I agree with you, and had those questions myself- It just seems so harsh, a full blown hysterectomy?? On an 11 year old? For something she only occasionally experiences? Granted they are worse, or directly related to her menstration, was there no medicine to regulate that? Dont they give girls the pill ((I know contraceptives like the pill are against catholic teaching but if they gave her a hysterecomy they sterilized her for life-the pill would be, IMO, a much better option that wouldnt have such lasting effects)) so they only have periods so often and it regulates - idk I dont want to say too much without knowing what I'm talking about, but it just seems to me that there had to have been an alternative....something not so drastic. Is this condition something that cant possibly improve over time?
I ask because I dont know...To me, from where I'm sitting- looking at my young daughter, this would be, unfathomable. Was there NO hope for her future??
