Hey all. Just wanted to offer some encouragement. I doubt that anyone will remember me but I had two surgeries to remove 7-8 fibroids in August of ‘16. I had all types of fibroids, mostly intramural. I had a D and C and then a laparoscopic myomechtomy. I almost had a breakdown before my surgeries. I was crying to the point of dry heeving, snapping at my family, and just basically scared that I was going to die. I found this group and I think I spazzed out on here as well.
I’m happy to report that I am fibroid free at almost the 1.5 year mark. I got the results of my ultra sound last week. I didn’t realize how bad my periods had gotten until after the surgery. I was coming on twice a month and had unpredictable cycles. Today my cycle comes once a month and lasts 4-5 days. My “heavy” days have all but disappeared.
Please don’t be scared to have the surgery. The worst thing for me was the trapped gas in my body and anesthesia. For some reason it took me a couple of months to completely lose the groggy feeling. Otherwise, two days post surgery I was walking up and down my road.
