Am almost at the end of my second course (5 months to date) of fibristal treatment and my uterus' size remains the same. In fact, I even fear the fibroids might have grown during the treatment as I feel them more with certain movements. My belly also looks bigger - I think.
While the side effects have been pretty mild (with the excerption of the occasional hot flash and nigh sweats), I feel like I have bloated since started this medication. I run 30km per week, strenght train 5x/wk and eat carbs once a day. Yet I cant seem to get ahead of the weight. Its very frustrating.
I wouldn't have mined the weight if the fibroids were shrinking, but they obviously aren't. Have any of you ladies had luck with this drug? If so, how long did you have to take it to see results. I wasn't expectign quick fix, but I feel 5-6months is enough time for a medication to work, i.e. if it will at all. My gyno wants me to do another 3month course, but am hesitant. If there was no change for 5 months, what will 3 more months do?.....so frustrating!
