Hysterectomy connected to Johnson and Johnson talcum powder

Edited , 12 users are following.

After the removal of a large polyps in my womb,I was advised to have a complete removal of the womb and both ovaries which thankfully was successfully removed.

during this time I learned that a woman successfully sued Johnson and Johnson in America for not stating the dangers of their talcum powder causing cancer

I wonder if this caused my problems for I have always used this talcum for personal hygiene.

    Wow, I had no idea that fibroids could be related to using baby powder. I also had an ovarian cyst and had to have a hysterectomy. Thank goodness all of my tests came back negative.

    Hi Carmelina 52473! I urge anyone who has ANY questions concerning talc and the Truth of the harm and toxicity they hoped to keep buried deep within world class Accredited International Science and Medical Resources to please visit "Endometrial Cancer From Talc" Facebook Page at:

    https://www.facebook.com/endometrialcancer/

    They lied to us so they could profit. The Evidence is there. Talc is deadly.

    "Endometrial Cancer From Talc" is dedicated to multidimensional Talc Research to centralize the information in one place in order to Save Lives by exposing the Truth - everything they did not want us to know. Endometrial Cancer was my unfortunate portal to talc Research but i did not stop there. God Bless You.

    In 2015 i went to the gyn and was bleeding. I ended up with large mass fibroids that was tearing my uterine wall. The doctor sent me back home with the unnatural bleeding to await a partial hysterectomy. I have polyp on the other end as well but that was overlooked. I was talked into the tv mesh which ended up extruding and giving me infection and now I have pain, can't have sex and auto-immune disorder. I used talcum powder my whole life. My fibroids weren't cancerous thank god but it's caused me a life sentence between the two problems. I feel abandoned.

      I am curious of what problems talcum powder causes as well. I have also used j&j all my life. I have had ovarian cysts for as long as I can remember. I hit 33-34 years old and began having very heavy periods. I was told because I was getting older it was normal. Then 2 years ago in January 2019 I started my period and it never ended. I went to countless emergency rooms scared I was going to bleed out and was going to be admitted for a blood transfusion 2x if my blood count went any lower. I was finally given Provera which only eased the massive blood loss. I was going through a super plus tampon and over night pad soaking them every 2 hours. I was told I needed a hysterectomy to ultimately stop the bleeding. After a year of bleeding so badly I am shocked I lived to get the hysterectomy last year. I came very close to dying the surgeon had told me. so it makes me wonder if all those years of use of J&j have caused this. Please let me know if anyone has found out anything thank you.
