I'm 26, and have just been told following my Ultra sound that I have a 15cm Fibroid growing on my Womb. I noticed back in June 2017 that the bottom of my stomach was rock hard, but I just put this down to being due for a period. However, with each month that passed I noticed a large bump appearing and when I stood up, I looked a fair few months pregnant. I haven't had any children, however knew that it definitely wasn't a pregnancy. I have had severe pain and heavy bleeding during periods, severe lower back pain & am now struggling to bend over to tie shoe laces etc. I have been told that due to the size of my Fibroid, it has pushed my ovaries and bladder out of the way, therefore, my ovaries are now under just below my boobs and my bladder is on the side of the body. I have been told that I will be booked in for emergency surgery within the next 2 weeks because of the size of the Fibroid, so I wanted to know if anyone else has experienced this, has been through the surgery and how it was, what the recovery time was and how you felt afterwards? I have added a photo which shows the lump I have at the moment and would appreciate anyone's feedback that has experienced this and the surgery before.
