I have had several surgeries for fibroids and the pains are unforgettable. Your body also changes after surgery. I ended up having a partial hysterectomy because my tumors were recurring. Recently I started having pains very similar to those you described in your piece. I thought I too may have sciatica, but since I’ve had a history of fibroids I may need to get a new screening. Thanks for your words of wisdom. I love it when women share meaningful nuggets of wisdom.
