45 And Growing A Good Size FibroidFunny how I see it also spelled fybroid, not that it really matters.
My monthy cycle started to change a couple years ago and I had a pain like
I"ve never felt before during my cycle so I went to the doctor who sent
me for an ultra sound and internal exam. Turns out my uterus has a huge
fibroid which is almost filly the whole area inside there.
I've read online how these fibroids can grown and can make a person look
4 months pregnant.
When I had mine checked 2 years ago it was 7 inches by 6 inches in size.
Whether it has grown since then I don't know.
I've decided for the time being not to have it removed. If it causes too much pain
and starts making going to the bathroom extremely difficult for me I'll have to.
The doctor said if I can wait it out for 5 or so years my estrogen levels will start
to drop as menopause comes on and then the fibroid should shrink.
So for now as long as I can deal with the complications of it being in there I'm
not going in for surgery. If the pain gets to be too much and so on, then I'll have to go in.
