It has been a while since I’ve posted my thoughts. Everything is going great family and career wise.
My health is now in the spotlight. Recent tests showed no traces of diabetes or other hereditary diseases.
But my visit to the doctor 3 weeks ago for a wellness check was extremely uncomfortable which led to a transvaginal sonogram yesterday. That sonogram revealed I have 3 fibroids on my uterus.
Needless to say, I was in complete shock. I was assured they were not cancerous but they need attention.
My next visit is in 3 weeks. They will insert a fluid inside the fibroids to find out if polyps are taking over. If so, I’ll have surgery to remove them.
I feel like this could have been prevented and caught ahead of time. Prior to the diagnosis I had the symptoms of fatigue, protruding stomach, heavy menstrual cycles, and weight gain. I’ve battled perplexed and painful cycles since the age of 15 so I always thought it was just part of mother nature. I recently decided to go on the pill which has helped tremendously to ease my symptoms.
Ignoring my body has led to this point. While I’m still in disbelief, I’m happy to know what has been the root of my pain over the years. Hopefully the doctor does not find polyps. I’ll still plan to have the fibroids removed though. Thanks for reading.
