Fibroid 8cm- Hysterectomy or not?

I have a fibroid that my Dr says is about the "size of a 3-month fetus". Been taking BC pills for years to control heavy bleeding. Other symptoms are pain w/intercourse & abdominal bloating; My mother died of ovarian cancer at 62; I'm now 50 & trying to decide if surgery is right option? I'd get my ovaries removed and my Dr thinks she can do it all laparascopic. I am scared of surgery & on the fence! Advice needed!

Re: Fibroid 8cm- Hysterectomy or not?



We're very glad you've joined and hope you'll benefit from the wealth of information and support here!

You're very wise to ask questions since a hysterectomy is a big decision, and major surgery, which should only be considered as a last resort after all other options have been exhausted. You may find further medical opinions very useful indeed, if you've not already sought them. If not, then please take a moment to visit www.givemea2econd.com to find out how a second opinion could help you.

Princess Ruby has linked several areas above as a guide, but please check out the <link> Treatment Options Page for now and start a new thread for support in our Hysterectomy Options and Alternatives forum where others can share their experiences.

Sending all good wishes and we're here to support you ~ every step of the way!
