I've posted here a few times now and you've all been great so was looking to hear some experiences with large fibroids + esmya + gym exercise. I have one large one that's probably between 12-13cm now. I'm sure there's smaller ones that we just can't see too.
My lower back has been hurting for about 6 months now, especially when I bend, and has been getting progressively worse. I also can't really bend sideways to the left because that causes an intense pain on the right side. There are certain exercises that are just getting really painful. E.g.
-planking/mountain climbers: the lower back hurts and i feel like the weight makes me sink
-floor exercises on my back: eg leg raises, scissor legs etc anything that involves bending the abdomen
I'm also finding that I'm much weaker than i used to be. It's really a confronting experience to just consistently get weaker. It's not really cardio, but more strength that's suffering.
I did have a couple weeks off exercise over Christmas break so i know there's a transition period but the pain has just increased dramatically the last 2 weeks.i almost cried in class this week lol Admittedly I did have my period this week and since I started Esmya, wasn't using Tranexamic Acid to save me. (Omg I forgot how horrible life was before that magic pill)
So what have your experiences been with exercise? Do you find pushing through the pain made things worse in general, did it cause any other issues? Did you get weaker/stronger with Esmya? Did you discover ways to reduce the pain? Did you give up on exercise? Is there anything you want to get off your chest and share?!
Thanks ladies x
