I've just been diagnosed with a fibroid tumor. It's about the size of an orange. My periods were extremely heavy with a lot of clotting and lasting 2weeks at a time. My doctor put me on birth control pills and iron pills, my blood count is low so i'm anemic. I started taking vitex and lydia pinkham. I was wondering if anyone knew of anything that would shrink the tumor. :?
I went through same thing six years ago. Cyst and 13 fibroid tumor. I went to 3 doctors all suggested hysterectomy. My aunt, a registered nurse for 30yrs told me to look for another opinion. To make a long story short. I had surgery 6years ago. My bowels wrapped around my lower intestines. Emergency rushed to surgery. Took almost a year to fully heal. Last i could feel a fibroid when i sat. I did a body detox and began Fiboid buster. Up to 3months ago I was using fibroid buster kit off of dherbs.com. I lost income and could afford it anymore. I believe it shrunk down enough so I don't feel it when I sit. This fibroid extends navel to rectum it will take a while to shrink. Diet is important no sugar, meat, nor milk. I thought that could use soy but effects estrogen levels.
I would just like to say that while a lot of women are scared, I had my hysterectomy June 26th, almost two weeks ago. I was so scared. I was online looking at blogs and trying to find alternatives, there really were none. I had one fibroid tumor, it was as big as a cantaloupe!! surgery was 5 1/2 hours long, but when I woke up from surgery, I could tell a huge difference. I am able to do many things, and before I had my surgery, I was tired, depressed...just unmotivated...I now feel like a million freaking dollars....while some women have issues with sexual dysfunction since their surgery, I am here to tell you that it must not be the case for all women, because it is the same. No I am not having sex...but I am a very sexual person...and I was terrified after reading some of these blogs when women would say their sex life deteriorated after surgery...they say boys have wet dreams...well, I know my body must have been sending me a signal that all was well because I had one!!!! went to get my stitches out day before yesterday and my dr told me it was ok for me to have an orgasm, as long as I didnt have intercourse...i rushed home to make sure that I wasn't totally dreaming, and let me tell you, it was the same as before surgery...I just want to reassure some women out there, it is ok!!! you will be ok!!!
I had a partial hyst- just the uterus as everything else was fine. I had 15 fibroids that I counted on the MRI on July 2, 2012. I was hospitalized for 2 days and am home now. I had a fibroid about the size of a softball and others the size of walnuts. I thought about having them lasered off but decided because of the size and quantity, that I needed the hyst. I am 46 so I am not looking at having any more children. My uterus was the size of a volleyball instead of normal size of your palm. My periods were painful and extreme bleeding. I think this was the best thing for me. Will keep you updated about my post surgery adventures.
