In 2008 I was diagnosed with numerous uterine fibroids and an enlarged uterus. I was having serious symptoms which had crept up on me (the infamous "symptom creep"). My doctor offered me only a hysterectomy or injections of a drug (Lupron) with many known (negative) side effects. Through the information and on-line dialogue (Yahoo list serve) which this organization provides, I learned about several other options and eventually chose one (embolization) which was more appropriate for me. I continue to follow the dialogue to keep up with information on fibroids and their treatment.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my struggle to find alternatives to hysterectomy as a treatment for uterine fibroids.
