Theses days I feel so much better than a few months ago. Ever since I started eating more healthy(organic food as much as possible), more vegetables, reduce my alcohol, eating less meat and mostly more Vitamins.
I still have the grapefruit size fibroids, but it feels less hard when I press on it: every morning and throuhout the day I press lightly my stomach to see the level of my grapefruit sized fibroid. I feel it but from time to time I feel it moving, so I rub it to put it back in its place, on the left side. I still sleep on my stomach but mostly on the side.
I do lots of walking, and I run 10 minutes maximum, because after I feel a pressure under my stomach. But running helps a lot with getting in shape. I run 3 times a week for 10 minutes, then I walk for 30 minutes. I don’t do any crunches for the moment, cause my fibroid is abdominal, but breathing and stretching helps a lot. With this view (image below) you have to enjoy and be grateful of every minute.
But like I said before, what is really helping me right now is eating less meat and take vitamins. At first I was taking multivitamins, but I found out after reading different blogs and websites that it is better to take different vitamins supplement. Here are the one that works for me so far, I am not a doctor or physician, I am only a person who is doing what she can while she find a solution for my fibroid issue. I’ve read different articles and blogs and view youtube video and did my own chart of what can I try for myself to make me feel better.
If you are pregnant, nursing or taking other medications, it is recommended to consult a physician first. And again, you don’t necessarily have to buy exactly the same types of vitamins that I bought, theses are the one that I chose and that is working for me so far.
NATURE MADE B-Complex with Vitamins C
I take it once daily, it helps convert the food into energy;
I take it once daily. It says it is good for water balance, nerve transmission and muscle activity;
DUANE READE Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc
I take it 1 to 3 times daily. Good for Bone health and Immune System.
Since May I have started taking them and doing it slowly. I have went to see my gynecologyst that was referred to me by the hospital, the waiting list is about a year, and he said I should have hysterectomy and that anyway, it happens to all black female!! I was soo much in shock that I have been looking for another doctor, a few days later my friend referred me to her uncle who is a doctor, he just press on my stomach and was advising me NOT to wait a year because it is okay but it can get worse and if I would like to have children than that I shouldn’t wait that long. He also said that that there is only one hospital where I come from in Montreal that deals with other alternative than hysterectomy, he said that in that hospital in perticular, they have the technology to make the fibroid melt, when it is not too dangerous. He said he will take the appointment for me with the hospital and call me back. I am still waiting because it is summertime and everybody is on vacation right now.
I stay confident though that everything will be fine. I don’t want to panic anymore, I practice lots of positive thinking and it really helps. Also, I am not on a diet, what I do is good for my health, some people are telling me that I am becoming difficult with food, but in the end, it is about keeping good health for my future. I got a taste of vegetarian sushi and may I say I am addicted to it, I just love eating it. Vegetables are good for me and I can do different types of recipes with it.
This is what I have done for myself so far and so far, so good, I don’t complain and I feel good. Feel free to let me know what you have done for yourself as well. This fight is not over, and I am not letting that getting in the way of my music career path!!!
