Laura Anthony’s Story: I had surgery for a fibroid the size of a volleyball.

June 07,2020

Four weeks ago, I underwent surgery to remove a uterine fibroid the size of a volleyball. I opted to have a hysterectomy.

Never in my wildest dreams would I have believed this would happen to me. I knew I had a small fibroid. Then it started to grow rapidly, as it attached itself to my bladder and used that source of blood to grow.

This has been one heck of a journey that has caused me depression, lots of anxiety, a sense of loss and feelings of guilt. However, I’m finally on the road to recovery.
