Since the last time, I have been taking vitamins and I tried my best to stay away from too much of greasy food. Also, I found a Hospital in Montreal, Royal Victoria Hospital, I went through the emergency because they would not take an appointment for me at their clinic EVEN WITH a doctor’s paper!!
I had to do as if I was in soooo muuuccch pain that I needed to see the doctor and it worked. I wish that I didn’t had to, but my stomach is still big and it is hard sometimes morally, and I can’t stay like this. Since May that I have found out that I have fibroid and nobody is really treating me (talk about free healthcare in Canada. If you are not on your death bed, they will put you on a waiting list). If I could afford it, I would go private seriously.
But the doctor saw me and did a quick sonograms test and saw that it was big so they said that he will refer me the next day to the gynaecology clinic for full sonograms test and they will be able to take care of me (which is funny because the same day earlier, at the clinic they wouldn’t take me for appointment saying they were overbooked for a few months)…
I was able to see the doctor AND the physician, plus 2 interns (I guess my case was really special), they not only found Fibroids, but also dermoids and Endometriosis that leads to have cysts that I have in one of my ovaries. Not too sure what it meant, I ask them and they said that my cysts are benign so far (no cancer.. ouuuf), one is 3 cm long and that’s what’s causes me to have very heavy periods and if I would try to have kids I would probably fail or have complications. They also told me that a lot of females thinks that it is normal, but it is not, to have very heavy menstrual periods, excess bloating and excruciating pain.
I done a little reading on my own and found out that it might be cause of lots of stress (stress is what starts all types of cancers). I did have a lot of stress before, everybody does, but I would take news, changes, lack of money, anything, by stress, I would not eat of not take care of myself. You know the saying “An apple a day keeps the doctor away!!?” that is true, when u eat healthy, your body will take stress more easily, now I’m not saying that it is the same for everybody, I am no doctor or physician or anything like that. I am a female that is going through some changes and speaks about HER experiences.
I do have a follow up with Royal Victoria Hospital next month, they have to study my case with a team of gynecologist and will give me the final diagnostic and my options. They also gave me a copy by writing of the results THE SAME DAY!! (the other hospital I went before sent me the result 2 months later!!). I would write everything in details, but that is relevant only to me. But As you already know, I do have 10 fibroid, where 4 are big (the urgent one is the 10 cm, grapefruit size), and now I found out that I also have a different cyst in each ovaries. Which makes my periods very painful, mostly now than ever before. Hopefully on my next visit, I will have good news, I would like to have the options to have kids. But if adoption is what I need to do, then I think I will have to deal with.. Only God knows the answer for me. But I can’t remain stress. I really need to refocus and only surround myself with positive people. Some will hate me for doing so but I can’t save anyone or take the stress off of anyone who can’t help themselves first!!
