Dear Everyone both on/ff of here.

Heres both of the full names to abbreviations that I have provided above in the title line.

HRT – Hormone Replacement Therapy

OBOS – Our Bodies, Ourselves and in which was/still is known also The Boston Women’s Health Book Collective.  Well at least to me.  I used to have their books (couple of main ones, menopause, and Pregnancy & Birth, but have since given them up.  To me its wasn’t worth the keep all of them anymore because of what they have become in the last 5 yr.  In which I have already have either blogged about, intro posts/threads in other chit/chats, discussions, forums, social media networking.  That I have also belong/ed as well.

Heres there’s official website as well.

Information on Women’s Health & Sexuality – Our Bodies Ourselves.

Basically, find so far that I have read others members of FF really have no whatsoever clue as to what else is out there.  In which I have already up more then once in responses.  I mean theres a whole lot more out.

Especially, from beyond what I have already/will go through, learned, researched from all of it.  This also includes all close, far, family, friends, acquaintances, and beyond as well.

Unfortunately, it’s out of print now, but a great body image book is called “Real Gorgeous” by Kaz Cooke. It talks about body image, self esteem, health, eat disorders, media and beauty lies. I’ve read it many times and I always feel better afterwards. I am very interested in body image and eating disorders. Women and young girls put so much pressure on themselves to be perfect and eating disorders are so common nowadays. Magazines try to balance their advertising with body image advice articles, but women’s eating disorder clinics won’t allow women’s magazines on the premises. There is so much pressure put on women – and now men – to lose weight, weigh themselves, try different diets. The story is never ending. I could go on for pages about the subject, but I will say I think women need to support each other and learn to feel good about their achievements and not just the measurement on the bathroom scales.

KitKatKitty,

Hmm beyond all interesting, okay, understandable, and WOW.  In which I’m in the middle of road when it comes OBOS being still in print and/or out of print totally.  Its mainly where they are going as opposed to what they before.

I’m back yet again because I also want bring beyond this author’s both book/practice chit/chats/discussions/forums/other social media networking portals/sites thats hes also up on here.  Well, I found both him and his sites via a search I was doing (properly on most likely Google or was Duck Duck Go).  So, I clicked on it/them to see whats its/they are about and at the same time I almost registered on there, but then decided against it because whats the point of being on there/doing it there as well.  Even through read most of everything on the book site, but not for the practice one.  In which I have already been a part of some very similar to this.  Of course I have no whatsoever clue as to why this book isn’t available here in US/Canada besides UK/Ireland/maybe even more english speaking countries as well.

I’m back yet again with even more information/s and resource/s.

This time its all about Breast Cancer, Breast Implants, and Me: Making Decisions and Moving Forward – Our Bodies Ourselves, Caroline Moore (Guest Contributor).  At the same time this also applies to beyond both Ovarian and other GYN cancers as well.  Especially, my died from it a yr ago (wed., 4/26/16).

At 41 years old, I had just married the man of my dreams. With two young kids in tow, I was moving us forward into the beginning of our best life. My boys would have a father figure. I would have a partner, my soulmate, my love. Literally as I was packing up my apartment to move, I received the call that no one ever expects: “The biopsy is back. I’m so sorry. It’s breast cancer.”

The next few weeks and months were a whirlwind. My instincts told me not to get swept away in the strong current created by the doctors: “must have more scans!”; “must schedule surgery!”; “go go go!” It is not easy to fight the waves, but your life is at stake and you and your family will be dealing with your choices forever.

During my treatment and recovery, I was an active participant in all the decisions, and none were made lightly. I selected my breast and plastic surgeons and oncologist carefully and trusted them completely from the beginning. And still, when I considered any treatment or procedure, I did a copious amount of research on my own and had long detailed conversations with them about the benefits and the risks of all the options. I asked lots of questions, including my signature one: “What would you do if this was happening to you?” I dared to challenge the doctors and the status quo. I took notes, recorded my appointments, and took someone with me to take even more notes. And, I read and read and read. Here’s a list of the questions I asked and my thoughts about what I learned.

What kind of surgery do I need?

Due to what was believed to be “multi-centric tumors” in my left breast, there was never a question of whether or not I would have my left breast removed: it had to go. I was left with only two options for surgery: a single or double mastectomy. I chose a double mastectomy.

How soon do I need surgery?

It turns out that in many cases, doctors are comfortable waiting a month or two — despite the urgency with which they try to get you scheduled. This time was so important to me because I was able to use it to learn about my choices, read stories of people who forwent standard medical care, and formulate my own opinion of what my plan would be.

Will I do breast reconstruction?

Breast reconstruction involves using implants or autologous tissue (tissue from a woman’s own body) to rebuild the shape of a breast. I never considered not reconstructing my breasts. As I move further away from the events, I can now see this as a viable option. However, I am still grateful that my body looks – relatively – whole.

Is there any information that implants are safe?

Well, no, there is not. There are cherry-picked short-term studies that the implant makers use to point to their “safety.” There is, however, much information that: 1) implants last 7 to 10 years on average, and will then need to be replaced, 2) silicone filled implants can discreetly rupture so regular MRIs are advised, 3) for years, many, many people have complained their implants made them sick, and many who had them removed regained their health. This information led me to decide to avoid implants and use my own tissue to reconstruct my breasts.

Think thats it for now.

Thank you, again, in advance.
