Well , I can totally understand what you're feeling - I don't think I ever faced the prospect of surgery without the worry and anxiety , no matter how many times I was told it was , " Routine " or whatever the phrase was . Of course , not being a doctor , it's not possible to say for sure , but your history of Fibroids could be considered a hopeful sign that it's not something worse . Now , I don't know anything about your family history , but are you worried about something there ? That would be natural for you to think about as well . I have a very good friend who went through the bleeding associated with Fibroids and it can be quite extensive , so even though the last thing anyone wants is surgery , those complications would be balanced with whatever procedure your doctor suggests .
I also wanted to add that I have had a Hysterectomy , and if it comes to that , I would be happy to talk with you about that too . It turned out to be the best thing that could have happened to me at that point because the pain I was in had robbed me of any quality of life . So even in post surgical pain [ and they do help to control that ] I already felt better than when I got there !
So anyway , I'm really glad you posted here - I haven't been on the boards long , but I'm always really impressed by the support the members show one another . I'd appreciate it if you kept me up to date with how you're doing or with any questions you might have . You can always pm me if it feels too private as well . Also what you said about the worrying being a big deal is right on . It's important never to do it alone .
