One Twitter user pointed out she has something in common with Stone by writing, "Turns out Sharon Stone and I have something in common. In both cases, our docs missed giant fibroid tumors. Glad she's on the mend, too. Maybe I should see if she wants to do some Wordscapes while we're recovering." Another Twitter user added, "Thank you @sharonstone for sharing your misdiagnosis. The EXACT SAME thing happened to me. Years of worsening symptoms & being gaslit by a monsterous Dr who said it was all in my head even though the 2 lb tumor made me look pregnant. Hysterectomy a year ago but ptsd remains."
