Myomectomy in the UK or the US?

The following question was sent to me by viewer struggling with the decision of having a myomectomy abroad or in the U.S. You can read her post in its entirety here.

Dear CandidAnn:
My dilemma: Where to have the surgery?

A. The U.K., where the surgery will be close to free but I live alone, have no family there, the environment is not great, I don't really trust the medical system there, plus I am still waiting for the appointment to see the Consulting Gynecologist (specialist) for the first process.

B. The U.S., where I can have the surgery as soon as I can meet with a surgeon and schedule the surgery, I have no insurance in the U.S. so I have to pay for the whole surgery, my family reside in the U.S. so I can stay with them, the environment is more hospitable for recovery.

My myomectoy experience: Healing at Home

If you or someone you know is thinking about having a myomectomy to get rid of fibroid tumors, this will help to prepare you for some of the things that you might experience while recuperating at home. Everyone's experience is not going to be the same. I am NOT a doctor. I am only sharing my experience.

How to Photograph Milky Water

Have you ever wondered how photographers are able to make water look milky? This photo tip will show you how easy it is in 2 simple steps.

1. Set your camera to a long exposure, somewhere between 1 - 3 seconds. You will have to decided how long of an exposure depending on the lighting conditions. The long exposure gives the water time to move creating that milky effect.

2. It's impossible to keep your hand steady for these long exposures. You will need a tripod to pull this off. Setting your camera on a tripod ensures a tack sharp photo for this type of nature photography.
