Can fibroids grow back

I had a full Hysterectomy 9 years ago. They just left my cervix. I had a massive fibroid that weighed in at 9LBs... However I recovered quite quickly and had hoped to have a much flatter belly... This is not the case. My belly is huge and very hard.

Is it possible for a fibroid to grow on the tissue that was left? I cannot hold my belly in at all. I am 63 and beginning to get concerned. I am a little plump but the belly goes well before me everywhere I go.

Please if you have any information I would be most grateful. I wonder if I am just fat...

Thanks for reading.

Can fibroids grow back

Holy cow..... You just ruined my whole day. I never EVER want to have the pregnant-looking tummy that I just got rid of, and I most certainly never want another fibroid surgery : (

Can fibroids grow back

I left my cervix in, too. My doctor told me it's rare for a fibroid to grow in the cervix. You still might want to get it checked out just to be on the safe side.

Can fibroids grow back

Hi Roz,

I just found out that it is possible for a fibroid to grow on the cervix. I had half of my cervix left because of the way it was attached to my bladder. A CT scan a couple of weeks ago shows that there is a fibroid growing on it

(((Roz))), I think it is time to see your Dr. who is really the only one who can tell you if it is a fibroid or the dreaded fat that we all battle.

Let us know what your Doctor finds.
