Yes periods are heavy - I take mefenamic acid and tranexamic acid tablets during a period. I also take iron tablets as last year I was anaemic due to heavy periods. I also suffer with irregular bleeds.
I am presuming so as I feel better - not as breathless and not as much fatigue. I have not had a blood test to confirm that though. I am now most worried about the fibroid growing in size and what I can do about that. I understand the anemia is a concern. Last year I also had pneumonia and suffered costachondritis at the same time as being admitted to hospital with a pelvic bleed due to the fact the uterus/fibroid pushed out the coil. Sorry if this all sounds confusing.. i am trying to work out the best thing to do about this large fibroid other health issues have improved although I do have chest pains as a result of the chest infection and inflammation.
I have been advised all other treatment is not possible only options are either hysterectomy, mymectomy or do nothing. I have been told doing nothing is not a good solution as symptoms are likely to deteriate due to size and position of fibroid and my age. Do I allow the fibroid to grow in size and wait to see how I fair? Is that a good approach? I do have a lot of anxiety about surgery so maybe that is best thank you for your advice.
