having read all your postings.I feel assured that am not going through this whole painful and inconviencing process that seems to want to mess life up.
I suffer similar symptoms mentioned in the discussion. I had the surgery done in 2005 which lead to some complications, and as a result of that I can no longer wear any bikini and the fibroids have all grown again (very large). I have had severe scan and the thought of undergoing another surgery scares me and stresses me every single day. I do not feel there is huge awareness and research being carried out on fibroid as the cells are benign and not cancerous - which am i am incerdible thankful to God for. I am looking to create an awareness amongst women and the society on fibroid & fertility. Furthermore, push for more research (through charity work) to be done in looking for a permanent cure to fibroids which affects womens health and fertility amongst women. I can not do this on my own. I will like your support, some women I have met find it embarrassing to talk about fibroid which I share and understand.One lady told me, it is culturally unacceptable because when people around her community know about it, you do not stand the chance of getting married as having children can not be forseen as it affects fertility. I have had embarrasing moments where people keep asking for when the baby will arrive and congratulations on being pregnant. As someone who likes fitted dresses (clothings)-I can no longer wear them as I have to change my wardrobe for clothes that can hid the fibroids . please your thoughts on this issue will be highly appreciated. please kindly email me.
