I finally gave in

After 15 years of fighting a hysterectomy, i gave in and told doctor to schedule it for january....i go back and forth between terrified and wanting it over with...the mri found my uterus so large they couldn't see it all, innumerable fibroids and best estimate 30-40 pounds..i personally find that hard to believe, so being an internet junkie i've been reading these posts like the latest Twilight novel..prayers and light

Re: I finally gave in

Hi Deb, glad you've made the decision to get the fibroids out. I had a SAH to remove mine and free me from the "crime scene" bleeding they caused. I am 100% pleased with my decision to have the surgery.

My SIL was diagnosed with fibroids less then a month ago- she had no idea, thought some of the symptoms she was having were the onset of menopause. Her DR wanted her to have a hysterectomy ASAP, as they couldn't even get in to do a pap smear. She had a TAH this Monday and it turned out the fibroids were so big they caused bladder damage and damage to one ovary. The good news is they were able to repair the bladder damage and the one remaining ovary should get her through menopause.

Moral of the story- you may not even know what damage the fibroids may be causing.

Good luck to you!

Re: I finally gave in

Hi,

I had my hysterectomy 3 years ago after years of problems (I still have 1 ovary and my cervix). I was 31 and had put off the surgery for nearly 10 years. A hysterectomy sounded so scary and final...and I was afraid that I would feel 'less of a woman'. My only regret is waiting so long to have an organ that gave me nothing but agonising pain removed! I feel fantastic now...and I save a fortune on Tampax!!!!

Good luck and keep us posted on your progress!

Kathy
