Thanks for the query.

Treatment of symptomatic fibroids depends on the age, parity of the patient, size, number of fibroids and severity of the symptoms.
As you are having large sized fibroids with symptoms like menorrhagea, dysmenorrhea etc, if you have completed your family, better to go for hysterectomy.
Take care.
