Uterine Fibroid Problem   Posted By Sabina    Date : 10-Mar-08   09:35 AM     Reply


I am 43 years old. Felt fortunate to have come across your site. I was detected with fibroids at the age of 38 years when the size of the biggest fibroid was 5.5 cm x 6.5 cm and 2 small fibroids. The then doctor advised surgery but I thought I'd wait and watch. Over a period of 5 years , the biggest one has grown to 8.0 cm x 7.5 cms (12 wk pegnency size). During this period have tried all sorts of options -- Birth Control Pills, Homeopathy, Allopathy ... All these years I have had heavy bleeding for 2 days and my period lasted for 6-7 days. The cycle was regular. Since October'07 the cycle has gone erratic and periods last from anything between 10-15 days. In October '07 my periods stopped after 16 days after the Doctor gave me 'Trapic MF' to stop the bleeding. The only 'Treatment Option' I got from her was 'Hysterectomy'(She knew I had a Medical Insurance). She also asked me to take a course of 'Clingen Plus' just in case there was an infection. December, January, Februay --- my periods lasted from 7 to 10 days. This month (March), today is the 13th day and it is still on .. accompanied with pelvic pressure thought the bleeding was not heavy for the first time in 6 years. Today I have started with 'Trapic MF' again. Lets see how it goes ... I'm confused what to do .. should I go ahead with Hysterectomy ... are my fibroids too big or is it common to have such symptoms at this age? But after reading comments from my other friends, I am skeptical about surgical procedures. Please Help !!!

Thanks & best regards
