Brief Answer:
Dont worry

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

1) Posterior low lying placenta will slow move up as you are only 18 weeks pregnant. Dont worry about it.

2) The pain you have may be unrelated to fibroid. Many women experience pain due to enlarging uterus and is not XXXXXXX if it is mild. Pain could also be due to urinary tract infection.

3) Dont take palitex unless pain is more.

4) I doubt about size of fibroid as it is unlikely to be that large. I suggest you see another expert in field of fertility who can repeat the scan and decide on fibroid.

5) Otherwise generally fibroids dont harm pregnancy. Operating them at this stage is harmful to pregnancy.

6) Since you are in Raipur you can visit Dr. XXXXXXX ( Mobile: 0000) and quote my reference. She is an expert in performing such scans and examine you before giving you accurate advice as you need specialized care.

I hope I answered your query.

Brief Answer:
No

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Having sonograph again wont affect. But it is important to diagnose the fibroid size accurately by an expert. I doubt that report of ultrasound you have sent might be wrong.

Fibroid wont affect during delivery as many people with fibroid deliver normally.

I am not sure about location of her clinic. Her number is reachable. I just called. Please call her after sometime.

Brief Answer:
please see different doctor soon

Detailed Answer:
Hi, if pain is so severe, you can take the medicine today after dinner. It is better instead of ice pack. Please visit a different hospital for scan and accurate diagnosis of fibroid. If pain is so much, it may be leading to complications like red degeneration. It needs to be operated. Please see doctor as soon as possible. Regards
