    Hi godess,

    i understand how you feel completely, i had large fibroids, i knew i had them. At my daughters engagement party i was dancing and felt something sort of drop, felt very odd. Off to see dr who confirmed dropped uterus and bladder. Saw gyno, in view of all my issues i decided to have hesterectomy, dr said fibroids were very large. So happy i made the choice, five years ago now, i recovered really well, hardly any pain. Was vaginal hyst, only problem is dropped bladder ie prolapse can return, at the moment im very dry down there, and i had hemmerhoid banding done 3 weeks ago.

    like you im feeling uncomfortable, very low in mood  too. Worried these feelings wont improve, menopause is the pits....

    i am on anti depressants for anxiety associated with health worry, i really feel for you. Pain is never easy to cope with, only you can decide to have hysterectomy, but it will fix your problems. I didnt regret my choice.

    its not easy, but rest, maybe use a hot water bottle.

    sending you hugs🌷

    I'd like to suggest you get 2 or 3 professional opinions first. I had a robotic laparospic total hysterectomy 14 mths ago and would have done it differently if given a choice

    Goddess, I know exactly what Julian is like. I couldn't even walk because it felt as if my uterus had fallen. With this said, my mom suggested I do a castor oil pack. Like you I suffer from fibroids & cysts. So I went onto the net found how to do it and had been good until I hit my 50's. My doctor suggested bcp pills that worked really well for a lot of my perimenopause symptoms, fibroids was one of them. When I went off of them, a little pain came back but this time I was given a sheet of exercises to do to help with the pain. Lastly, try taking turmeric to reduce the inflammation. Since taking turmeric I now rarely ever get any pain there. Hope this helps.

    Hi again,

    i was also going to suggest caster oil packs but wasnt sure if it could help fibroid pain.

    also tumeric and cinnamon, as suggested anti inflamatories may help. I used curcumen in tablet form ( tumeric) . Nature provides some wonderful remedies!

    🍀

    Sorry, I am new here. I also have a couple fibriods one of them is quite big: 10cm. Luckily no pain at least not yet, but the size of that thing is scary. Anyhow, have you discussed other options than hysterectomy with your doc and if you have and you are not a candidate for any of those option, may I ask what prevents you from hysterectomy? For me, is the long recovery time. I just can't afford taking 2 months off work.

      I was off work for 8 weeks after my hysterectomy, but my job required heavy lifting and being on my feet for 12hours.

      Had that not been the case the Dr. Said two weeks, even after 8 weeks I now have cervical prolapse.

      I agree with getting plenty of rest, put your feet up and relax helps with the pain. God bless you.

      Thanks, Grace. I can live with two weeks even 3 weeks off work. I haven't discussed the recovery time with my doc yet, as I am waiting to see what the radiologist says on the UFE. If I am not a candiate for that, then I will have a more detailed discussion with my doc. about the open hysterectomy. Have a great day!
