3 months waiting

Had biospy Friday, still waiting on results. I've been informed it would be to dangerous to do surgery now, with such an enlarged uterus and many large fibroids. Wants to put me on Lupron Depot 3.75mg. for 3 months to try and shrink before surgery. The thing is, I don't know if I can wait that long. I'm in alot of pain, unless this is a miracle drug. Has anyone this same situation that can enlighten me some?

Dear Karen,

I'm awfully sorry that you have been in such pain, and may be facing surgery, but I'm awfully glad that you found Hyster Sisters and posted.

I had my hyst for different reasons, so I don't have any personal experience to share, but I did want to you and suggest that you visit the Hysterectomy Alternatives section of the Hyster Sister Resource Library where you'll find more information about fibroids and alternative treatments.

I hope that you'll receive your biopsy results very soon, and that the results will be good. Please keep us posted.

Hi Karen - So sorry to hear about your pain and that you are still having to live with large fibroids. I had a TVH just 9 days ago for large fibroids, the largest was the size of a canteloupe. Not sure what your medical history is that your doctor would feel it's "too dangerous" to do surgery now because of the size of your fibroids, but if there aren't any underlying medical concerns other than just the size of the fibroids, I wonder if you have sought out other doctors for their opinions. I sure hope you will find the relief you are looking for very soon. Take care and God bless!

biospy results are in

I got my results today and it's benign, Thank goodness. I also received my first shot of Lupron. Already having abit of headache but time will tell. I am usually cold blooded so if I do get hot flashes I may be okay with them. In alot of pain as always, seems whenever and whatever I eat upsets my stomach, not sure why that is. And Patty I was told I was the size of an 18 week uterus, but loaded with fibroids. When I bend or lean against the counter I feel like I have a baseball in my stomach.
