I'm 31 and a mum of two gorgeous boys. I knew I had this bloomin great fibroid well before I had my first baby (3 yrs) and had a good pregnancy with no problems and a normal delivery too. My second baby however was breech (because of the 10x9x9cm fibroid) and had to be delivered by c.section.
Now, call me a wimp, but I have never felt pain like I did after that c.section and am not looking forward to going through similar pain again. I could barely lift my newborn afterwards, now he is 7mths old and a real bruiser at 18lbs.....I'm just not going to be able to lift him am I let alone my toddler?
My recovery is going to be a nightmare because although my family will be around as much as I need them to be, my husband helps but he just isn't the sympathetic type and he really doesn't understand how big this op is I don't think.
I'm meant to be going in for the pre-op at the end of this month with surgery soon after but I'm just so worried about how I'll cope afterwards trying to look after my family.
Should I try something else like herbal remedies to shrink the thing, or just postpone the whole thing? I want it out because I have dreadfully painful periods and I'm fed up of people looking at me funny, thinking I look pregnant pushing my baby and toddler around the town!
Any advice or thoughts would be gratefully received. Has anyone been in a similar situation and come out the other end unscathed?
Thanks for your time.
