Okay I had 17 fibroids and polyps removed in August of 2015 healed pretty good have a bikini cut scar. So the reason I didnt have a partial hysterectomy then was because then I was 48 now I am 49 and know I will be going into menopause soon enough which in turn will stop feeding these things! I have always had hard periods since I was 11. In fact some of these fibroids were huge and my uterus was even tipped up because of them. I was using the restroom constantly before the surgery. They were pushing on my bladder. So fast forward to a few months ago I thought okay why is my stomach huge AGAIN. I am in pretty decent shape and although muscular always had a flat stomach. Well my flat stomach was quite short lived. I started taking black cohosh thinking well it may help with my hormones started having bad mood swings thinking probably menopause NOT. In fact called my gyno and she had me get another ultra sound low and behold 5 tumors are back and uterus is enlarged AGAIN!! So she said let me just take it out and I agreed. My doctors office just called now and honestly I feel much better. Apparently you can have prolapse of your vaginal wall regardless of surgery or not just do to menopause. So of course I will call in all my prayer warriors so this will not happen! Please God. Also, I found out I was feeding these fibroids with the black cohosh so obviously I immediately stopped taking that a few months back. The pharmicist said it was okay but I am sure she did not know my whole background its still synthetic hormones. Lastly, I am bleeding like crazy right now and I just finished my period on the 27th of June???? Yes, you guessed it FIBROIDS are causing this. I do praise God that all the fibroids and polyps were all benign last August and of course I am praying for the same outcome at then end of this month. I am blessed to have one of the best femail gynos out there and a believer so I am 2 for 2 in that area. God bless all of you who are going through similar situations its hard. Keep the faith. . I will have my preop appointment on the 25th of July and if I have more questions will ask. I am keeping my cervix and my ovaries, she said in women under 65 we dont take them and will let my body do its natural progression of menopause.
