I asked him point blank if there were other treatment options for a 1? fibroid and was told no (actually, shook his head no) even though he said repeatedly the fibroid was non-cancerous (pap, cervical, endometriosis, CA125 tests were all normal) and I was adamant that I did not want a hysterectomy although he originally recommended a myomectomy. He later said he would have to remove the entire uterus because the fibroid was in the lining. Intramural fibroids are common, can be removed by themselves to preserve the uterus, and rarely cause pain unless they grow very large. My fibriod was one inch and he said my only option was a hystrectomy. Sadly and not surprisingly, surgery did not relieve my acute and chronic pain which was actually in my lower right groin (had a R inguinal hernia). Did he not see the reason/indication for the CT scan (which revealed the fibroid) was RLQ pain? Can you say obvious? Just a TERRIBLE experience from beginning to end. In the post-op visit, he closed the door and yelled at me "YOU saw the pathology!" (again, a one inch fibroid in my uterine wall) and refused to give me the path results (only had his nurse hand the results to me on my way out). I told him I was worried because I was in no-pay status from missing so much work and he said "You have pay, you have no pay, you have psycho-social issues." Nice.
