Hi everyone, I've never joined a forum before, I just read everyone else's, but as I'm desperate for anyone's help or advice I have decided to join.
I am nearly 51 years old and have a 3cm fibroid which was discovered after having the marina Coil removed after 8 years. I sometimes bleed heavily with clots for 3-4 days and my periods are all over the place. Sometimes 32 days apart then 18 days apart. My gynaecologist who says I am perimenopausal first suggested an endometrial ablation, but then I read about Esmya and thought it might help shrink the fibroid, stop this horrendous bleeding and give me some time to see if the menopause will kick in, as you can use it for up to a year, which would then make me 52. I am terrified of having a general anasthetic which is what I would have to have for the ablation as the last anasthetic I had some 20 years ago, I woke up on the operating table and remember the whole experience. I am slowly going crazy with worry as not sure which option to choose, can anyone give me their experiences of either?
