State of panic

I've been reading so much on all of this. Most forums appear old, so hoping I hear from anyone that has gone through this now. Long story but I have been struggling with fibroids since I was 42. I am now 53 soon to be 54. I had my last MRI in august. This goes on every year. It had been originally suggested I do a procedure called UAE. Well unfortunately this last MRI was bad. The one fibroid( although now not sure if it is) does not have the look of a fibroid. 14 cm compared to 12cm previous year. Uterus extremely large,although not sure on size. My new gynocologist, yes new,whole other story. Wants to go over everything again based on the dr she had me see before I actually firm up the date. I had a third opinion with a gyn/oncologist. I hear all these stories about how women are now larger,their stomachs, and so worried about the outcome being worse.

Re: State of panic

Talk to your doc about your concerns. I know of good stories and bad ones but all of us are different. If you need surgery, you need it. That was my deciding factor. Everyone is different but it sounds like you may need this. Good luck finding options.

Re: State of panic

Fibroids can grow very quickly and be harmless. Mine grew 4 cm in the space of 2 months. Getting a third opinion with a gyn/oncologist is a wise move on your part especially if the fibroids looks suspicious.
