx was delayed because my dr said I don't fit the typical endometrial ca profile. I was told that I had perimenopause symptoms.....surprise surprise.....We were all shocked. Thank God it was a stage 1a.
I highly recommend the book.

I read her book, too. It was given to me as a gift from a friend while I was recovering. Think I finished it in a couple of days. I could really relate to most of it, although the sex chapter (after 2 weeks????) was a little hard to believe. That would have been WWWAAAAYYYYY to soon for me!

hi brenda, happy birthday!!!!!yes, i read the book in a day. i agree about the sex thing at 2 weeks. then later she said it took her a long time to recover. she should have found hyster sisters and read how important it is to go slow. i am off today for my first internal radiation. still scared, still in doubt, have to hope the drs. are right. my sister says i read too much and this might be true. for every opinion there is an equal and opposite opinion. have a great day brenda. sue
