Hi Everyone:

I'm new here and just got the devastating news from my OB/GYN that I have fibroid tumors (two of them at 3cm and 4cm) and that my uterus is LARGE. He doesn't know specifically what kind they are yet but I have gleaned from the internet that they are intramural tumors...what seem to be the worst case scenario.

ANy opinions/experiences on these things?

I am post-menopausal but take hormone replacement. My thought is thus: I do not NEED to take Lupron shots to try to decrease my fibroids as I can simply stop taking my estrogen and will create almost NO estrogen on my own (I know this from experience and lab work).

I don't know if all my information is correct and would really appreciate any help anyone can throw at me.

I'm depressed by the myomectomy option (being a nurse, I'm aware of the severe side effects that alone can create before and during a pregnancy).

Thank you all.

Jeannie T

Well,me too,got fibroids,one big one in the uterine walla nd my RE didnt think it was a big deal so we proceeded witht the FEt with donate embies from our clinic and at 8 weeks I misscaried,it was a blighted ovum,needless to say how devastated we were and were left broke as well...

Now,I`m nto sure what to do,I`m 47 and so want a baby,we got married 7 years ago and were trying since...

So now really not sure what to do and how to resolve this problem,one thing is sure is that I do suffer terribly especially on the lower side of my back...
