Has anyone here had an issue with uterine fibroids? I know mostly all women over 30 have at least some, but I'm dealing with a lot of complications. One doc says "hysterectomy" but my regular GYN says, "Just wait it out until you hit menopause." I'm 47 and a recent hormone test shocked me by showing I have the hormone level of a woman in her late 30s!!! In other words, menopause is a long way off. Uh oh.
Meanwhile, severe anemic, weakness, some pain sometimes, on and on. Massive blood loss every 3 weeks, for 12 or so days. And we arent' even talking about my less than cheery personality!
Did you deal with this? Did you decide on the surgery? If yes, why and how did it go? Are you glad you did it?
