I had a miscarriage back in 2011 and was told I had fibroids and cysts after the midwife spotted it during ultrasound. I went for an MRI scan which confirmed this and also had a procedure done with a gynaecologist to examine them during an operation to remove my gall bladder. One measured approx. 5cm but I was told that I had no symptoms so they wouldn't do anything, which was fine.
Since being diagnosed, I've had constant urine infections which sometimes show bacteria after culture but sometimes come back clear, lower back pain (physio says it's pelvic pain), bloating, sharp pain and really bad stomach cramp during my periods. My periods are heavy to start but lighter as week goes on and are always regular. I also feel really uncomfortable down below and need to urinate all the time but was told this is due to the uti's.
I've had numerous antibiotics for urine infections and have just recently had a cystoscopy done where my urethra was widened due to extreme scarring caused by the infections. Every time I mention these symptoms in relation to fibroids I'm told they have nothing to do with uti or lower back pain.
Anyone else experiencing these symptoms? I already have a wee boy who I had in 2009 and nothing was spotted on those ultrasounds. I also don't know what type of fibroid I have
