What us the best course of action for a very painful fibroid. I have already been treated for 3 months with a drug called esmya which stopped the pain but can only be taken for 3 months and the pain has since returned. The fibroid is approx 3pm and on the back wall of the womb. Joanne Clark
Thanks my Doctor has only mentioned hysterectomy...and I understand Lupron is only a temporary solution and the fobroids often return,. Also the fact it carries risks of bone disease as well. Was hoping for a reduction in oestrogen or removal of the fibroid. thanks tho.
Yes very helpful thank you...I am not sure I want to risk bone deterioratrion either. At present I am not sure if there is a suitable treatment for me but you have been most helpful. We have got the fibroid down from 2.2 inches to 3.2mm so I may continue with alternative therapies and healing. Or tale another 3 month course of esmya, Thank you so much, Joanne Clark
