HI, I'm hoping someone can help me as I'm worried sick.
I've had fibroids previously which have caused very heavy bleeding and extreme pain, like worse than labour, having been admitted to hospital with the pain many times. I am also very anaemic through the constant heavy periods.
Over the last few months I was put on the depo injection, which I constantly spotted throug, and also gained a stone in weight, so my doctor took me off this but the spitting has continued. I have had no proper period for about 6 months.
I have, in the last two months, started getting severe lower back pain and my stomach is very swollen. My bladder is also very sensitive in the fact that I'm waking up in the night to go to the toilet, and visiting there a lot more frequently in the day also.I visited my gp on Friday, 8th May, and after an examination she told me that my womb is swollen to the size of a 4 month pregnancy.
Now I have only been suffering these new symptoms the last two or so months but I am worried sick it is more than fibroids. My Gp has sent off for me to have an urgent scan to rule out cancer. She said she is 90% sure it is nothing serious, but you can't help but worry.
Has anyone else had these symptoms from fibroids?
Many thanks in advance.
