My doctor has reccomended an abdominal hysterectomy because of large fibroids. I will be getting a second opinion. I was wondering if taking Lupron would shrink my fibroids enough to have the "easier" type of hysterectomy. Has anyone had success with this?

I had an abdominal hyst, and just wanted to throw in a little reassurance that it really wasn't so bad. If Lupron is a good choice for you, and if it does shrink them enough, that's great. Just don't spend *too* much time stressing over the possibility of having it done abdominally.

I agree, the abdominal incision, like most things, is a lot worse in our imaginations than it is in reality.

I took Lupron for two months before I had surgery. I was supposed to take it for three, but it didn't shrink anything, never stopped my bleeding - not even for one day! - and I just couldn't wait any longer to get things over with.

You can do a search on the site (up there at the top of the page, it's one of those skinny purple buttons) for 'Lupron'. There are a lot of interesting posts on the subject. Lots of ladies have had good success with it, lots have had terrible experiences. From what I've read and heard it is pretty much a crap shoot, but I would say it's worth a try if you really feel the need to see if things will shrink. Just be well informed about possible side effects, both short term and long term.

You can send me a private message if you think I might be of any help.
