Are You Afraid of Having Fibroids Removed?
The pressure that you feel physically and mentally behind the unknown. Will it work for me? Will this eliminate my problem forever? Will I be able to conceive? What will tomorrow hold?
The truth is, even surgery as the ‘magic answer’ can be a bigger risk than the diagnosis.
Even when you choose to say yes to a myomectomy because you believe it is the best option you have; there is still a level of uncertainty and pressure in the midst of the storm you are experiencing. You suffer, you seek help, and your ultimate goal is to nip it all in the bud once and for all.
You want to get back to living the life you deserve; but you are afraid, rightfully so. You are afraid of surgery. It doesn’t matter how many successful surgeries you’ve read about or how many times the doctor insists that your case is ‘easy.’ You want nothing to do with going under the knife and the potential post-procedure problems that may follow. As a result, you wonder, “What else can I do about my fibroid pain?”
Being afraid of fibroid surgery is common for women suffering from fibroid pain, especially when they feel like they’re being pushed into a corner with limited resources and options. The truth is, there are moments when you can feel like they are shoving the idea of surgery down your throat. It can be mentally taxing on a woman coping with her diagnosis. It’s important to realize that while procedures like hysterectomy and myomectomy are the right option for some women, that’s not the case for every patient.
If you are having similar feelings to the above scenario, you’re not alone. Researchers estimate 70 percent of all women develop fibroids between 35 and 54, and when we look at Black women, that number rises up to 90%. However, fibroids can occur in women younger than 35 and until menopause.
Historically, the medical community’s answer to fibroids has been fibroid removal through bloody and complex surgeries such as hysterectomy and myomectomy. In fact, in the United States 600,000 hysterectomies and approximately 30,000 myomectomy surgeries are performed annually.
But not everyone wants or needs to have fibroid surgery. For some women, the mere thought of surgery paralyzes them with uncontrollable fear and anxiety. As a result, they put fibroid treatment off for years allowing the condition time to possibly worsen – as it does in many cases.
Studies show that women delay seeking fibroid treatment for an average of 3.6 years, with nearly a third waiting more than 5 years. Most of this was due to fear and lack of knowledge about fibroid treatment options.
After doing a deeper dive into the stories of many women and statistics that involve them we’ve learned that most ranged from fears over not being able to get pregnant or having a difficult delivery, while older patients were more concerned with general health and significant blood loss.
This is a reminder that you are not alone.
So what is needed to ward off the fear of surgery? Simply put, support. Resources are needed, better options are needed, and a village of professionals who see you and understand you is most importantly needed.
It all starts with having the right team of physicians and coaches in your corner—experts are open to back-and-forth dialogue, answering every question or concern, setting expectations along the way, and honoring your wishes. This is one significant way to help you feel more in control and have less fear of fibroid treatment.
