ABOUT DR. HEIDI & MARGIE | Margie's Big 'C'
At 36, a year after Heidi's diagnosis, my husband and I decided to try for a third child. Excited, I went for a routine ovary scan at my gynae. My doctor told me that my scan was abnormal and that he needed to investigative further. I was rushed in for surgery first thing the next day and I woke up having had an full hysterectomy. Pathology results had shown that I had ovarian cancer. Again, we were both stunned. I was thrust into surgical menopause overnight at the age of 36.
I felt angry that my body had let me down.
