Susan or anyone else-
I have a question about a friend of mine's situation.
Let me be as brief as possible. She had a tubal back about five or six years ago. She had a hysterectomy about two to three months ago. The reason for it was an episode of bleeding that lasted about three months. Very heavy, clotty, painful. The same dr that took care of her was the one that did my tubal and the one that I turned in to the state medical board. Anywho, she says that she feels great. I have told her of my situation and what I have learned, so she is aware of PTS and all that good stuff.
The question is: She recently was diagnosed with lymphoma cancer(right name?) It is contained to her lymph nodes throughout her body, not malignant at all and her chances of recovery are very good. She has been told that she needs to go on for a second opinion at a larger hospital,The Cleveland Clinic, as her current dr told her that things just didn't jive. Two of her tests showed conflicting results. What are the odds that it could be tubal/hysterectomy related? Does anyone have any information that could be helpful? Any articles read, or any thing, anywhere.
She is on no form of HRT. The dr left her ovaries. I told her that she was post-tubal and that her ovaries might be damaged, and the symptoms she is having now may be menopausal. She is suffering from a good case of depression. She has had a troubled past, to put it mildly. There is a lot of emotional trouble for her from her past experiences. She refuses to believe that she had any ill side effects from her tubal/hyst experience. Tells me that I am borrowing trouble. The dr is right, I am fine, but whatever I am suffering is not from the tubal. She COMPLETELY trusts the tubal dr.
Thanks in advance!! Cheryl :o)

CPTwomen members have testified in front of the IL and CA Court, the IL Gov. Task Force, the Sunset Review Committee, (Senator Liz Figueroa), NOW, and more. What occurred has been made a matter of public record. The CPTwomen are making public the issues which millions of other women have faced in silence. Issues such as women are not informed at the time of their tubal ligation that there is a risk of hormonal imbalance occurring. For the CPTwomen to continue its mission to move this issue to the forefront of government, we must ask for a small contribution/subscription fee from all those who wish to communicate with us and participate at the Coalition's Bulletin Board
