Information Really Helps

I found out a week ago that I had to have a hyster because of fast growing fibroids. Even though I went to the appointment thinking the "worst," I was floored when told the news. As such, my thinking processes froze on the spot and when asked if I had any questions all I could think of was "Is there any alternative?" Dr's response to that was a huffy "Well, we can do nothing!" I have been on this site everyday since gatering information. I only wish I knew then what I know now.
I was wondering if my fibroids (6 cm) could be shrunk instead of having a hyster and decided to search this site for posts. I learned alot about Lupron, its possible side effects, and what it's used for. It helped me alot in my struggle. I will still ask the question but I think I know now what the answer is going to be and I am better prepared for it.
I can't stress enough how helpful this site has been to me in the last week. I love the chat room and felt an instant "bonding" to my cyber sisters. Bless you all for your heartfelt caring, support and informative messages.

Information Really Helps

I am not a doctor obviously, but if the surgery doesn't interfere with your future plans, it may be the best thing for you. I have talked to many women and they feel wonderful : now and wish they had done something sooner instead of putting it off. I know it's not easy because I am a LIW, too. Hang in there and pray. God bless you!
