Elizabeth was fighting a fibroid problem, without even knowing it.
As a professional figure skater performing up to 3 shows a day, Elizabeth was used to feeling exhausted. But the sensation of a near-heart attack on the ice told her something was really, really wrong. Diagnosed with severe anemia from fibroid-related blood loss, she was told by her doctor to have a hysterectomy.
Elizabeth was 30 years old.
“I remember getting in the car and sobbing the whole way home. I wanted kids. And even if I was someone who didn’t want children, I wanted to have that choice. It was like he was telling me I had no choice.”
Elizabeth did have a choice. A family member, who had been treated by Dr. McLucas at The Fibroid Treatment Collective, told her to make an appointment. Immediately.
“He literally saved my life and career. I called on a Tuesday. Saw him on Wednesday and had the procedure Thursday morning. That Sunday, I showed up for rehearsals with the Carribean Cruise Ice Show.”
And few years later, when Elizabeth was ready, she started a whole new career.
As a mom.
Congratulations Elizabeth, Cedric and Baby Jonathan.
All of us at the Fibroid Treatment Collective are thrilled to be part of your story.
