Terminology: "fibroid uterus"

I peeked at my 3 bi-monthly ultrasound reports (I call it being "wanded," all you Princesses).... & I saw radiologist's findings where this term is written....and I know I have "multiple fibroids" but the term sounds like the word fibroid should be an adjective like "fibroidal" or ...lol.

Has anyone ever had this term fully explained? Is the uterus just jam-packed and stuffed with fibroids?

Just wondering......

Terminology: "fibroid uterus"

I had a TAH for a "rapidly growing large leiomyomatous uterus". On other words, I had fibroids. After surgery I was told I had one large (15+) fibroid on the outside of my uterus, and 2 smaller ones inside. My uterus was the size of an 18 week or so pregnancy and was growing fast.

I don't know if this helps you or not.

That's just what they call a uterus with fibroids. I, too, was surprised when I saw it written that way as the reason for my surgery.

Hmmm. Well, the image of a bag of marbles is interesting (and amusing). Thanks for all your replies.

Just hope the marbles don't go skipping all over the OR floor on surgery day. lol.

Take care ladies,
