I am trying to read as much as I can as fast as I can. I have large multiple fibroids, which were finally discovered a few weeks ago, and I am scheduled for surgery on Monday. I'm scared. Have your fibroids gone away? Did the BSM work? Should I call an herbalist?

So sorry to hear that.
Yes surgery is scary, although many people have told me that it worked for them. Key thing is to make sure they don't do a hysterectomy without your consent.
Unfortunately my fibroids are still here, primarily because I've also been working on fertility stuff and while I've been trying to shrink the fibroids the ivf drugs kept them from shrinking. So I'm not necessarily the best test case.
I suggest you think carefully about why you are getting the fibroids out. I personally discovered that herbs & BSM have been great for getting rid of many of the symptoms -- am now just left with a bulgy stomach and somewhat heavy periods. If symptom reduction is sufficient for you, you may be able to avoid surgery. Once fibroids are large, it's hard to shrink them and it will take a lot of time and effort to do so, but herbs and BSM can reduce symptoms quite quickly.
Wishing you good luck!

Good day!

Have you heard about HIFU(high intensity focused ultra sound)

Some websites say this treatment does not do any harm for future pregnancy (even though it is in the early stage of this technology)

Your view/ opinion please

Good luck,

Hi Anuja,
Yes, have heard about it. Indeed sounds like a promising new treatment, although I have heard some negative things about it too, e.g. people getting burned by it. I think there was some info about it on the HERS Foundation website.
I'm not going to do surgery, but if I were I think I would be more likely to do myomectomy.
