2. I really hope that her diagnosis did not come too late.

It's a nasty disease, and it used to be the case that the diagnosis would come when the disease was entrenched in the body, and so was hard to get rid of.

I hope that's not the case with Christiane Amanpour.

Long life and great health to her!

4. Oh I hope so much she will be okay and will live a long healthy life from now on. I had a

Hysterectomy at age 50 and since I was so close to menopause at that point and since they had to do an abdominal hysterectomy anyways due to some quirks of my anatomy, I asked them to go ahead and remove both my ovaries at the same time. Partly to help with the endometriosis I was plagued by, but honestly mostly out of fears of possibly developing ovarian cancer in the future. Seemed better to just get rid of the things just in case.

6. That was a very smart move on your part, my dear LiberalLoner!

I did exactly the same. I was not quite 50, but close enough.

I had fibroids the size of oranges and since I was going to have abdominal surgery anyway, I suggested to my doctor that we make just one trip inside, and take my ovaries too.

He thought about it for a moment, and then he agreed. It was a huge relief to get all of that done at one time, and not have to worry.

I have never regretted it!

8. Oh gosh I'm so sorry you had fibroids, they cause so much suffering, I know you

Must have been relieved to just have it all out and no more pain. Although recovery from that surgery is a little hard, at least I thought it was.

I never regretted it either, I just wish Iíd done it earlier because I had so many problems over the years with bad endometriosis and adenomyosis which is kind of endometriosis of the uterus itself that causes bad pain and heavy bleeding.

Sometimes I think we women suffer more than our fair share of painful health conditions in life. But I know life is hard for everyone, male or female.

22. I guess I was lucky! Mine didn't hurt at all.

But oh boy did they bleed! I was working nights in Critical Care and sometimes it was difficult to get a bathroom break! I kept telling myself, soon all this will be in the past, and it was!

I got 8 weeks off from work and the last two were like a vacation! It made up for everything.

I'm glad you're past it too.

27. I was 47 when Endometriosis forced a subtotal hysterectomy on me.

As a classical singer, it was important to maintain as much natural body function as possible. So I kept an ovary. However other issues started popping up like higher blood pressure and blood sugar. Though I'm not 100% sure the procedure caused these, it was nearly instantaneous.

I'm fearful for Amanpour. I hope they caught it all. I truly admire her tough questioning style and using her knowledge to push conservatives farther than Rose ever did.

34. Oh I'm so sorry, I know endometriosis is no fun. You know, I did notice sudden aging with

Higher blood pressure and lower bone density too. Itís like when I went into forced menopause, my body aged fifteen years overnight. I wasnít expecting the changes to be quite so immense.

37. I did find an interesting youthening method - Detox.

My voice, skin, hair, eyes, all became like new. Yet BP and blood sugar weren't effected. All those decades of horrible cramps and migraine headaches became a distant memory though. What adventure.

18. About 10 times what other countries charge...

and that is a low estimate. You can't afford to live or die in this country....unless you are the 1%- who pay lobbyists to write the rules so they get even richer. Fuck the sick and poor. We are in the Gilded Age Part 2.

35. Very true. I honestly think that is a big factor in why we are seeing so much insanity with the

Q anon and conspiracy theories and blind rage and hatred. I feel as if too much pressure and fear have turned many people basically insane. It really frightens and worries me.

38. The moronic "other guy" gave them permission to expose their hidden ugliness

by being an obnoxious bully. Just look at how he acted when he went to the G7, etc. A total jackass and proud of it, as are his "deplorables". Hillary sure called that one correctly.

9. Hoping for speedy recovery

She hosts one of my favorite news programs, usually covers 4 topics in some depth and no commercials. Have been concerned when she was not on the show for several weeks, was hoping she was taking a break.

21. Same. Bianna did start saying

Christiana was on medical leave and would be back soon. I kept Googling but they accomplished secrecy until Christiane. Was ready to tell us herself.

Hoping chemo does its job and she ends up with a clean bill. Great to see her back but must say Bianna did an excellent job filling in.

26. A close friend did, too

She woke up in middle of the night in excruciating pain and barely managed to call her daughter. The tumor that she didn't know she had burst inside her.

She lived another couple decades before succumbing to old age.

29. Yes, both my sisters also survived

and thrived! Diagnosed in their 60's and now both alive in their 80's. And the side effects of the chemo were much less than i dealt with (breast cancer).

I really admire Christiane and I'm happy that she gave a shoutout to the NHS. In our cases, not a penny out of our pockets through all our surgeries, treatments and 5-year follow-ups. Thanks to our "socialist" healthcare....... aka universal health insurance.
