(Click on the video below) This is probably the most personal thing I’ve shared here on my blog and via social media concerning my health. Right now I don’t know what’s going to happen next. I had an MRI yesterday 4/5/2023 because of a CT scan my primary care physician ordered 3/24/2023.
I want to bring more awareness to fibroids. Now I’m being recommended for a hysterectomy, I was a bit shocked. I used to think ‘old ladies’ got those. But now that I’ve had a few days to think and watch some YouTube videos about the procedure I’m coming to terms with it.
Right now I’m very uncomfortable. And I’m aware that there are natural remedies to get rid of them that don’t involve surgery. However I don’t feel like based on the size of my largest one that changing my diet and waiting for them to shrink would make sense in my case. My largest fibroid measures 19.3 x 16.5 2 12.3 cm. The smaller one measures 5 x 3.4 x 5.4 cm.
And now that explains why I’m having so much discomfort. I actually converted centimeters to inches and let’s just say I’m pretty shocked that I’m carrying these around in my abdomen. It feels like I’m 8 months pregnant because my breathing is labored. I can’t comfortably bend over to put on my shoes or walk up and down the stairs without feeling winded. I assume that’s because of the fibroids pushing on my other organs.
Many folks would NOT share something like this but I say, it’s my blog and I’ll share what I want to. I wish I had known more about fibroids before this happened to me. So that’s why I’m sharing my journey now. Check out the short video below.
