Thank you all for your kind words!
I have three fibroid cysts, a "large" one on my right ovary. The only real cure, if it can be called a cure, is a hysterectomy. My doctor tells me that all we can do now is wait and see how I progress since I am opposed to surgery and hormones. She doesn't recommend hormones, since, these types of cysts get larger with estrogen. I am doing some reading on this.
I also had a biopsy of my uterine lining, which, HURT!!!!!!!!! The doc told me it would hurt like labor pains and/or the worse cramps I've ever had. I don't think I believed her at first, I do now.
My blood work is showing normal hormone levels.
The doc will call me in a week with the results of the biopsy.
Dr. said I need to keep taking the iron tablets and eating red meat. She said that if the heavy bleeding affects my quality of life, we will have to look at medication and/or surgery. She is letting me decide what I want, and has made it very clear that I can call at any time if things get worse.
The ladies at the office are really nice. One gal laughs kinda goofy, but she stayed with me to make sure I was ok after the biopsy.
I am not sure I am going to work tomorrow.
I feel really blessed!
