Lupron treatment for 7cm fibroid prior to vaginal hysterectomy

I would like to know if anyone else has had success with Lupron shrinking fibroids? To make it possible for a easier vaginal hysterectomy?

Re: Lupron treatment for 7cm fibroid prior to vaginal hysterectomy

Hi Clle,

I did (3) months of lupron shots to shrink my fibroids enough for a less invasive hyst (LSH). My fibroids measured15 cm total and after the lupron shots...they measured 9.1 cm total...and my Dr. was able to do a LSH. I felt lupron was a success for me.

Best wishes~

Mary

Re: Lupron treatment for 7cm fibroid prior to vaginal hysterectomy

Thank you ladies for sharing, I am scheduled to have a tvh Oct 28. And am pretty nervous about it. How was your recovery? And Mary how long did it take the Lupron to leave your system? Also did either of you women keep your ovaries? I am hoping to keep mine. Thanks, Cllc

Re: Lupron treatment for 7cm fibroid prior to vaginal hysterectomy

Hi Clle,

In my case...I felt like the Lupron left my system pretty fast.

My recovery went very well. In post-op, I took two weeks off from work...and then I returned to work with my Dr's okay.

I did keep both my ovaries with my hyst. I had my hyst seven years ago...when I was 46...and my ovaries are still working good. No hot flashes yet.

Hope that helps. Best wishes again.

Mary

Thank you so very much! I really needed some positive feedback after reading some of the horrible stories on here. I realize everyone is different, but reading positive stories helps with my nervousness. Thank you so much!
