I've just found out that Esmya has been withdrawn since February 2018 by happening to stumble across this news on the internet. I did one course of it which didn't work anyway, in fact largest fibroid just grew even more. I'm on the waiting list for sub-total abdominal hysterectomy after seeing both NHS and private consultant for a second opinion.
Anyway, it appears we now have our livers to worry about as well - oh joy!
My first diagnosis scan for fibroids showed a liver cyst as well. But nobody told me about it until being seen privately beginning of February...by this time I'd just finished a three month course of Esmya in January ......
My question is.....after August's scan and subsequent follow up with NHS consultant to discuss findings, why wasn't my liver cyst even brought to my attention firstly, then to be advised I could try Esmya?! Either liver cysts aren't considered a liver problem (fair enough) or my scan wasn't read properly by the NHS consultant so Esmya was given as an option. It clearly states on the paper that comes with the pills under people that shouldn't take Esmya ...."people with liver problems".
I'm hoping my blood tests, that I'm insisting on having, come back clear! Had another scan in February to see Esmyas effects and I asked her to look at my liver which she did thoroughly. I'd like to hope I'd have been told if there was anything to worry about, so I feel I'm worrying about nothing, but am still annoyed with lack of information about all of this issue ....why has my doctor not asked to see me?
Love to hear your thoughts!
As if we don't have enough to contend with 😮
