Exactly 1 year ago today I was heading into surgery to have as many of my 6 fibroid tumors removed as possible, and I only have 3 tiny scars as evidence. I am so thankful for that day because that day literally changed my life. I was miserable for the 2 years prior to my surgery. Having 6 fibroid tumors the size of large lemons growing in and on your uterus can be very life altering. I am so thankful that God pointed me in the right direction towards the amazing surgeon that I found in the Folsom area. She did the surgery, but she had a fertility expert in there with her telling her which tumors she could take and still preserve my fertility. That is why they only took 4 of the 6. They had to leave 2 in because if they took them I may not be able to get pregnant. And now 1 year later, as we are getting very close to embarking on the journey of starting a family, I am thankful that I chose to have that surgery.
WARNING!!! DO NOT SCROLL DOWN ANY FURTHER IF YOU HAVE A WEAK STOMACH!
