Thanks so much!
Good luck to you and happy new year things have a way of working out as they should.

Has the doctor said it is unwise to try to become pregnant? Neither my sister nor I thought we couldn't do it, so we just did it. I have had a couple of miscarriages, but no one ever said it was because I had fibroids.

I've also dealt with the awful bleeding, and yes -- I just wanted it to stop. But if you are really still wanting children, I would not have a hysterectomy until each treatment has been tried or ruled out. At that time, you can consider other options for parenthood if it is still important to you.
I never meant to imply pregnancy with fibroids was not possible. I became pregnant with them. The doctor never implied my miscarriage was due to the fibroids either. If my story gave that impression, I apologize.

What my doctor did say prior to my myomectomy was that my fibroids - penduculated submucosal - were very large and acting as an IUD and because of them I wouldn't have become pregnant. We had been trying for 3 years without success while my doctors at the time told me my problems would go away once I became pregnant.

Once the penduculated fibroids were removed and I was given the go ahead by the doctor to attempt pregnancy, I did become pregnant fairly soon. Unfortunately, at the time of my miscarriage I was 39 years old and I was told that I once again had some large fibroids inside my uterus. Nine years of sex without contraception and I never got pregnant again. At 47, all things considered, I felt the hysterectomy was my best choice.

AT YOUR AGE and hoping to have children, I would have tried other viable options in order to preserve my fertility. The trick is figuring out what is viable. I know the deep muscle fibroids are tricky and ablation is not always effective.

Again - Best of Luck

Re: Scared, Partial Hysterectomy Needed, Young & No Kids

Thx McLila. I didn't get that impression. You are totally right..my fibroids are tricky. Exact words from my doc! He doesn't think UFE/ablation will be effective...says it will only buy me time. He says he's not sure I could even get pregnant with my current condition. Maybe...maybe not. Appreciate your post!

Re: Scared, Partial Hysterectomy Needed, Young & No Kids

Hey Chacha - went back and re-read some of the older posts a little more carefully. I noticed that you do not currently have a partner and thought I would share my sister's story - I'm sure she won't mind.

My sister ended a long term relationship with a guy when she was in her mid-30's because she wanted kids and he didn't. She's now 45, never met "Mr. Right" and now finds she really likes being single. She's since embraced the Seattle single scene with a vengeance and indulges my step-daughter and nieces - sometimes beyond the patience of their parents.

She also has had fibroid problems and went through a lot to keep her uterus. She still has hers and is currently problem free, but now in early menopause. Oh the irony.

What you are going through is not easy and I wish you all the best. I hope that whatever you eventually decide to do that you have no regrets.

(((HUGS))) again.

Re: Scared, Partial Hysterectomy Needed, Young & No Kids

Thank u McLila. After much thought, research and prayer, I've decided to get a LSH. My doc called me this morning and we talked again in detail. This is the best option for ME. As you stated, he said my situation is tough. Docs always want to give their patients options, but I don't have that many at this point. I have a strong faith and I know God doesn't make mistakes. I had another "episode" tonight while eating at a restaurant. It was awful when I stood up. Luckily, I was wearing two pads. I just want to be healthy and live a normal life again. Your posts have been very uplifting. I will let you know my surgery date. Also, did you experience weight gain or loss after hyster? I'm only having my uterus removed. Thx, McLila!

Re: Scared, Partial Hysterectomy Needed, Young & No Kids

Chacha - You are very welcome. Glad I could be of help.

Oh, how I hated those moments and I'm grateful they will never be a part of my life again. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you that everything goes smoothly.

LOL - It's only been 6 weeks - almost 7 - since my hyster, so I can't say much about the weight gain or loss yet, but I'm hoping to be able to shed some pounds. for the record my weight was the same at my 6 week appointment as it was the day of surgery. I've not been very active for a while due to the heavy bleeding and much increased bleeding when active. Now, period freed, I'm hoping to get back into a more active life and get rid of the excess I've accumulated. It isn't going to be easy - I've become accustomed to being a couch potato and cat furniture.

I'm only a click away if you ever want to 'chat', and there are a whole host of others here with great advice and a sympathetic ear.

Cheers!
