I have a left posterior uterine body fibroid measuring 6.0 x 6.9 x 6.2 Do I need it removed? D

1.When fibroids are causing constipation, does it mean that they are pressing on the intern organs ? 2. Can they cause damage to the kidneys or liver?

1.When fibroids are causing constipation, does it mean that they are pressing on the intern organs ?  2. Can they cause damage to the kidneys or liver?

1. Yes 2. No.: The pelvis is packed with organs all fighting for elbow room -- an enlarged uterus blocks rectal evacuation. It could also cause urinary frequency and urgency; or even issues with sex. If they're that big, you may be headed for hysterectomy. The kidneys and liver are tucked way up high and out of the pelvis -- no worries there. Take a stool softener to maintain a stool that curls and bends. ...Read more

Try high fiber diet.: Lots of water and fiber can help move things along better. There is also some evidence to support adding probiotics to your diet. Finally, it may be helpful to rest your feet on a low stool while you are sitting on the toilet, as this may alter the angle of the rectum, and avoid excessive straining.. ...Read more
