Mar 30, 2012 · Uterine Fibroids in Women's Health

Thanks for sharing your experiences. I’m at a slightly different point in my life — 50, so the pregnancy issue is not one for me at all. I see my dr. again soon and will discuss with him the possible actions. I really can’t imagine having this problem throughout your life — mine just started a couple of years ago. I’m glad you were able to resolve the problem.

Mar 22, 2012 · Uterine Fibroids in Women's Health

Hi. Thanks for sharing. I am considering endometrial ablation to deal with uterine fibroids and heavy, painful periods. I did some research and discovered that there are several different types of this procedure (filling the uterus with hot fluid to destroy lining, using a device that freezes and destroys the lining and also some kind of radio freqency approach). Do you recall which type your doctor used? I’m trying to get a sense of what to expect. I would like to avoid hormonal treatment because it does terrible things to my mood, distrupts my sleeping and makes me gain weight. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Mar 20, 2012 · just found out I have uterine fibroids in Just Want to Talk

I was just diagnosed with uterine fibroids. I see a gynecologist on Thursday (2/22/2012). I’ve done some Internet research, but I’d really like some practical advice from women who have been through this. I’ve been bleeding with bad cramps for almost two months. Provera helped with the bleeding for a couple weeks, but when I stopped taking it, the bleeding started again. Provera has made me irritable and moody, upset my stomach and made sleeping difficult. This concerns me in regards to any possible future hormonal treatment for this problem. Can anyone help me with some advice and also some idea of what I should expect? Thanks.

Mar 20, 2012 · electrolyte problems in Just Want to Talk

I have a chronic problem in which my body has trouble retaining sodium due to a hormonal issue in my kidneys. I am taking fludrocortisone (a steroid), and I’m also on a fluid restriction of 1400 ml or less each day. The fluid restriction is really tough, especially when it is hot. Not only am I always thirsty, but I am also prone to dehydration. Therefore, I cannot exercise or participate in outdoor activities (biking, swimming, even walking or spending too much time in the sun) during summer. Does anyone have any information about alternative treatments, or anything else that can help me cope?
