Thanks for your query,

Recurrence in Fibroids is very common, Its not a serious issue but for now if you have a completed family, hysterectomy would be a better choice to be considered for the treatment of the same.

The pain during bending could be due to stretching of the supportive ligaments ( fibrous bands) of the uterus due to the enlarging fibroids or also could be due to secondary changes in the fibroids like inflammation ,degeneration etc.

When coming to the growth near the fallopian tube , I would ask you to investigate it further more better with a CT / a MRI scan to know what it is and its extent because the diagnosis of a fibroid may not be missed by a USG ( Ultrasound )Scan.Since you had a surgery prior in the same site there could be a chance of malignancy developed during the healing process which has to be ruled out first before going for treating fibroids.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any follow up queries I will be available to answer them.
