GYN's Can large fibroids (3) ON top OF uterus  cause Sunkening IN of Ankle?Could it be they are pressing on the ORGANS ?I'm Anemic due heavy bleeding

Possible: By "sinking in" of ankles , I assume you mean pitting edema. Large fibroids can put pressure on the large iliac veins that bring blood from the legs and feet. That can cause a backup of fluid in the tissue of the legs and ankles which leaves a temporary fingerprint when you push in on the ankle. There are other causes such as cardiac failure that you should have checked out by your physician. ...Read more

Hi! Is it normal to have ongoing spotting and terrible menstrual cycles (pain, heavy bleeding) 3.5 months after fibroid surgery?

Hi! Is it normal to have ongoing spotting and terrible menstrual cycles (pain, heavy bleeding) 3.5 months after fibroid surgery?

Need evaluation: It really depends on how many fibroids were removed and their location. In general though I would say it's not normal over 3 months out. Especially if you feel like the pain is getting worse. Probably a good idea for you to go back to your surgeon and ask for an evaluation. In that period of time scar tissue can form (in uterus or pelvis) which can lead to pain. ...Read more
