So I've been diagnosed with an unusual fibroid. It's been called a bizarre, complex fibroid with endometriosis that's growing out of my uterus completely filling the pouch of Douglas. It was last measured in July at 13cm and previous to that, it was 7cm 2 years ago, so it's growing steadily. It's fully encapsulated but there's a 7cm lesion within it that is blood filled and another part that they're unsure of. They don't think it's malignant. And they also think some of it is endometriosis. It looks like it might have adhered to my sigmoid and possibly my ovaries.
The consultant (general gynae but specialises in oncology) admitted it was very unusual and its been difficult for them to diagnose. They have suggested I have a 6 month trial of zoladex (chemical menopause) to shrink it and then 'we'll see'. I'm not happy with the unsure diagnosis, and the cancer question not being answered so I've decided not to start on zoladex until I know more. I've asked to see the endometriosis specialist so I'm just waiting to hear back about that (it's a long story that I'm trying to keep brief).
While I've been going all this with the drs, I decided to try some natural approaches. I've started using bio identical progesterone cream and serrapeptase. I'm now on my 2nd cycle of using this and I'm feeling a lot of things happening. I'm just trying to work out if this is a positive sign or not.
My main symptoms are extreme chronic fatigue and severe lower back pain. I also experience abdominal bloating and abdominal pain, however this is more intermittent and less troubling than the fatigue and lower back pain. I dint have any bleeding issues. My periods are light and short. Since starting the cream, my back pain has increased significantly, to the point that it is now constant and an intense. I am also experiencing very unusual abdominal sensations of pulling sharp pains and the feeling of things moving, especially around where I think my ovaries are.
I was wondering if anyone else who's successfully shrunk fibroids has experienced this? Does it just when they shrink?
I'm also wondering if anyone has experienced fibroids being adhered to parts of their body and what happens when they shrink?
Any info would be appreciated! Thanks x
