Avatar f tn But I tried massaging the area where the fibroids are,warm bubble baths,and changed my eating habits which I did not want to do,beef makes fibroids worse junk food as well,whole wheat are the way to go,small healthy meals throughout the day,water,exercise as tolerated,and note that fibroids are actually driven by hormones so the fact that we are pregnant does not make it easier but it can be done I'm proof because I went from pain,to change,now I'm able to enjoy my pregnancy more.
Avatar f tn Can you have fibroids and not have heavy bleeding. I have pain in my left lower side. Had some spotting after no period for 18 months. Had a biopsy and blood work ca125. Ultrasound set for monday. My whole family has had fibroids. I also have some back pain that was brought on by a cough one morning like a big muscle spasm. Not sure if this is related or not. So worried that something could be wrong. I have no history of cancer but I know that doesn't mean anything.
Avatar n tn While I am waiting for my appointment I have been doing a lot of reading on the internet about these types of fibroids and their symptoms, but I am wondering if gas can be a symptom of fibroids. I have found nothing that references this, but, for the past few years I have been suffering from a lot of gas daily. I never used to get gas no matter what I ate. I eat right and exercise everyday. I have even tried changing my diet and nothing has relieved this problem.
Avatar f tn I never gained a single pound after my surgery and neither did my mother. As long as you keep a healthy diet and exercise after you should be fine. You will have to wait 6 weeks before you can start any kind of exercise program. Your Dr will give you the okay or not to start when you have your checkup.
Avatar f tn Although I still have fibroids, I am 6 months pregnant with my twin baby girls. The size and location of the fibroids could effect pregnancy; however, I have been blessed and they did not effect mine. Good luck and try to stay positive! It's really hard, and I can definitely relate! I am borderline anemic and have been for many years!
Avatar f tn I had just been to the doctor and did all sorts of testing and I am perfectly fine. Is there something natural I could take to regulate my period? And why are my cramps so bad now that I am losing weight?
188306 tn?1274136222 I have uterine fibroids and I'm sched.to have a myomectomy on 4/2. I have lived with uterine fibroids for almost 2yrs now. It was diagnosed when I was 6wks pregnant. It gave me a lot of pain then,but now I've had increased pain lately. I have also noticed that I been soooo constipated. I do drink a lot of water and I eat fruits and vegeatables + fiber. I'm not really nervous on having surgery. Maybe I'm just stressing on this TERRIBLE PAIN I'm having.
Avatar n tn But at any age there are great variations of the impact childbirth can have on you and at any age you can do a lot of damage reversal afterwards with exercise and proper nutrition. Never mind the C-section scar if it is a bikini cut. It blends in. The good thing is that after childbirth you will not have any time to stress about these things. Even if you feel unattractive for a while, your perception of yourself changes over time and you may re-invent your appearance.
Avatar n tn So, i think we just have to take it slow and not push ourselves too hard on the exercise. The muscle is sensitive and healing and will react when made to work harder than it feels able. I keep depression away by knowing that in a year it will be better if i am kind to my body. I have hashimotos and for the last year have been on thyroid meds. Well, it took about a year for my body to start looking better. So i just realize that change doesn't happen instantaneously.
1674269 tn?1304097287 I am a 59 year old menopausal woman with a mass. When lying down I can feel the outline, it feels as though it is the size of a canteloupe. Now my question is 2 weeks ago My GYN felt it and had me to return for a ultrasound. She stated she thought it was a ovarian mass and had me to take the ca125 test which showed no signs of cancer. The symptoms I am having is large abdomen, fullness, and empting my bladder often.
1282925 tn?1286415639 I don't plan on training for any marathons but sure would like to do exercise in the next 5 weeks. The doctor is off on vacation and I will not see him until Aug 20! Go figure. Yes, I know doc's need vacations too...
Avatar f tn I had invasive fibroid surgery in sept 2012 after surgery I have been experiencing left leg ache and ankle that fill as though they can crack. sometime the leg and ankles hurt to bad I can't place them on the bed or place the sheet or cover on top. sometime i can't hardly walk.
102999 tn?1326859384 How many are you getting when you exercise? Do they start as you get up to speed and then go away? It get them when I first start and then after I stop as my heart rate regulates itself. I think it has a bit to do with an unsteady beat/rate and when I am starting to pick up the pace or slow down the pace my heart rate can jump around a bit going slow and fast until it settles into a more steady pace. I think it is the fluctuations that are giving the extra beats a chance to jump in.
Avatar n tn Had minor hot flashes last year, when I started having these, treated with primrose oil suppliments and they went away. Weight gain over two years of 20 lbs, exercise, diet and habits all same. Exercise minimum 4 x's week. Had preganancy 2 years ago was unexpected and "tubular", this I am sure brought on all changes.
Avatar n tn To add more misery into it, I gained 6 pounds and can not get rid of them. Exercise even more and try to eat very good. My stomach has always been flat and muscular (ballet dancer), and now is like I swallowed a melon, flat to my waist and bloated from the belly bottom down. Yes, more irritable too. The PMS symptoms all month long for the past two; nightmare. Are this part of the menopause symptoms? Could be something else? Thank you. I am planning to go to the doctor.
1344197 tn?1392822771 Incidence rates of hysterectomy in the USA and in western European countries have remained relatively stable despite recent years introduction of minimally invasive treatment options, such as endometrial ablation, for conditions, such as heavy periods and fibroids. The majority of hysterectomies are preformed in women before menopause and the removal of ovaries after the age of 40 is common.
Avatar f tn The pain starts in my lower pelvic region, radiates to the lower right pelvic region, then around my hip and into the lower flank region, It feels like pregnancy contractions. The pains are sharp and intense and I feel like I need to push something out. Recently, the pain has been accompanied by vaginal bleeding. After doing a few situps, the pain started. I went to the restroom and noticed the bright red blood. I just finished my period four days ago so this is not ovulation spotting.
Avatar n tn This past year I've only had three periods (august, february, and june/july). I went to a dr. and was asking her what it could be, and she was really unhelpful but gave me a 2 week supply of hormone pills and told me to call her if I hadn't had a period in 3 weeks. I had one (in february), but then didn't have one until june or july and haven't had one sense. When I do get my period, its always REALLY painful, and i feel sick for 1-2 days before and then in the first couple of days.

Avatar n tn Heavy bleeding can be due to can be due to hormonal imbalance, fibroids and polyps (non cancerous growth) in the uterus, endometriosis (deposits of the inner lining of the uterus in the pelvic cavity) etc. You might have to go for a complete hormone profile and ultrasonography to know the cause of this .Get in touch with an Obstetrician and Gynecologist for further assistance.
Avatar f tn Hello, Brown spotting can be due to ovarian problems, hormonal imbalance, stress, anxiety, crashed dieting, use of birth control pills, change in environment, excessive exercise etc. Heavy bleeding can be due to can be due to hormonal imbalance, fibroids and polyps (non cancerous growth) in the uterus, endometriosis (deposits of the inner lining of the uterus in the pelvic cavity) etc. In your case, it can be due to hormonal imbalance and should get better in a few weeks.

Avatar f tn Further, with a diet modification, regular exercise and taking good care of yourself, you can minimize the damage caused by your condition. Good luck!
Avatar f tn If you are overweight and pregnant then you should be adjusting your diet so that you are eating healthy and do some light exercise like walking to improve your fitness and help prepare yourself when it's time to give birth when you'll need extra energy.
Avatar f tn In my opinion, this CDC physician did a below average job. No where does he mention that many fibro and CFS patients have fibroids, low vitamin D levels, osteopenia and abnormal hormone levels. I am embarrassed by this. And this is probably the reason why my CFS patients are still getting smiles from physicians and medical staff after we tell them our diagnosis. http://streaming.biocom.arizona.edu/event/?id=20487 And now there are other new problems with the CDC.
Avatar f tn But heavy periods in perimenopause are not as nearly as attributable to fibroids as some sources indicate - at least 50% of women get fibroids after 30-ish - and most are actually asymptomatic- (only certain types of fibroids actually bleed) and begin to shrink as menopause gets nearer. At least they do if you manage to avoid a hysterectomy, which IS the 2nd most performed surgery on women, only behind C-sections.
Avatar n tn This would take care of the uterine fibroids and the thought was that the decreased estrogen could possibly make my risk of breast cancer decreased. My question is if having my ovaries removed would reduce my risk of breast cancer and by what percentage? Also, what other problems would possibly be created by having a total hysterectomy at age 41 or 42? I heard that there would be an increased risk for heart disease, is that true?
Avatar n tn She was receptive to this and agreed to start me on 25mcg. Levothyroxine and retest in 6 weeks. In addition to the Levo, the exercise, and a healthy diet, I also started taking 30mg. Phentermine to help get this weight off. It's a prescription I had leftover from a couple of years ago. I started both meds 4 days ago. Questions: Do you believe that a TSH of 4.270 could explain my rapid weight gain of 25lbs in 3 months?

Avatar m tn I will see how things improve with my iron shot and daily proferrin tablets (3x per day) and if my iron doesn't rise enough look into a stool sample. If that doesn't tell the story, then I will get a colonoscopy. I am fairly certain my low iron is caused by my thyroid issue.
