Can you do at home heat treatments for fibroids?


Originally written 2011/11/01

This is just something I’m wondering about after reading about MR guided focused ultrasound technology, which is a non-invasive heat treatment option for getting rid of certain tumors including uterine fibroids. I get that they’re not talking about your everyday heat treatment when they talk about this ultrasound technology that beams and “heats and destroys targeted tissue”, but I still wonder if possibly it might be helpful to start using a heating pad as part of my daily routine in my effort to treat my fibroids. I’m thinking it might be worth a shot. What’s the worse that could happen? Hopefully it won’t have the opposite effect and stimulate the fibroids and make them grow bigger and multiply.

My name is Monica. I have fibroids. My fibroids are large enough that they have transformed my figure into something I am still trying to learn how to live with. In the meantime while I try to learn how to live with my fibroids I am also trying every possible method I can find to try to shrink them naturally because I am afraid of the idea of a hysterectomy. I lived with fibroids from 2007 - 2016. I started documenting my experiences on this blog in 2012. On March 7th 2016 I had a hysterectomy out of concern that I might have ovarian cancer. It did not turn out that I had ovarian cancer. The cancer scare forced the hysterectomy I was trying to avoid, and so, I became fibroid free as of March 7th 2016. I will try to keep this blog up and running in the hope that it will be of some use to others going through what I went through.
