Small subserosal fibroid

Posted , 4 users are following.


I'm waiting for a lap next week. Been told I have a small fibroid 

could this really cause back pain, vagina pain and stomach pains? 

Or something else would cause this?

thank you

    Hello wendywoo54

    I got 14 cm big fibroid and just had procedure 3 weeks ago uterin fibroid emboilazation . I never had back pain or any type of pain . Only major problem I had was very heavy periods . They use to last two two weeks and used to take medicine to stop them . They also made me anemic twice in past two years . Now hoping procedure will work and fibroids will shrink and will have normal periods .

    Hi Wendy,

    Yes even small fibroids can cause those symptoms. I also have vagina pain that means it hurts to sit down on a chair sometimes unless it is soft. I do not read of others talking about that much, so I am interested to hear that someone else has it. I do not get the back pain much but it depends where the fibroids are positioned. Stomach pains yes and mine can be a tingling felt throughout the pelvis. I would advise anyone  to read up on the different types of fibroids and what treatments are available and be sure before making a decision on treatment. It is your choice. I have started on Esmya a new tablet licenced to help shrink them. It is a progesterone selective receptor. I researched it and requested it. There have not been miracles yet but some improvement. I hope you are sure with what you are having done. It must be your choice and not what the doctor prefers to do.  Best wishes
