I've had a nightmare story with Fibroids. I'm 31 and had 4 blood transfusions this year due to how bad my bleeding was. I had one Fibroid removed initially which didn't help and then the consultant didn't want to remove the other large fibroid due to how high up in the uterus it was. I was told to have Embolisation and then another consultant told me not to have this done as I don't have children yet. Then another consultant told me to have the cesarean cut to remove the large fibroid. There was so many various conflicing that opinions I didn't know what to do. In the end I requested they tried to remove the 5cm Fibroid through vaginal resection, the consultant agreed but said it would probably be impossible to reach the fibroid, (before this another consultatant refused the surgery) when I woke up they told me they removed 2 small fibroids and 3cm of the big 5cm one, it felt like an absolute miracle to me considering no consultant wanted to do this minimally invasive operation. I'm one week post and feel great, I'm symptom free and almost fibroid free to. Perhaps more will grow in the future and perhaps the partially removed one will still grow but it feels like they have found a great cure for me for now which should last a number of years at least. It took me 10 months of heavy bleeding every single day to get this sorted. In the 10 months I've had various public flooding/gushing accidents, was out of breath climbing 2 flights of stairs, looked as pale as a ghost and looked pregnant thank god it's over.
