Fibroids: The Alien Assassins in My Body

Fibroids testimonial – Suffering by Denise N. Fyffe

  Suffering, to some of us, is the only true intimacy we have ever known. It never leaves. It never forsakes us. It is so deeply entrenched in our psyche that we know no other normal. Suffering, an all too familiar element in my life; I wish it never was, I wish I knew of … Continue reading Fibroids testimonial – Suffering by Denise N. Fyffe

Fibroids testimonial – Atopic Dermatitis, The rash from hell by Denise N. Fyffe

It escapes my mental faculties why women have to suffer so much. Even worse, is why do I have to suffer, when I am already suffering?

It's 11:11 p.m. on January 11th and I am a little concerned about the healing progress of my myomectomy surgical incision. Let's just say it's being stubborn.

Fibroids testimonial – Time to pee, poop and pass gas by Denise N. Fyffe

On my second night I am a bit light headed. No bowel movement or gas as yet, so no food only liquids. My right hand is swollen, probably because it is sporting two main lines.

My doctor, Dr. Rishi Chand, visits the next day at noon after the surgery; it is then I learned the true seriousness of what occurred. My womb had more surprises than was originally planned for.
