Few questions before surgery

I was wondering do fibroid tumors go away on their own? I am scheduled for a hysterectomy tomorrow, the pain has subsided somewhat. Just wanting to make sure I should still have the surgery. I have a cyst the size of a golfball on my uterus. Thank you for your help.

Re: Few questions before surgery

Good luck Lesliedjn in your surgery. Not sure if you will see this before 'signing off', but from what I know uterine fibroids may come and go but in many cases they continue to grow. I would trust your doctor's opinion on the size and growth potential. I'm not sure if this is one that had been there prior and grew, or just appeared suddenly. I am also not sure if you were tracking its growth via sonograms, etc, for any period of time. To me, it is also good to remove cysts/tumors and ensure they are not cancerous. My motto is if it shouldn't be there, it shouldn't be there Best of luck tomorrow.

Re: Few questions before surgery

Fibroids don't just go away but can shrink to where they don't cause problems. Often this is at menopause. They often shrink during pregnancy because of the hormone changes.

Many women have their symptoms get better right before surgery. It's like our bodies are trying to behave to prevent surgery!

Re: Few questions before surgery

Good luck today with your surgery! I have to say that I no longer have that nagging SI pain that would get worse with my monthly cycle due to fibroids. It lasted for 3 1/2 years. That alone was worth the surgery! I am experiencing surgery and recovery pains, but that will eventually go away.

To a speedy recovery!
