This is my YouTube debut, lol. Check me out as I share a little bit about when and how I was diagnosed with a uterine fibroid tumor. After keeping an eye on it for a couple years, my doctor told me it finally needed to come out because it was pressing on my kidney and causing hydronephrosis. She gave me a few treatment options and I decided on a laproscopic myomectomy.
In the video you’ll see/hear about:
- Tests my doctor ordered to diagnose my the condition
- Treatment options
- Wait and see for 6 months
- Depo Lupron injections
- Abdominal myomectomy
- Laproscopic myomectomy
- Footage from the day of surgery
- How I’m doing after surgery
Here’s my story:
Do you suffer from fibroids? Have you had a procedure done? Please share you story and/or ask questions.

About my surgery:
Fibroid treatment options:
I had fibroid surgery about 8 years ago. It wasn’t a laproscopic surgery because I was in Mississippi and my doctor wasn’t experienced in it.
I saw immediate relief and was able to get pregnant in 2009.
It required me to have c-section since I’d already had abdominal surgery.
During the c-section my OB noticed I had a few fibroids that grew back.
My periods aren’t as heavy as they used to be. Hopefully, I won’t need another surgery.
I didn’t watch your entire video. But I wanted to reassure you that if you want to have children, it’s definitely possible after you have fibroid surgery.
All the best!
Thanks Joyce for sharing your experience.
I do not have fibroids, but know so many women who have dealt with them. Thanks for sharing your story.
Fibroids are becoming more common and especially among African American women. Thanks for sharing you story.
