Re: Fast growing fibroids!

i truly can relate will all you sistas!! i too have about three or four very large fribroids in me right now. i go for a TAH Oct 28. i did a Pap test back in august and it came out normal. so glad at that but i'm just ready for these things to come out of me. yes, i've been stressed out at the up comming hysterectomy but i know it's for my own good. well one thing we will not have to worry about. no more periods and no more fibroids!! we are going to be, in Mary J Blidge's words, "FINE, FINE, FINE!!" and my prayers are with allyall!!

Re: Fast growing fibroids!

but now about the periods, i missed my period for september so i'm sure the fibroids has gotten so big it stopped it. that's probally the reason why i never had any kids. which in my case i don't regret. the strange thing is that when i was having periods, i didn't have any problems. no cramps or anything. my period came on time and it did it's 4 to 5 days and that was it. but no problems.

Re: Fast growing fibroids!

Im scared too.. had my ultrasound this past Thursday... Three are the size of oranges and one the size of a plum. I call my uterus Quadzilla. My biopsy is on the 17th and Ill schedule my partial for as soon as I can. I worry how long Ill be in the hospital, what kind of anesthesia, will I end up with incontinence issues and what will happen to sexual desire. Glad to have found this site... at least I know Im not alone.

Re: Fast growing fibroids!

Gardenangels, why are they doing a biopsy first? Is this the normal next step? I have all the same worries...can they just to like a spinal tap instead of being fully put out? I have heard from my friends that had a hysterectomy, that the sex life was BETTER and that they wondered why they didnt have it done sooner...so if that helps at all...

Re: Fast growing fibroids!

Akdawna,

We called mine Phoebe (the fibroid). My daughters came up with the name when the question came up that I looked pregnant. I looked 5 months pregnant in the space of 3 months. My periods where extremely heavy. I passed huge clots which is what lead me to see the doctor. I like your idea for Fred. Good luck and as you've found out....you have to keep a sense of humor. I'm enjoying not having to worry about periods anymore.

I dont know why... I was told I had a choice between the partial and an embolization...and the radiologist would need the biopsy..... but once they did the ultrasound, and I read up on just what an embolization was, the partial seems like the better choice for me. I called to cancel the biopsy, given the fibroids go to pathology anyway once theyre removed, but she wanted me to keep the appointment anyway. Im frustrated that Im talking about my treatment with the receptionist instead of my doctor.... and I know full well Im going to have to reschedule this thing anyway... Im bleeding for two weeks out of every month, and she put my appointment right smack in the middle of it!
