I just joined this group. I was diagnosed with multiple uterine fibroid tumors. Whether that means I have two or twenty, nobody would tell me. All they wanted to do was to do a total hysterectomy and then they would treat me with hormones for the rest of my life. I couldn't get my head wrapped around the fact that my organs didn't have any issues so why take them out. I did understand that when a women goes through menopause and her estrogen levels change, that the fibroid(s) shrink away. So, my logic is to treat me with hormones now with my organs intact. That thinking was not in sync with my doctors. Now that I am 50 years old and peri menopausal and have no health insurance, I decided to wait it out with diet and exercise and let nature take it's course.

Hi there,
I'm sorry to say this group doesn't get a lot of activity. I'm here, though! Tentatively scheduled for surgery on Dec 20th. (I have to take 4 months of Lupron shots first.)

Had quite a lot of pain yesterday with my fibroid (I have a really big one) when I tried to do core exercises. The cramping was so bad I almost got sick. It's tough to explain that to your male trainer...
