adventures in building a family and living authentically
Yes, but what does it MEAN?
I will write more later but wanted to post the message I just received from my doctor. It is full of objective information but no guidance or application of that information to pregnancy odds. I'm posting in hopes you will give me your thoughts or share any knowledge you have about this type of fibroid and potential negative impacts of it compressing the cavity. Thanks!
p.s. yes, I survived my second MRI with the help of an awesome tech and being able to tilt my head up and look out the end of the tube.

I'm glad that you had the MRI done.
The findings were very clear. You had a large posterior fibroid which did not enter into the cavity, but did compress it somewhat. You also have the tiny polyps which we did see in the clinic.
Your options are to consider removing the polyps at this time and leaving the fibroid alone. Or to consider a laparoscopic myomectomy because the fibroid appears to press the cavity although it does not enter into the cavity.
If you would like to consider more aggressive therapy with removal of the fibroid, we can send a referral for you. If you would like to have the polyps removed only, you can proceed with that option.
Please do call the REI nurses at 752-6893 if you have any further questions or concerns.
