Re: Refused lupron before surgery?

Hi Risabeth, wow 24 cms?!? Bless.

My uterus is above my bellybutton too. I am having GERD issues along with palpitations when I took megace (stopped the megace). reading your experience really helps. Do you mind PM-ing me and telling me if your surgeon is in my area? (I live in Washington, DC). I would love to get a third opinion from an experienced surgeon.

Plus, I was so miserable I was ready to go along with anything with little question.

Now I have what someone else called 'a Galaxy' of fibroids, and some pretty large. My Dr. didn't even mention Lupron.
I was on the depo-provera injection too, but it didn't do anything for me. I was still bleeding constantly on it, although the amount was less than before. Did you notice after you stopped the shot that your fibroids grew faster before your hysterectomy? It seems like my once fairly flat stomach is now bulging out ever since I decided not to take the next shot. I also have a "galaxy" of fibroids. My doc never suggested Lupron either.

Re: Refused lupron before surgery?

I am scheduled to start the Lupron this Thursday, and I am scared, I have read all the terrifying side effects as loss, teeth falling out, severe bone density loss, possible Fibromyalgia, geez all that makes the hot flashes and mood swings sound like a walk in the park! I am very concerned, but my Dr has reassured me and I have talked to a couple ladies at work who had the injections, and all agree the shots were a breeze. They all told me all they had were a few hot flashes, a little insomnia, and some moodiness, but nothing uncontrollable. I have fibroids that need to shrink as well as my uterus so that I can have a vaginal hyst. I dont want the injections, but I dont want a abdominal surgery either. So I don't see any other option. DId any of you end up taking the shots, if so, what was your outcome??
