Hi everyone ,I am 52 and I was diagnosed with fibroids last August after feeling sick every day constant lower back pain and shooting pains in the vagina and tummy. After several water infections and anti biotics later I said enough is enough and went back to the doctors yet again and she found a lump in my lower tummy .1 week later I was sent for a scan where 2 x 9cm fibroids were discovered and many smaller ones. After seeing the gyno he gave me a choice of hysterectomy or Esmya so in January 2017 I was hopeful these would work. I must say I felt better on them could even bend down without pain . After finishing the 3 month course the symptoms returned. Yesterday I went for another scan and its revealed that there is no shrinkage at all in fact she said they look a little bigger. Now I need to wait 4 weeks to see the gyno again where I hope the hysterectomy is still an option and get rid of these freaky fibroids that have changed my life since last August.The one question I do have is does anyone else NOT suffer with heavy periods with fibroids because my periods are light but painful .
