Sounds very familiar on top of all the other issues I have had. Hard to feel strong when bleeding all the time, nothing causing mine but my body. One of these days I am sure it will stop and that will be the end of it. It is very frustrating but know you are not alone, I am glad there is something to your problems cause there is nothing to mine except a bad case of meopause.

Hi,

I am so sorry about your pain. You might want to ask your gyn/oncologist about LUPRON. Some oncologists are using LUPRON as a part of breast cancer protocals. The side benefit is that LUPRON will shrink fibroids. It puts you in complete chemical menopause, but it might help you to avoid surgery.

Love, prayers and hugs,

Kat
