Uterine Fibroids

I came across a health news brief while reading Women's Health that's about fibroids. A few weeks ago I had a robotic hysterectomy. Grab a copy of the magazine, on news stands today. Pay extra attention to the first and last statements in this health news brief.

I have a history with uterine fibroids, and they were seriously symptomatic. I was anemic the first go round, had horrible periods, and a uterus filled with several large fibroids. I had a myomectomy seven years ago to remedy the situation. It brought me great relief. However, they returned last year, and I underwent treatment to shrink them and to prepare for the da Vinci robotic hysterectomy. I'll be sharing more about my experiences in upcoming blog posts. I must tell you now, this recovery has been considerably well and the relief from the fibroids having been removed couldn't bring me greater joy!

Don't ignore the signs. I'll be in touch and sharing more about women's health experiences as they relate to me, and maybe to you too.
