Hello,
i am new here so hello everyone.
I have a fairly large fibroid which my doctor has been following for over 4 years. Lately it has grown a lot and she is sending me to a gynocologist. The waiting period is long and lately my abdomen is always swollen like it's going to bust. My husband teases me about being pregnant. Until I see the specialist, is there anything I can do to alleviate the bloating? I look the same as when I was 6 months pregnant.

Thanks

Please don't let them take too long in taking action on the fibrod. My mother was told her stomach was big because she was over weight. One day she went to emergency room and we almost lost her,due to low blood count. She had a 22lb tumor removed the next day they almost had to give her a hysterectomy it was so large it moved her intestents over. I wish you lots of luck

Swollen Belly Because of Large Fibroids
Thank you so much for replying. As for the diet you're suggesting, I will certainly try harder, but I already do a lot of those things (no salt, lots of water, little meat etc) I certainly have to increase raw veg. I was wondering about acupuncture, I have just called to make an appointment with a naturopath (not sure what they're called in english), but they use natural remedies.
Your poor mom, I hope she is ok. I have done some blood test lately, but results are not in yet.

Hi this is my first time ever on a forum. I too have been diagnosed with a suserosal fibroid that has been growing. I have a petite build with a belly that looks like I am 6 months pregnant. It is getting me very down, esp. when people ask how far along I am. I was very interested to read that you are going to try acupuncture. I have never been a believer in Eastern medicine; however, I am definitly willing to try it. Did you go and see the naturopath and try the acupuncture? I would love to hear how that went. My doctor has referred me to an interventional radiologist to get an embolization done. I am terrified.
