Good afternoon fellow phobics!
I have been going through some legit health issues this year. Late last year they found a fibroid in my uterus that was 1.1 cm. So really small. I had some very bad abdominal pain in January and went to the ER where they did another transvaginal and found that the little darlinig had grown to about 3 cm. I went to the gyno, who was ready to do exploratory surgery then to see what was going on. But I was going through tests for my liver disease so she said they could wait 3 months and test again.
So tomorrow I am going back for another U/S. I am uptight because of following: 1: I don't want to have surgery. If it has grown larger, faster, they will want to do surgery. 2: If it is growing faster, the chances of it being cancer are higher. (Yes I know even the faster growing ones are usually 99% benign) 3: I have an autoimmune liver disease and I may need a liver transplant some day, so if I have cancer, there goes my chance at a liver. Plus if I don't have cancer but have to get surgery, I will need pain killers, which will irritate my already inflamed liver. I have come to terms with my liver disease, but this is just another thing that is throwing me for a loop. I still have to go to a rheumotologist in June to see if I have another disease like Lupus or something.
Just feeling overwhelmed and my HA (though these are legit concerns) is starting to flare.
