After having a transvaginal & abdominal exam, i was told that i could have a Uterine Polyp. Are Uterine Polyps and Uterine Fibroids ever mistaken with eachother ? I've read up on all of the symptoms for both and want to know if weight gain could be one of the symptoms also that's just not mentioned as frequently as the rest. I saw that with the Uterine Fibroids it develops within the muscle tissue and make the abdomen appear thick or as if you are pregnant.
Also, in 2005 i had my tubes tied and have since then had irregular periods, heavy bleeding, weight gain, migranes, pain in my legs etc. When i go in for my surgery to have it removed, is that at which point that they will determine which it is ? I know that the Polyp gets sent somewhere to detect if its Cancerous etc. But how are Uterine Fibroids treated ? I know i just asked a million and 1 questions, but please share your answers to either of them. Thank you !!
