I'm in the hospital

I had a large fibroid taken out And a Hysterectomy. The recovery has been hard! I never want to be in a hospital ever again.

The important thing for you girls is if you have a fibroid make sure you doctor Is keeping a eye on it. This should of not gotten this big and surgery would of been alot easier.
I had a PA tell me she did not need to check me. That was about a year ago. I should of fought harder. So now I hope I can safe you from this pain.

  • wow, i am sorry to hear that but glad the surgery went well and hoping for a safe, quick recovery! i hate hospitals too, i start to feel stir-crazy after a day of being in that place!

    my mom had a hysterectomy back in 04 for the same reason. she had some kind of growth (cant remember now if it was a fibroid, cyst or tumor) in her uterus that had grown so big it attached itself to her bladder. for years & years she had awful periods, with clots the size of golfballs and migraines, yet she never checked it out! she didnt go to the GYN from the time i was born til 04, so roughly 17 years! if she had taken care of herself better she may have gotten away with just a d&c to remove it.

    ladies, your annual pap is very important! please take care of yourselves!
