Beating Fibroids

I am not a Doctor, so ask your Doctor before doing anything!!

My Fibroid Story

I Had my Surgery on July 9th 2020

Surgery is done and I am feeling sooooooo good!!! It was the best decision I have ever made in my life.  Below are the answers to some of the questions I have gotten so far.

What surgery did you do?
I did a partial Laparoscopic Hysterectomy.

Did you spend time in the Hospital?
Yes, I spent one night at the Hospital.

How long did you have to take off work?
I took off 8 weeks. My Doctor had recommended 4 to 8 weeks.  

How did you pay for it?
I have health insurance with my work and I also have short term disability.

My surgery was rescheduled for July 9th 2020

My surgery for March 16th was canceled. #COVIDfears 


It is get back to managing my symptoms and waiting until this whole thing is over. 

Hang in there Ladies, keep managing until you can safely get to the Hospital.

If you are struggling and you don’t feel like you are in control of your life, message me. I will be more than willing to help you find some control.
Sometimes having Fibroids can take over our lives and cause us to feel out of control, in pain and alone. 

Reach out to someone and start feeling in command of your situation. Reach out to anyone you trust, anyone who can help you.

I have found that eating healthy does a lot to relieve bloating and constipation (I am trying to avoid pharmaceuticals when I can) which are two of the symptoms I experience with my Fibroids. I have been 90% Plant-based for almost a year now and I can tell the difference in my overall body and mood.

I have the proof (from an ultrasound) that my new lifestyle did nothing to shrink my Fibroids, but it has helped in all other aspects of my overall well being.

Talk to your Doctor before making any changes.
