Upcoming hysterectomy 8/8: Scared- large fibroids, worried about cancer. Would appreciate encouragement

Hi everyone first time I like to say I'm so thankful that I came across this site to be able to read all of the stories in the support that each and every woman has given to another to inspire to come is amazing. I'm 48 years old and I have suffered with fibroids for probably 15 years I was just told that it's best to have a hysterectomy. I had made peace with that because of all of the pain and pressure and discomfort I've had over the years has really come to a head and then I had an MRI yesterday. The Radiology report did confirm a very large fibroid infested uterus which is nothing new to me but they're concerned that the right ovary was behind the uterus and they were unable to confirm whether it was just consumed buy a fibroid or if indeed it may be something malevolent. Of course I'm shocked and dismayed but I'm trying to keep hope all there is no cancer history of my family. I just went for my ca-125 blood-test and I can honestly say it's consumed my thoughts. Thank you for listening and if anyone has a similar experience or just any words of encouragement I would greatly appreciate. God bless.

Re: Scared

Your story sounds very similar to mine.

I had suffered from fibriods for about 15 + years also.

One day, they just started to grow at a very rapid rate so my doc and I decided it was time for a hysterectomy.

I was 40 when I had my TAH, kept ovaries.

They couldn't tell from the MRI and CT if my ovaries had cysts or what, due to the amount of fibriods. So, of course, they did the 125 blood work and I was soooo nervous and anxious waiting for the results. Mine came back fine.

I had never been in the hospital or had children before my surgery and I was TERRIFIED !

It's very easy for me to tell you it will be ok. And IT WILL, but even though it has been 6 years, I still remember very clearly my nervous, anxious, scared thoughts.

I was exhausted from the fear. Once I had my surgery, I was consumed with my recovery and I was glad it was over.

Might want to consider taking valuim or xanax if your doc will prescribe them to you ......just to keep you calm through this frightening time in your life.

I don't visit here very often these days but I try to respond to ladies when I do pop on.

Sending positive thoughts your way!
