Fibroids Testimonial: Endometriosis?

My doctor visits the next day at noon after the surgery; it is then I learned the true seriousness of what

occurred. My womb had many surprises. It seems not only were my veins playing hide and seek, but my womb too. Not to mention it was ‘cemented’ into place by endometriosis.

Say what now!!

Endometriosis? I came to St. Josephs Hospital to take out uterine fibroids, and I had endometriosis?

Oy vey!!!

It seems I had ‘chocolate’ ovarian cysts and more fibroids than the ultrasound presented and the endometriosis formed a fortress around everything like the Krak des Chevaliers in Syria!

Dr. Chand further explains that there were lots of fibroids and the endometriosis caused the womb to prove difficult to move or cut through to reach these tumors. I guess heaven wasn’t ready for me though, because I pulled through.

From my research, I learned that cutting away a fibroid can cause bleeding which can prove impossible to stop. If I had a plethora of cysts and fibroids to cut away, you can imagine the loss of blood occurring during the operation procedure.

Sigh!
