    you can consider ufe. uterine fibriod embolyzation. its non invasive. reduces heavy bleading and you dont need to touch your uterus or be cut opened. you could be back to work in a week or 2.

    or open surgery.. myomectomy . i suggest you go on the internet and research those two. then you can make your decision. i have multiple fibriods I too am in my 40s and still single , yet trusting God for a partner and believing that i will have a child and then pluck off the whole uterus and fling away cos the fibriods are also as big as yours.

    you will come out just fine. trust God who gives and preserves life

    I had surgery back in nov 30 2017. I was only 37 with no kids.. i had 7 of my fibroids removed that night. What is strange, I didn't feel any pain when i had them like most women felt. I had to removed them because i want to have children. The doctor advised me to get them removed. I'm still struggle trying to conceive. I think my fibroid is growing back. If it is, I am not doing another surgery. I will see a doctor soon to find out.

    If you cant deal with the pain you feel, you can talk to your doctor to them removed.

    My good friend is having surgery soon. The pain she is feeling bother her everyday and she cant take it anymore. Her fibroid is size as baby watermelon and more behind them.

    Hi,

    I would try to talk to Dr. William Parker in San Diego, CA. He's a strong proponent of uterine preservation and Fibroids are his specialty.

    Do you still want kids? I am similar to you with age and my fibroid size was 11cm - not down to 5cm at 10 months post UFE. I am so scared because all doctors say basically the blood does not flow to uterus after UFE so chances of having healthy infant are hurt. But then others say it is fine and stats say to do it. What do you plan?

    Talk to your doctor to see what your options are. I am 36 years old and I had 23 fibroids which were essentilly taking over my abdomen. I had an open myomectomy seven months ago in which the doctor removed the fibroids but saved my uterus so that I can still have children.
