I have been doing much better with my HA until the worst hit me. I have fibroids and they have gotten really huge. I was bleeding really bad but that has been resolved due to BC pills. Now my doc says I need to do something and I agree but the options are all surgical. I told them I didn't want a hysterectomy and they said ok they could do a myomectomy (just remove the fibroids) using the da vinci robot. This is good because it is outpatient and quicker recovery. I have to do an MRI this Thursday to confirm this plan and I have a consult with a radiologist who does an alternative treatment called Uterine Artery Embolization but I am not sure that will work and it is sounds pretty painful.
This is just too much for someone with HA, I am scared of general anesthesia and I just can't believe I have to do all of this.
How do those of us with HA cope with actual medical issues...any advice?
