My Fibroid Story

My Fibroid Story

I found out that I have Uterine Fibroids in October of 2018, but I am sure that I have had Fibroids (non-cancerous tumors that can be found on the Uterus) for a much long time. My Doctor told me that I had an 8 centimeter Fibroid and many smaller ones. I immediately asked for a solution and I got three: a Hysterectomy, a UFE or a Myomectomy. My Doctor said that the Myomectomy is the only option that preserves fertility, although you can have a baby after having a UFE. Of course a Hysterectomy is the most permanent option. She also suggested that I start taking Birth Control to help with the Bleeding.

I went home and resolve to give myself a year to decide on what I want to do, so I have spent 2019 doing research and trying more natural options like, eating a Plant-Based diet. I am proud to say that I am 90% Plant-Based at this time and I have felt some differences in my symptoms. For example, it looks like my nightly bloating days are over. I have also improved my energy levels and therefore my whole quality of life. The biggest difference is that I no longer have a pack on my back. Yes, I used to carry a backpack that had clothes and all kinds of supplies because I travel around the city for my job and you never know flooding will happen. My back is free!!!!
