Having issues with your fibroids and looking for an alternative procedure to traditional fibroids surgeries ? Read on to find out how Embolization may be the answer you’re looking for!
My mother is of 46 years old. We recently came to find out that her uterus is mildly bulky with fibroids. Does she need surgery?
Based on the bit of information that you provided, there is no real need to get surgery. If the fibroids are bothersome for your mother or she is experiencing fibroid-related symptoms, then it may be a good idea for her to check out her options for fibroid treatment. Some of these symptoms include:
- Very heavy, excessive menstrual bleeding and prolonged monthly periods, sometimes with clots
- Frequent occurrence of soiling events due to abnormal uterine bleeding
- Pelvic pain or pressure
- Pressure on the bladder which leads to a constant need to urinate
- Pain in the back of the legs
- Pain during sexual intercourse
- Pressure on the bowel which can lead to constipation and/or bloating
- An enlarged abdomen which may be mistaken for weight gain or pregnancy
