Concerned about the new diagnosis of 15x14 cm fibroid causing me paralyzing low back pain and discha

Posted , 3 users are following.

So Ive noticed that my last 3 menstrual cycle leading to severe rectum and low abdominal pressure along with abdominal bloating. The killer being the severe lower back pain. An ultrasound revealed 15×14 cm fibroids. Im researching came across this forum which has provided some relief Im 48 and a hysterectomy is the least option I would like to consider. Ive researched Medeterian diet Magnesium and Vitamin D as things to incorporate.

Any one ever experienced these symptoms. The ER doc says my vaginal discharge is actually urine from my compressed bladder

    Hi Stacey,

    i have had fibroids cause all kinds of issues too, but mine arent as big . my uterus was 12 cm thick though because of the bleeding that the fibroids caused . once the extensive bleeding got under control from a med i was put on called fibristal it shrunk the fibroids and my uterus went down in size thank god ! what a nightmare it was so i hear ya !

    i had bloating and every other symptom too.

    have ya seen a Gynocoligest ? thats what i did ,and he figured it all out by doing 2 transvaginal ultrasounds and tons of blood work and then a biopsy. when he did the biopsy he removed a polyp that was visable too so that was a good thing cause i didnt know i had it there . biospy came back normal and after taking that fibristal for 3 monthes straight it solved my issues . im almost 50 now and my cycles are starting to go further apart now and also skipping about every other month . i went with those options because if i didnt i would of had to have a hystorectomy . i have alot of the menopause symptoms and know that its just a phase but i hope the phase ends soon cause its not been a joy ride . lord bless us all .

    hugs to ya and stay strong cause theyll get it figured out 😃
