@kcaggiebiz:  ((HUGS)) So sorry to hear this. I have fibroids too as well as PCOS. I want a baby really bad but we aren’t married yet so are not trying yet. It makes me anxious and sad but I can’t really do much about it at this point.

I hate it when insensitive people remind you about your age. I’m 36.

Anyway I understand about being freaked out but you are doing the right thing. Hugs and kisses to you too! These female reproductive issues are no walk in the park.

@kcaggiebiz:  Oh boy! I can relate. I had an abdominal myomectomy in November 2010. (I was your age -33!) and had a dozen fibroids (four baseball and softball size) removed. My surgery was way more complex than yours will be since I had so many. I’m sure you’ll be just fine. 🙂  Any questions you may have, let me know. I also belong to a great fibroid forum that has message boards and there is great info there. It is called Fibroid Friends – check it out! Let me know any questions you have. I promise you’ll feel better after the surgery, once you get through the recovery! (((Hugs)))

I know. I feel bad for my FI what with all the conversations about hormones, cysts, fibroids, cycles. Once he was trying to read some info on the internet about my conditions and said, “oh my god! this is so incredibly complicated!” lol

@kcaggiebiz:  Sure, just let me know! My fibroids impacted my fertility in the first place, so that is how we found out I had them (miscarriage) and it took two years, but now I’m 27 1/2 weeks pregnant! 🙂

I haven’t had them, but wanted to wish you lots of luck! I have loads of cysts that we always need to keep an eye on. Hopefully removing the large fibroid (& checking for other sneaky ones) will result in a positive pregnancy soon. 🙂

@kcaggiebiz:  Did you have an MRI? That is how they found out I had so many. Originally, they thought I had three (from ultrasound where we found out I was going to miscarry), but then the pelvic MRI showed a dozen of them. I was shocked! As far as the recovery, I was in the hospital 2 days, came home and my DH took good care of me for the next few days. He had to bathe me in the shower, put my clothes on (couldn’t bend forward at all), pretty much do everything. By day 5 or 6, I could “somewhat” change on my own and take a shower if I moved very gingerly. The pain is the worst for about a week, then by after two weeks you will feel much, much better. I returned to work after 3 1/2 weeks (was planning on 4-6 weeks, but felt well enough to go back, although I have a desk job so I sit down a lot..wouldn’t suggest that otherwise!) By week 4, hardly any pain at all and by week 6 no pain at all. Your tummy will remain numb for many months but shouldn’t hurt too much. Although sneezing and coughing can hurt for quite a bit. be sure to have a pillow (they gave me one in the hospital) that you use to push again your tummy for support, while walking, getting up, sneezing, coughing, etc. And take the pain meds!!!! They were my lifesaver!!  Let me know what other questions you have. 🙂 When is your surgery?

@mimi123:  Thank you! We are thrilled. He truly is a miracle baby after so many surgeries and having to undergo the IVF route. 🙂 Can’t wait for him to be here already!!
