I keep hearing I am approaching menopause and I should wait to have my uterus removed due to 3 large fibroids. In the meantime, I bleed so heavily it weakens me so badly I cannot go to work for 3 days. I know menopause is starting with me, but it could be another 3 years until it is over and in the meantime can I keep bleeding to death every month to the point I am told I need to go to the hospital. Should I get my uterus removed? I am scared but I cannot stand to feel this sick all the time from the bleeding.
Get your uterus removed. I wish I had done that, when my doc advised it at age 35, but i was scared., I went on the pill to control the bleeding but it was still bad. Fibroids are nasty, I am now 53, off the pill, but when i look back, i wish now that I had gone with my docs advice. Dont be scared, the heavy bleeding is worse than having your uterus surgically removed!
