Had bloating, constipation, had colonoscopy, left leg periodically gone numb, calf pain. Cure?

for 15 years or more ive had bloating and constipation, had u/s 3 x colonoscopy 3 yrs ago and just mild early diverticular disease,my left leg has periodically gone numb when sitting for long periods for a long time on and off, this has got worse to the point where my knee tingles and my calf veins throb when sitting, so ive always had ibs-c .my last u/s 4 years ago showed a subserosal fibroid of 7.2 cm but this has presented years after u/s showing nothing. so my question is this is it likely in view of years of ibs-c and leg numbness, is the leg pain more likely to be due to the long term ibs-c or the subserosal fibroid? i really dont want to have a hysterectomy and still be in this pain? im 50 by the way

The pain radiating to the calf veins throbbing sensation can be due to the mass effect but the size of the fibroid should be mentioned . Long term IBS can be associated with other symptoms also. IBS often difficult to control. If you have got fibroid this should be operated . Consult a gynaecologist. To indentify the location of the pain some tests are necessary.Take care.
