How quickly do fibroids grow?

I was diagnosed with at least one fibroid in Oct. along with many adhesions, scar tissue, etc. I wanted to know how quickly fibroids grow in size? I have been having severe pain for the past week in my lower middle pelvic region exactly where the LSH specialist did an exam. I'm scheduled for March 31st for a LSH (or abdominal- not sure which they are gonna do until they get in there) I talked to the doc. twice this past week and he put me on Darvocet until my surgery. Do these things grow huge in a short amount of time?
Thanks so much

How quickly do fibroids grow?

It all depends. Mostly they grow very slowly. Some do grow much faster--the one that caused my hysterectomy grew about a centimeter a month, and that was enough to be able to feel the difference by feeling my stomach between my Jan 9 doctor appt and my end of Jan doctor appointment. Some ladies on this website seem to have ones that have grown even faster. I think a lot of how you can feel it also depends on where it is adn what it means for your uturus--for example, after the uterus reaches a certain size, it doesn't fit under the pubic bone any more and so it rises up, and your stomach is a whole lot bigger while it takes pressure off the bladder...
