Nerves...

So, I went to the doctor again yesterday to get the sonogram (btw, a sonogram isn't that bad...I had the one where they went inside of you and was really nervous but it wasn't bad). They found four fibroids. One was apparently teensy, but one was apparently quite large. The big one was 8 cm in diameter. I literally have a small child in there. It's freaking me out a little bit. However, I don't have any of the symptoms people have them they bother you, besides having to pee all the time. So, apparently the doctor will call today or tomorrow (I love how doctors have no real priorities when it comes to patients) as he wasn't in the office at the time that this thing was done. The sonogram lady said that he would give me options. That makes me nervous...I'm just quite nervous about a lot of stuff surrounding this whole thing...I'm just going to wait on the call as I don't know what else to do. Reading on the internet is quite useless, as there are all sorts of suggestions, ideas, and avoidances.

In other news, Weight Watchers is coming to my school today. It's so exciting! We're starting the Weight Watchers at work program. I'm thrilled. I don't know how much easier it could be for me to lose weight. They're freaking bringing me a program that I have been successful with in the past. There are 18 of us doing it, so hopefully we'll have support and it will encourage us to stick with it. I also paid $204 upfront, so I feel like that's enough of a financial commitment to stick with it...

Today at school is an easy day. We have community service so my 7th graders aren't in class and my 6th graders are taking a test. I needed this today...I had a long night last night...

Hi Meghan,

You left a comment on my blog (Smaller Fun Pants) last week that I'm only just now able to respond to.

I'm 33 and have never had kids. My fibroid (I only had one) was bigger than yours but I think that yours is still a bit too big to remove without doing an open abdominal surgery. I googled "uterine fibroid" and found the wiki page and the WedMD page and they explained some different removal options.

I actually just had the surgery on Oct 28th via an open abdominal (traditional myomectomy) surgery and am currently recovering. My fibroid was causing bleeding for weeks and was pushing on my bladder and my cervix - making sex uncomfortable. It had impacted my life up until then enough that I decided to get it removed.

Also, since I want to have kids, getting this removed would be a logical and necessary step.

Your doctor hopefully has been able to give you the information that you need to make the decision on what to do. Some people never have them removed because they're not symptomatic.

Whatever you choose to do, I wish you the best of luck and know that I am here to answer questions that you might have - you can email me at happyfunpants@gmail.com

Best wishes! :) :)
