Very large fibroid

Hi everyone the last few weeks I have suffered low back pain as posted before I have a 18 cm fibroid and my TAH is on 17th April has anyone else had back pain with fibroids? Just wondered if that is one of the symptoms as it is very painful. X

      Hi Jardine, about the bowel problem, i was told to take Movicol, it is about £8 for a box of 20 sachets but after taking only 5 i was feeling good again and so far things seem to be ok. Ask your doctor if it will be ok for you to take. x

      Jardine, the hospital phoned me yesterday to ask if i was ok after my op and asked the usual questions, have you passed water and motions, i told the nurse i had been bloated and had taken the Movicol and she said that was good as the lactose could have made the bloating worse!

      It was a chemist that  advised me about the product. x

    Yes I get back pain periodically. Normally accompanied with cramps, pressure and spotting. I never used to know why I was getting all these back aches but I am pretty sure it's the fibroids now. Paracetamol, water bottle and lots of pillows in bed usually help a lot.

    Good luck on the 17th, hope it's the end of the back aches and other symptoms and the start of a pain free existence.

      Hi angel arnt getting any spotting though as I had Mirian coil fitted due to severe bleeding which appears to have stopped now and haven't had a period for a couple of months but I'm still anemic which I hope will get better in time. The lower back pain feels like I'm carrying a sap. Will be glad when it's over as I'm so stressed thanks. X
