9780452276741: A Gynecologist's Second Opinion: The Questions and Answers You Need to Take Charge of Your Health

Written in Q&A Format, A Gynecologist's Second Opinion answers all the questions that patients actually have but that most doctors often don't have the time or the patience to answer. It addresses women's concerns while providing the facts needed to get appropriate care. The book was written with the idea that a woman should be a partner with her doctor in her health care, and the more information and understanding she had, the better off she would be.

Presented with the stories of women who have actually had these experiences, this authoritative guide provides detailed information on fibroids, ovarian cysts, hysterectomy and the many alternatives to hysterectomy, common bladder problems, contraceptive options, endometriosis, pelvic pain, ovarian cancer screening tests, abnormal pap smears and cervical cancer, menstrual bleeding problems, pre-operative and post-operative instructions and concerns and more. There are diagrams to make the anatomy and possible surgical procedures clear and understandable.

Numerous treatment options and alternatives for each gynecological problem are described, as well an overview of the type of diagnostic tests required to make a definitive diagnosis. With completely up-to-date information on the latest surgical procedures, drugs, and tests, this must-have reference will find its place on every woman's bookshelf.
