Symptoms from Fibroids: Margo’s Story

Swelling, Pain and Heavy Bleeding Are Symptoms from Fibroids: Margo’s Story

Meet Margo, who was experiencing many symptoms from fibroids. Her uterine fibroids were very large, and she felt them push against her ribs when she sat in the car. It was hard to bend over since her fibroids got in the way. Not only was Margo feeling pressure in her abdomen and pelvis, but the fibroids also put force on her veins, causing her legs to swell.

She had never experienced these symptoms before, except for the occasional occurrence from high heels. She endured the swelling 24/7, and even compression stockings didn’t help her tired, achy legs and feet. Margo’s suffering from the symptoms from fibroids also included constipation, fever and chills. Her monthly bleeding was so heavy that her B12 and iron levels dropped so much that she became anemic and required a blood transfusion.

What Are Uterine Fibroids?

Uterine fibroids affect three out of four women, usually between the ages of 30 and 50. They are usually benign, but fibroids may cause life-altering symptoms, like the symptoms Margo experienced. Women of African American ancestry are more likely to be affected. Fibroids do not always cause problems. Some women don’t even know that they have uterine fibroids, only to discover them during tests for other conditions.

What Are Fibroids

Margo was tired of feeling tired. She was frustrated with her painful symptoms from fibroids and wanted to find a solution that would alleviate the pain and distress. Margo wanted to feel like her old self again. She wanted to be #FibroidFree. One day on Facebook, she saw a post about a doctor with offices conveniently located in Dallas and Duncanville—a respected specialist in interventional radiology—who performed a procedure to stop the symptoms from fibroids without surgery. Margo found the website and read about the successes Dr. Suzanne Slonim has with Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE). Margo couldn’t believe that there is a way to get rid of her period problems and fibroid pain without a hysterectomy!

Free Yourself of Symptoms from Fibroids with UFE

Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) is a non-surgical procedure that blocks the blood flow to uterine fibroids, causing them to shrink. It is minimally invasive and requires only a small incision. UFE costs less than surgery and is covered by most insurance companies. Plus, recovery time is much shorter than with hysterectomy; that means you can get back to your normal routine much more quickly! Thousands of women have had their symptoms from fibroids treated with UFE by Dr. Slonim, one of the leading experts of non-surgical fibroid treatment and the founder of Fibroid Institute Dallas.
