I'm so upset and worried. I have NO INSURANCE and started having extreme belly pressure & bloating approx. 8 months ago. I get my period still regularly.. Almost to the day. A few months back I was a little late and convinced I was pregnant. I took a home digital pregnancy test that came up positive! I am 40 years old, at that time. Now just turned 41 on March 1st 2018. Anyways, my man & I go to the hospital the test and sonogram there came back as NO pregnancy but showing uterine fibroid or fibroids (?) my scan measures one fibroid.
I go again.. & same diagnosis a couple months later through sonogram.. I had terrible stomach pain and lower right back pain.. Which I still have! The urge to relief myself as soon as any pressure whatsoever!! Peeing, pooping.. Whatever! I can't stand the extra pressure & bloating. This is NOT ME.
I am so scared because I feel my body changing.. See my belly growing! I can hold the damn thing like when I was pregnant with my children.. It's harder to shave my area.. Due to belly swelling.. This is ridiculous! Being I'm NOT PREGNANT. I feel embarrassed & bad about myself.. I am a'Jeans' type girl and always have been.. Now I have to wear streachy pants/ leggings.. Because jeans hurt my belly and I am sizes bigger because of my GUT! it's wearing on my self esteem hugely! Like I said, this started being noticeable to me approximately September 2017.. My weight is going up & up.. Belly ridiculous at this point (for me) my DIET IS THE SAME OR LESS! Being completely honest with myself & everyone! I eat once a day usually. My activity has been less but thats been the case since after finding out about the fibroid..due to our roomate & living situation... I was about 140 lbs max.. And now am 160lbs at this moment! Mostly ALL BELLY! I don't know what to do!! I'm scared & alone (feeling) i hate this so much! Is there any help for people like me, without insurance?? The hospital didn't tell me much of anything I could understand except made me aware of fibroid(s) & strongly suggested follow up with my GYN. But my gyn did not care because I am no longer insured! Lovely right. And I went to him insured (when insured) regularly. I just had a pap/ well womans 2 years ago. Before I lost insurance.
Any help, knowledge about this IS VERY MUCH APPRECIATED!
