For Those Who Have Been Told " Its All In Your Head"


Just an update on me! Had TVH on 04/01......recovering wonderfully!
I had been complaining to doctors for YEARS about lots of pelvic pains and cramps...heavy periods with clots, and although I didn't connect it at the time....lots of bowel probs, mostly constipation.
I had numerous Ultrasound scans....then a year ago I had a laporoscopy and hysteroscopy.My GYN said that everything looked fine, just that my uterus was a little enlarged...suggested BCP which I can't take as it makes me real depressed, then said she would do a TVH if I wanted one. At the time I didn't feal ready.
After nearly another year of the same probs...I had had enough! I went back and told her I wanted a TVH.
Well, she called me the other day with the path report...........they found clusters of small fibroids.She said that sometimes if they are small and really imbedded in the uterine wall they can't spot them on laporoscopy. I feel like, at last!! I have the reason!
Since the TVH I have had NO BOWEL PROBS!!! Told my GYN and she said that if the uterus is even slightly enlarged it can effect bowel function.
Ladies, you know your own bodies best....and if you feel you have probs, don't let anyone tell you its all in your head!

Thanks for the encouraging update! We do have to take responsibility for finding the answers to our health problems, and not take "NO" for an answer when we feel something is really wrong!

I hope things continue to progress well for you...congrats on your good outcome!
