Hi.. I think you should have the ovaries removed...My surgery is scheduled for july 19. My doctor advises that they will remove the ovaries to prevent a cyst from developing...You will be fine don't worry

Hi I am going thru the same thing. I have just had a MRI and I am not a viable candidate for embolization, that I had wanted initially. I am over 50 yrs, and personally I don't have any bleeding, but extreme bloating, back aches, constipation etc. My doctor said that two of my fibroids are about the size of a babies head, one has a stem off of it! I now have to decide on a hysterectomy. I initially thought the lathcropic (sp) method, but my friend says it's better to have the old fashioned bikini cut..I want to keep my ovaries also, as I don't have any breast cancer in my family. I don't know what to do, so I don't do anything....I have been dealing with this for almost 10 years...any ideas? Kris

Has anyone heard of having a fibroid after a hys. The Dr told me I have a 3 inch fibroid even tho I got hys 26 years ago. Cant find any information on the internet. First he wanted to do surgery, now he wants to wait till Oct. and we will see. He said it wasent cancer so we would wait. Very confused.I go to a free clinic, and I appreaciate everything they do. But Im not to confident with him, because he changed his mind.

I am trying to decide whether to have a partial hysterectomy (ovaries stay)but I am really concerned about the emotional roller-coaster ride I may have. Although my doctor says by leaving the ovaries this won't happen. Any problems again on that roller coaster? Thanks for any response.

Yes. Abdomen swelling, backaches (rec'vd prescription for Ibuprofin 800 to help), clotting & excessive bleeding, extreme low iron levels, digestive problems, plus hormonal(emotional)fluctuations/imbalances. Too much fun for what seems like -a little thing. Best wishes to you...Stay Strong. Stay informed. See your obgyn.

Hi there. I wanted to let you know that I personally was back to work after 2 1/2 weeks (my partial hysterectomy was Sept. 3rd & I work in an office). That first week and a half back, I worked six hours days (9-3pm). I wanted to be sure that I was physically able make it thru the day. Other than my hormones kicking off & on I did fine. At my four week check up, my obgyn said that it was ok for my to go back to all my normal stuff: household chores, exercising, and even jumping up & down if I wanted to, lol. And I did. Physically, I definately feel better than I have in at least a year. No more bloating, no more back aches, no more major hormonal upheavals... I feel great. I won't lie...the first week after the surgery I wondered if I had made the right decision by having the surgery (my emotions/ hormones had me 'down' and crying off and on for no apparent reason - were bothering me way more than any pain). But, after three weeks of having the surgery, I knew that I'd definately made the right decision. I feel 'alive' again. It was all worth it!! Sherri

I too have fibroids of 12 and 17 cm. The second doctor says that I'm at 24 weeks. My pain is mostly during my cycle and feels like I'm passing something instead of flowing. I'm pretty full, I have to run to the rest room. Most of all I have noticed that I feel like there's something in the way. My muscles don't feel like muscles and I am afraid there getting bigger and bigger. How did your surgery go? How long before you got back to exercising? What were the after symptoms.

You could always get a second opinion. I had my total hysterectomy on Sept 10/2004 and have started my 3rd week of recovery.I`m only realizing now about all the terrible symptoms I was living with for so long,that have absolutly disappeared. Hysterectomy isn`t for everyone but it sure was the answer for me. P.S I`m 48 and I had two fibroids that were 7.2cm and 8cm plus multiple smaller ones.

Hi Sherri, Thought I would reply to your post since I`m going through what you are about to. June 16,I was diagnosed with multiple uterin fibroids,two are the size of a babies head when its born and theres other smaller ones.I have a complete hysterectomy scheduled for Sept10.It would have been sooner but my surgeon had 2wks holiday and I thought it would be better to have him refreshed as opposed to anticipating his holidays.lol Anyways,I`m pretty full in my pelvic area and it affects almost all of my bodily functions.I find that if I wait too long to urinate..I can`t flow,it just dribbles. I can`t wait till this thing is over and I`m on my way to recovering. You can mail me anytime with ? or comments. Elaine

Did you follow thru with the hysterectomy? I just had an ultrasound done today and the sonagrapher mentioned that my ovaries looked good, but it appears that I may have 2 fibroids within my uterus. I'm not sure as of yet what I will do. Next week I have an appt. w/ an OBGYN. Please reply to this with how things went for you and how you are feeling. Thanks. Sherri

I'm scheduled to have an hysterectomy due to fibroids. My Dr. is urging me to remove my ovaries as well even though I have no family history. I am 43 yrs old and uncertain of the effects of HRT. Also, if the hysterectomy is done vaginally, how long before I am up and about. I'm supposed to go on a trip 2 weeks after the sceduled surgery. Do I need to rescedule it? HELP! I'm so confused!
