2nd myomectomy today, found calcified fibroid

I had my 2nd hysteroscopic myomectomy today (last one on 24th march 2016) and a 2nd fairly large partly calcified fibroid was partially removed. I am a bit worried as to how fast this fibroid has grown since the 1st surgery as I was informed at that time that the only fibroid has been removed. No other fibroid was seen. But in a span of 2 months yet another 3cm fibroid appears and even gets calcified! How is that even possible? How can a fibroid grow so fast?? Has anyone have some idea or suggestions in this situation? By the way I am taking norethisterone for the last 1.5 months to stop the bleeding and letting my body recuperate from anemia.

Maybe the reason is the norethisterone even though it's progesterone and not estrogen. I have read fibroids will grow with progesterone as much as with estrogen. They are hormone hungry. I was given progesterone to control bleeding but stopped after researching how many cite fibroid growth with progesterone therapy. Armotase inhibitors such as DIM helps but is expensive. This slows the production of the enzyme fibroids manufacture and slows their growth. I was embolized then had a hysterscopic myo to remove what remained in the uterus. Just a thought...
