So yesterday I had another appointment with my gyno and after being on Esmya for one course and no shrinkage of my 2x 9cm fibroids and too many to measure in the utereus (doctors words not mine) I came to the agonising decision to have a hysterectomy. Sits down telling him how Im on my second course of Esmya but still having alot of pelvic and lower back pain when Im on or off the tablets so now I want the hysterectomy. Firstly he says that fibroids course no pain. Then he feels my tummy and said it feels like they have shrunk , how he can remember the exact lumpy feeling from 3 months ago is beyond me . With all that said he is ok for me to go ahead with the op which is a 4 month waiting list in the uk he fills out the paperwork and points out how sometimes the bladder and bowel can be damaged in surgery and I will have a cesarean scar across my tummy.
Im 53 so had my children and I know menopause can shrink them however I have had hot flashes for the past 2 years and periods are as regular as clockwork so really not sure wether to carry on finish esmya and just take painkillers to get me through or bite the bullet and go for it like my family are saying. Im so confused right now any advice out there?
