Hi there. Dr. found a largish fibroid on the front of my uterus a year ago. I had enough symptoms that I considered hysterectomy but ended up having another needed surgery first (thyroidectomy). So, a year later and the fibroid is now 12.1x11.8x10.8. Dr is saying too large to shrink enough (with Depo Luprin shots) so recommending abdominal hysterectomy. I am in agreement. Here's my questions for all of you: How long did you take off from work? Was there anything you did to help better prepare you? Any suggestions? Etc. I'm 43, so I'm ok with the surgery but I'm scared since the last abdominal surgery I had was 14 years ago and it was my csection.
Thanks for any advice your willing to share.
