Re: hysterctomy at 47yrs

When I was 45, I had 1 fibroid tumor (12.5cm). My doctor and I originally opted for a uterine fibroid embolization. It was considered successful because at 6 months the fibroid had shrunk to 9.something.

I don't know if it really helped, because I was diagnosed with cervical cancer during those 6 months and ended up with a total hyst anyway. My cancer wasn't on the outer cervix, so it was never detected during my annual paps; it was further up in the canal that can only be sampled by an ECC (endocervical curettage). I'm SO glad my doctor did the HPV/dna test and that the gyn did the ECC along with my colposcopy. My cancer was found at stage 1 and only required a hyst for treatment. I was released from my gyn/onc at my 1 year follow up appointment.

My only advice to you is to have your doctor do an HPV/dna test on you before you do anything less invasive than a hyst. If my doctor had done that, I could have avoided the UFE.

Re: hysterctomy at 47yrs

I had a hysterectomy at your age, 47, and also for fibroids. Mine was 19 cm. so I needed an abdominal hysterectomy. The procedure went just great and I feel wonderful now.
NO MORE PERIODS!!!
