Monologue

Pearls of Wisdom

Doug Winfrey and nurse Joanne Conaway discuss a recent news article regard a study published in the British journal Lancet Oncology.  The study found that women 45 and younger  who have healthy ovaries removed during a hysterectomy and do not go on HRT (hormone replacement therapy) are twice as likely to die during the study period than those who still have ovaries.  For the first time gynecological surgeons are starting to re-think the theory of removing health ovaries as a preventative measure to avoid ovarian cancer.
