At the age of 44 my OGYN informed me that my endometriosis had turned into cancer and that I need to have a hysterectomy as soon as possible. She called my classroom phone on a Monday so I got this news in front of my sweet little second graders. She said "I have an opening for surgery this Friday." I told her this was way too much information to process and that I needed time to think and pray about this decision. Needless to say, I needed to step out of the classroom for a moment to process this information, so I asked a teacher down the hall to watch my students while I went to the break room to call my husband.
Long story short, I let fear lead my decision and I had the hysterectomy. Mostly because my mom had been down this same road and I was afraid of that dreaded word "cancer."
When I asked my OBGYN's collage, who did my pre-surgery consult, if the surgery would affect my intimacy with my husband he said, "No, you'll be fine. It won't affect your sex life." Well, I am here to tell you that having a hysterectomy DOES change things.
During my recovery I started studying natural ways to support the body. Many years ago when my sons were pre-school age I wanted to go back to school to become a Naturopath, but money was tight. Finally, in December of 2013 I began my schooling at Trinity School of Natural Health and obtained several certifications:
