2013 Battle With Fibroids


  1. Pam

    I’m having a hysterectomy on Aug 19 due to fibroids. I came across this blog after searching for tips after surgery. I laughed, I cried, I felt relieved to have found this. I’m crossing my fingers that my recovery is as easy as yours seemed to be. Thank you for the blog.

    Hi! On January 12th I had a TLH, kept both ovaries. Your blog made me laugh & I felt like someone else understood the floodgates of blood & painthat I too was experiencing! THANK YOU for making me feel like I’m not alone!

    Hope you are doing awesome!


  3. I had a lap hysterectomy procedure almost a year ago, and I did read your blogposts beforehand. Thanks for writing them.

    I just came across your post. I can’t even begin to tell you how grateful i am you blogged your journey. A little bit about myself. I was diagnosed with fibroids and I am 43. I could totally relate to your being tired, mood swings, and the opening of the floodgate. As that’s exactly what I experience right now. After bleeding for eight weeks straight, two internal ultrasounds my gp finally decided to refer me to a women’s clinic. Finally!
    Women’s clinic want to put me on meds and insert an iud, which honestly is not what I want. I’m 43 and just want my insides yanked out already. Honestly tired of being tired, being in pain, and not being able to venture far from home.
    I can totally relate to your story. I wish more women would speak about fibroids and the toll it actually takes on your day to day life.
    Thank you so very much!

    I am 55 and had a full
    Laparoscopic hysterectomy a week ago. I was tired of having long periods and fibroid pains, i also hd some endometriosis again, so instead of trying other options i chose to take it all and be done with it already. The pain was not any worse than some periods ive had lately, only the pain lasted a few more days and at the most got to a 4 out of 10 on the pin scale. Although, i have listened to the doctor and my nurse/husband and obeyed the orders with rest, meds and some light walking.
    I have been pleasantly
    surprised how good i feel.
    Today we as my first venture out, went to the store and had pizza ? when i got home i was more achey than the entire week, but i did not have any pain meds today just 1 800mg ibuprohin, so tonight i took the pain med, added a heat pad and am on my way to lala land. Tomorrow is my 1 week follow up so hopefully all goes well.
    I am accustomed to the hot flashes so i had started w estrogen over a year ago hopefully that will be enough and eventually less.
    So far so good!
    Anyone contimplating , i would say do not worry about the pain because it is nothing like what they did to women years ago, so weigh your helth options and gonfrom there.
    Good luck
