Fibroids and haemorrhaging

(1 Post)

First of all I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to post this, but I'm at a loss as to where would be best..

I was diagnosed with large fibroids 3 years ago after a huge haemorrhage while I was out in public - a&e trip, admission, the works.. now every month I find I can't move from bed or the bathroom for nearly a week due to 'niagara falls' falling out of my nether regions! Thankfully my work are very understanding due to my 'decoration' of the carpet last time I tried to work through it hmm

I've had various investigations including a failed myomectomy (sp?) where I bled too much for them to continue the cutting, and now my only choice is a (very risky) pregnancy or a hysterectomy.

I'm so fed up, and tired, and dizzy, and wanting to cry at the unfairness of it all.. I can't find any support groups out there for fibroids in my Google searches, and I can't help but think if this happened to men I would have more choice than 'cut up or shut up'..

Does anyone else have any experience of this or know of any support out there?
