Sue has written this book at the request of numerous patients who want more detailed information to help them navigate the challenging path of gynaecological and colorectal repair surgery. ‘Gynae’ surgery is undertaken when women for different reasons require a hysterectomy or if they are suffering from incontinence or prolapse. Many women undertake gynaecological and colorectal repair surgery with some anxiety and trepidation.
