Found out I needed a hysterectomy in 2008. I found drawing and writing very helpful. In 2009 I posted a series of hysterectomy cartoons called “The Hysterical Hysterectomy” on http://www.flickr.com/theartangel . These cartoons are used often in other peoples blogs and websites. My coloring book/journal will be available soon.
