Hello all, new to this forum. Just looking for some professional medical advice and to hear from anyone who has been through this.
I was diagnosed with a small 1.5cm fibroid in 2013 and was told to watch it but kinda forgot about it until there was pain and I got a pelvic ultrasound. They confirmed the fibroid is 6cm (is this considered large), and that I need to see a specialist and that I will likely need surgery. Of course my mind is racing and I am fast Googleing the time away until my appointment (whenever the specialists gets back to me) which will be another formal pelvic Ultra Sound and then I see OBGYN to schedule surgery. I am totally freaked out this might be uterus or ovarian cancer. I am also not excited to go under for surgery and play around with my uterus, as I would love to have kids one day and I fear this might inhibit that. I also have no idea what to anticipate this costing, since my insurance at work was so bad and I am in between providers right now of course.
So does anyone have any advice or words of wisdom on what I should expect or look out for?
This is what the paperwork says: Pedunculated posterior uterine mass presents with US positive for R adnexal region mass.
Ugh. Please help.
