About 6 months ago my period went crazy, I was bleeding for 20 odd days stopping for 3 days then starting again, and I was very heavy and also passing huge clots. GP gave me tablets to regulate them which cut it down to about 12 days each time but didn't alter the heaviness or clots. Then I started to get lower back pain and a constant ache in my abdomen. GP referred me for an ultrasound which revealed small cysts on my uterus, and a huge one bigger than a grapefruit on my right ovary. I have seen a gynaecologist who took a tissue sample from my womb and did a blood test. I see him for the results on 20th Feb. He says it has to be removed surgically and they cant do keyhole surgery because of its size. My symptoms are much worse now, Im getting breathless and struggle to stand for long periods due to the backache. I also need to wee constantly when Im lying down, and feel so bloated and have horrid indigestion.
I could really do with some advice, particularly about what to expect from the operation as im terrified. Also Im worried as Im on antidepressants, will the anethetist work around them as I cant just stop taking them. Any advice would be greatly appreciated thankyou.
