There are many books about menopause. But to the woman whose menopause occurs unexpectedly, they may not be of much use. Sudden Menopause: Restoring Health and Emotional Well-Being is written for young women experiencing menopause due to hysterectomy, chemotherapy, radiation, medication, anorexia or other unusual causes. Nurse and women's health educator Debbie DeAngelo experienced menopause herself at 26, after ovarian cancer forced her to have both her ovaries removed. With supportive resolve and compassion, she offers guidance on the emotional and cognitive difficulties (short-term memory loss), as well as the potential physical problems (osteoporosis, heart disease) related to early menopause, and their treatment (nutrition, hormone replacement therapy, exercise). Appendixes include listings of helpful organizations and a bibliography of recommended reading.
