..if momma ain't happy...

Sure wish this "lady's room" really was ladies only, but here goes....
I played the "take a new pill" game for over 3 years with 2 different doctors. The break-through bleeding eventually became constant. Finally found a doctor whose first suggestion after hearing my history and performing exam was "let's get that out of there".
Had surgery late fall 2008. Once the incision healed, the relief was amazing. Doc said fibroid-filled uterus was the size of a 5-6 month pregnancy, and the worst mess he'd ever seen. Sure wished I'd been given a surgery option earlier.
The type of fibroids I had was genetic, Grandma, Mom, 2 sisters and I all have/had them.
Hope all this info helps someone else weighting their options.
