Where to start?

My mother had undergone 2 removals of polyps in her uterine. After her last D&C, the doctor advised that it's best to remove her matres (uteros in english). But because of her age (67) and her hypertension, we delayed the operation. I'm a bit guilty that we're hoping that it will just go away.
But unfortunately, it did not.
Now, we are faced with going for that one solution -- removing her uterus by surgery. I am really scared!
This time, I made a quick google and discovered that this is not a rare issue. A lot of women are actually suffering this, and most of the time, they're advised to undergo surgery. But a lot of women also do not want to go surgery and instead opted for alternative medicine and diet.
I found a few books and resources here and there. But having no background in medicine, I cannot quite point out which is true and just garbage.
So I'm creating this "blog" to help me sort out, and think through the vast of information.
Before I would end this post, I would like to share this TED Med video by Dr. Terry Wahls, who talks about how to feed and empower our mitochondria to help us battle illnesses. This is one of the reason why I wanted to explore the alternative, and "healthy diet" way of fighting my mother's problem.
