Happy Holidays and Best wishes for a fibroid free 2017

Posing in front of my Christmas tree December 11, 2016 - Happy to be fibroid free (as of March 7th 2016) and wishing the same for all of you in 2017

Just a quick note to wish you all a joyous and happy holiday season. As you know, I have been fibroid free since March 7th 2016. I did not become fibroid free by shrinking my fibroids naturally. I became fibroid free as a result of undergoing a hysterectomy.

While it would have been nice to have been able to achieve my goal of shrinking my fibroids naturally, it became necessary for me to risk the surgery I had been trying so hard to avoid. So although I did not succeed in shrinking my fibroids naturally, my ultimate goal to become fibroid free has been achieved.

It is not my place to tell any of you what to do. Everyone’s situation is different and you have to make the choice that is right for you. I resisted the idea of surgery for a long time although the doctors felt it was critical that I get the procedure done, given the size of my fibroids. I was able to live with very large fibroids for many years; but for all the years of living with the fibroids, I was uncomfortable and unhappy. I am glad to be free from the discomfort and the unhappiness of having such large fibroids as I had. Yes, now I am dealing with being in menopause as a result of having my ovaries removed. And yes, waking up in the middle of the night drenched in sweat, having zero sex drive, getting unbearably hot countless times throughout the day, these things are NOT pleasant. But they are nothing compared to what I was dealing with before the surgery.

I’m happy to no longer have to deal with fibroids, and I wish for all of you that one way or another, whether by successfully shrinking them via natural means or by removing them via surgery, that you will find yourself fibroid free in 2017.

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.
