After giving my body a chance to rid itself of multiple fibroids that were having a huge impact on my life I was left with no further options and had a TAH Friday 11th May 2018. I am 53 now and was diagnosed almost 2 years ago and was advised that weighing under 11 stone ( I was almost 12 stone) would help relief symptoms I was getting . So I lost 3 stone in 8 months ( and kept it off) but still no relief. I was given Esmya , which did relieve the symptoms and was great for me. I continued to take another 2 courses but scans showed the reduction in size was only 1cm . My biggest fibroid was 9cm. I kept putting the op off I was under no pressure to have it from my gyno as he kept saying these tablets will take you to the menopause. However that hope came crashing down in March 2018 when esmya was pulled off the market and with it my hope of shrinking these critters.I didnt make this choice lightly but I needed to weigh up the quality of life I was getting.I'm lucky my womb has done its job and gave me 2 lovely sons its no longer needed .
Got a long recovery ahead its early days but already I have noticed I can hold my bladder for longer. This sight has been valuable to me over the past 2 years and I want to say good luck to everyone here xxx
