Don't know which way to turn
I am 44 years old. I have had a large fibroid removed by surgery 8 years ago. I now have an 8cm fibroid with poor vascularisation and an oedema inside I also have other fibroids only two of which are being counted at the moment as they are around 2.5cm in diameter I have recently been diagnosed with chronic anemia (red cells 6.7) – though am on iron supplement oral - and have had a couple of intravenous packs.
I am currently in France, where they would like to whip out my uterus. I have not had children, and was hoping to try for one in the next year before it really is too late.
I have been prescribed progesterone to help diminish the bleeding while I get my head round having a hysterectomy.
Is there any chance I could reduce the fibroid, and keep the others at bay and get pregnant?
Do you have any thoughts on this? If so I would appreciate them. Needless to say I am devastated about my situation, and after crying a lot, I have started the inevitable trawl through the web to see if there are any alternatives or answers out there.
I notice one or two firms in the USA offering enzymes etc to reduce oestrogen levels and thereby shrink the tumours. Is this all pie in the sky – and seeing as my largest fibroid has an oedema, would this rule me out of trying to shrink it?
Many thanks in advance for your help.
