About to have a hysterectomy due to large fibroids. However, I am having pain in my belly button and gynocologist says it has nothing to do with the fibroids. Told it is not a hernia either. Have any of you experienced pain in the navel before hysterectomy?
The pain not be directly from the fibroid, but it is entirely possible that the fibroid is pushing on a nerve that goes to the navel. I believe there are many symptoms that can be caused (directly or indirectly) from large fibroids.
Thanks for your reply. I wrote this on behalf of my friend, Kiev. she said her fibroids are 10 X 8. she also has polyups. She is in her 60's and will have her uterus removed along with the fibroids and polyups. The Dr. will probably leave her ovaries and cervix. I thought at that age the Dr. would op to remove all.
