Mister HysterSisters Guide to Hysterectomy

Help, hints and information for the family of the hysterectomy patient - from HysterSisters.com!

Welcome

Hyster Sisters receives a lot of email from men. The email is usually short and to the point: What can I do to help my wife?

The Hyster Sisters website was created for "women to women" online support for hysterectomy decisions and support providing articles for pre-op, post-op and hormone therapy along with live discussions within the forums of the site. But we know that the men, the husbands, family members and caretakers of the HysterSisters, lurk online, reading the website, trying to gather information to help them understand what is happening to their wives and girlfriends. They are frightened. They are confused. They want to help.

And so, this website is for you: the men of the HysterSisters. Our best hints: ask your HysterSister how you can help and read our book!
