Hi candance and lillian I have fibroids as well. I recently had a robotic myomectomy on June 7 to remoe my fibroids. My doctor successfully removed 3 of them and left 1 becasue it was by my fallopian tube and he knew I was trying to steer clear of having a hysterectomy bc I want to have children in the future. But after the surgery my doctor came to me and stated that I had a condition called adenomyosis and that can make my menstrual cycles very painful. I thought after the surgery that was pain was goin g to be all over bc I was thinking it was the fibroids that was causing it but it was both the conditoon plus the fibroids. so you should ask your doctor about endometrosis and adenomyosis. And I also have heard there is pills that you can take to shrink fibroids. but yes after stop taking them they will came back…..

Hi msaboyd23! Thank you so much for the additional information. Being at the age of 55, I will not be having any children….so it seems like the conclusion from all the advice and further information I have received from you and many others……it would not do any good to take anything that would make them shrink due to the fibroids growing back…..so as far as I know I don’t have adenomyosis due to my fallopian tubes and ovaries are normal…….But I will check on the endometrosis for sure…..this Mayo clinic blog has helped me out so much!! I thank you all from my heart!!!
