Hello. This is my first post on this group. I have just been diagnosed with a 9cm subserol fibroid - originally picked up incidentally following an MRI scan.
I am peri-menopausal and haven't had a period since March 2016. Recently I've felt mild menstrual cramps and occasional sharp pains. No other menstrual symptoms. However I have been suffering from IBS, bloating, heaviness and pressure in that area for a while - I just didn't think it could be a fibroid. I have suffered chronic back pain all my life but in the last 2 months the pain has been quite severe and isn't improving. I also have a retroverted uterus.
My question is have any of you been in similar circumstances? Have you had the fibroid removed - I really would rather it gone - but would only risk if it could alleviate my symptoms which are starting to get me down.
