I'm almost 50, have 4 kids and not having any more. I was just diagnosed with 3 large fibroids this week. I've had the heavy cycles, clotting, pains in legs, abdomen, lower back, dizziness, overall blahs and exhausted for years. Don't sleep, have bladder leakage, and I've gained 12 lbs in 3 weeks. I can't exercise because of the pain and having no energy. I eat healthy overall and take care of myself.The doctor's never found anything at all until last week !? Just last year I was told I was on the '5 year plan' for exams.
Just wondering what other women of my age brackett and family style have done in the past. I can not afford to miss a lot of work and down time but I can not live like this knowing now what I have and that I have options. I'm thinking of going straight to a hysterectomy just to get it all over with but does anyone else have a better idea or option out there?
I have no emotional support, so far I've been told to 'suck it up' and it will be okay.......not right.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
