First of all, you need to separate your weight loss goals from your fibroid issues - one has nothing to do with the other. The reason why some women can look 6 months pregnant, is because the fibroid itself is growing, not because they are gaining weight. The reason why your weight loss is slowing down is probably because after losing 3 stones, you are approaching your ideal weight (and congratulations on that!).
My advice to you would be the following:
1. Do your research on fibroids to understand what they are and how they can affect you. It sounds to me like your fibroids are inside your uterus, hence the heavy bleeding. Explore the various procedures that ddoctors use to remove fibroids, especially if you want to maintain your fertility.
2. If a doctor tell you that you need to have a hysterectomy, find another doctor. That should be a last resort. There are many other treatments out there!
Just to give you added comfort, I have had 2 fibroids on the back of my uterus for over 5 years. During that time, I managed to lose over a stone and went to the gym consistently. Due to the location of my fibroids, I had a slight paunch, but at no point did I look pregnant. However, this was due to the location of my particular fibroids - every woman is different. I say this just to reassure you that there is no link between the fibroids and weight gain. I recently had my fibroids removed via laparoscopic myomectomy because of the pain caused during exercise. I used Adrian Lower and I would highly recommend him. He is an excellent surgeon with a wonderful bedside manner.
Good luck with your appointment. Knowledge is power, so do your research so you can ask your doctor the right questions and understand your options. All the best! _ 0 votes
