Hi all,
I finally got some medical coverage in February, actually March, now I went in to be examined to find out what is going on with my "fibroids".  Looks to the Nurse Practioner that I have fibroids that have swollen my uterus to the size of a 26 wks pregnancy. I just went and had labwork done
and will have an ultrasound next Wednesday.  OK, so one interesting thing the nurse said was she noticed I have a thyroid history and that undertreated thyroid can contribute to fibroid growth.  I have read that a number of times.  It may have to do with poor metabolism of the excess estrogen situation.  

OK, so I haven't had surgery yet, although she said with a uterus at my size, it's what they recommend.  I feel happy at least, cause all my hiking and eating right has kept the rest of me
at a nice size, it's just the abdomen area.  I also am feeling like I might rush into this for the sake of vanity.  But I am wondering about the pros and cons of a hysterectomy at 54.  She said
since I am close to menopausal age, it may not be too bad, but a good thing.  I am slightly anxious about what side effects losing my organs will "really" have.   I still wish my thyroid wasn't irradiated before I knew about the btd.  

Also, I am taking some bladderwrack, and it has a noticeable effect on my energy  for the better.  Oh and one last thing, lentils are bennies on my swami, I thought they made me sleepy, well it  was the cheese that I put on top of them that did that I found out yesterday.
No cheese, no drowsiness.  Love my swami list.  

So I am trying to continue with compliance, just wondering about what supps I should focus on.
I just finished a small container of calcium d-glucarate, and I also have some DIM-plus.
Still take a liver herbal blend also.  I am trying to remain calm and not rush this thing, yet I may have had it for quite a while.  Also seeing the endocrinologist next month, but they did do that blood work today also.

Do they have to remove the whole uterus, or can they remove the fibroids and keep the uterus in place? It might be a more complex surgury (from the surgeon's perspective) but it's got to be better to keep your organs in place, even if you are about to enter menopause. IMO, our organs belong inside of us and they shouldn't be removed if it's at all possible. Even a "retired" uterus is still part of your body and probably continues to create hormones in small amounts that keep the postmenopausal body in balance.

try periodical liver cleanses......rerun swami click on thyroid and gender specifics, and ask for the most recommended sups.......with explanation
hepatiguard comes to mind a well as fucus

fixing your gut will help run things more smoothly......fix the gut, fix the thyroid.........yup, our second brain!

I think the ultrasound will give them a better idea of where the fibroids are, but it "feels" like they are in the wall of the uterus to me.  Laying on my back, I can feel the whole thing, yikes!  But yes, thanks both of you for responding, I will play around with my swami now.....

I got my blood work test results and they are interesting.  I am anemic, but I already suspected that one.  My vitamin D is normal, but what  bothered me the most was slightly elevated liver enzymes, (have a history of that) but pretty low cholesterol.  My total was 118, my hdl  was 47, which is also low.  That gives me a possible explanation of my dry skin, thumb skin cracks, etc......

Anyway, I guess I am going to order my explorer supps and aromastat was also recommended.  I have started on an iron supp, one from the health food store, not the "Slow-Fe" they suggested.  Mine has vit. C, B-12 and folic acid in it and I notice a difference quickly when taking it.  I have used it in the past.

Still having the ultrasound next Wednesday, and consult with MD in early May.  I wish I knew some other way to shrink fibroid growths.  I know that my program will work, but I think it will take some time.  Also, the Nurse Practioner said these probably will stay large after menopause, and how will I know if I let them remove fibroids/uterus?   Trying to remain calm....

If you have the surgery, would they also be removing your ovaries?  That would slam you into menopause all of a sudden instead of allowing the process to unfold.

I've mentioned before, I love Vitex for shrinking fibroids and cysts.  It's slow working but used consistently and in a generous amount, it has worked wonders for several folks I know.  And my own ovarian cysts are long gone.  Maybe I've talked with you about this before, so my apologies if I'm repeating myself!  



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

No worries, I did get some vitex, it's capsules of 400mg so I will add them into my program.  Thanks Victoria.  Yes, I was not hoping to not have to do a hysterectomy, really don't want one.  I'd rather do everything possible to shrink these.

Who knows, you might be able to shrink it to the point that you can co-exist with it for a long time.  Maybe it will shrink even more than that, given enough time.  It can take 3 to 4 months to start seeing a real difference.

At the very least, I hope you can postpone surgery until after you have a natural menopause.  Sorry for projecting my own hopes onto you!

No Victoria, I really appreciate it!  I'd like to have a natural menopause also.  I also decided to take
an oil blend 3,6,9 that has evening primrose in it.  I took some months back, and I think it helped with inflammation.  I've upped my fish intake to more than once a week, closer to my swami.  Going to order my explorer supps next.  Just wondering if I should try detoxical-d or aromastat which is suggested on swami.  Or hepatiguard......and the low cholesterol is probably related to my liver.....want to get that up.  I have a lot of work to do!   Will try to postpone any surgery for awhile.
Thanks!

system... but will  hear onto my belly feelings and thanx to Debra....I am able to find my own way to heal myselve....
