Im  sure this has discussed before but wondering others with any experience with this.  Have been have low pelvic/vaginal pain, frequent urination, back pain, looking pregnant, gained 15 pounds in 3 months, tenderness in stomach, bloat etc. had a ultrasound this morning. She said my uterus was the size of a 8-9 month pregnant woman with many small and large fibroids. Waiting to here back from primary dr for what's next. Is this considered a surgery type size or has anyone had suscess with meds? Thanow for any replies.

I have a friend who had this situation and she had surgery. She said it was the best thing she could have done. She felt better than she had in years. It took her a few weeks to recover from the surgery but she said it was nothing compared to the suffering she had been through.
