From the website:
What is a Power Morcellator? A device used in hysterectomies to cut tissue into small pieces to be removed from the body. However, uterine cancers sometimes go undetected prior to the procedure. In these cases, the morcellator dices up and spreads unsuspected cancer inside the woman's body.
- Hysterectomy is the 2nd most common surgery among women in the United States
- By age 70, one out of three American women will have had a hysterectomy
- 90% of these surgeries are done to remove Fibroids (non-cancerous tumors found in the uterus)
- The average life span following accidental morcellation of sarcoma is only 24-36 months
- Only 15% of women who have leiomyosarcoma (LMS) that has spread (stage 4) will be alive after 5 years
- Women with sarcoma who are morcellated are about 4 times more likely to die from sarcoma than if they had not been morcellated.
Females seeking hysto's post testosterone use (heightening cancer risks to reproductive organs) should be keenly aware of power morcellator's potentially being used in their surgery. In trans female hysto's trans females are not generally tested for reproductive cancers since their hysto is considered elective. If cancer is present regardless of cause, and a full hysterectomy is performed (and it usually is) with laparoscopy using PM's, fragments of cancerous organ/s can be spread to various other internal organs. By the time trans females becomes aware of these cancers, their potential lifespan shrinks drastically to less than a handful of years IF they initially survive..
IF GETTING A HYSTO PLEASE READ FINE PRINT AND ASK YOUR DOCTORS LOTS OF QUESTIONS ABOUT POWER MORCELATOR USE IN YOUR PROCEDURE.
