"It was determined my ovary had flipped over — it's called torsion," she recounted on Instagram. "Mine flipped back by itself and I'm ok but sometimes if it doesn't you have to get surgery or you can lose your ovary."

That horrific scenario afflicted Anne Wheaton, the wife of "The Big Bang Theory" actor Wil Wheaton, who suffered through days of severe pain in her right side, pelvis and torso before doctors deduced the problem. By then, it was too late to save her ovary, which had to be surgically removed.

"I've had two kids, and it still wasn't at that level of pain," Anne Wheaton told TODAY in June. "The surgeon (later) told my husband that this is the worst pain a woman can go through."

A flipped ovary, more formally known as an "ovarian torsion," can cut off a connecting artery's blood flow and lead to the the death of the organ. Wheaton, a children's book author, said that she believes the loss of her ovary might have been avoided if a female doctor, more in tune with that type of pain, had seen her in time.

Philipps included a plea for her social media followers to go to a doctor if something feels off with their bodies: "...our advice is always, don't be a hero, go to the doctor."

Philipps admitted that she "felt like an idiot for going to the hospital," but in the end it was the right decision. She ended her post with a thank you to the nurses and doctors who took care of her, but fans were thanking her for raising awareness of the condition and symptoms. We hope she's on the mend soon!

“I Fit An Hour Of Cardio In Each Day.” .
Marci Ien finds time to do an hour of cardio five days a week You know her bright smile and targeted questions from TV. Her face is instantly recognizable, as she is broadcast journalist, who was the host of Canada AM and is now on The Social. But what you don't see is how crazy fit she is. In fact she logs an hour a day of cardio, within her busy work schedule while raising two children. She recently decided on this health goal to be her #BHmoment. And this is how she did it. Why cardio for her #BHmoment? 'My goal was to incorporate a solid hour of cardio into my weekdays,' says Ien. 'I wanted the energy boost that exercise provides and also wanted to be stronger and more fit.' Ien's cardio strategy 'I started my personal program this past June,' she says. 'Instead of driving to the subway each morning and parking my car there - I walked the two kilometres. On rainy days I did a walk/run combination on my treadmill at home before work. The weather continues to be great, so I've continued my routine. I’m sneaking in four kilometres of walking per day. I’m walking at a pretty good clip, too.' Fitting it in is all about fitting it in With a busy schedule that includes prepping for and co-hosting a daily talk show, two kids aged 13 and six, and various speaking engagements and charitable initiatives, it was hard to make time for exercise - to make time for me. But this works.' Her friendly advice 'I tell my friends - all of whom are insanely busy - that taking time each day, even if you don’t have much of it, to devote to yourself is paramount. Nothing matters if we don’t have our health.' The post 'I Fit An Hour Of Cardio In Each Day.' appeared first on Best Health Magazine Canada.
