Have fibroids, causing pain, swollen uterus, swollen veins. Took codamol. Will this pain be there till menopause?
Hi I have a 22mm posterior fibroid giving me bad low back pain at night and a 16mm anterior fibroid giving me pain in day and night. I take 30/500 co codamol for pain relief. I also have smaller fibroids and a swollen uterus ans swollen veins. I m due to see consultant in 2 weeks. Will this horrible pain go away. I m 48 I can t wait til menopause for them to shrink its too far away Thank you
Hi, The pain in fibroids is either by pressure symptoms or degeneration in fibroids. Pain due to deganeration improves in a span of 4-5 weeks . This pain is persistant,located at a spcific spot, Goes on it's own.It gets relieved by routine pain relievants like Ibuprofen.Your pain in anterior fibroid is probably this type. Pain due to large sized fibroid pressing on nerves or muscles is at a specific position& trouble sum. With both types of pains & distant menopause, the treatments left for you seem to be-Hysterectomy or Uterine artery embolization. Please don't worry,with these you will be symptom & fibriod free. thanks.
Hi, Thank you for choosing Healthcaremagic. This pain is unlikely to be due to fibroids, unless it could be due to degeneration changes causing pain. You need to undergo further investigations to confirm the pain is due to fibroids. If the fibroid is the cause, I advise you to undergo Hysterectomy. I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow-ups. If you like my answers kindly rate it, and write a review as well.
