Hi there, I am facing a laparoscopic mastectomy in a few months to take out one 12cm fibroid that is sitting at the lowest part of my uterus. I am okay about having the surgery, I welcome it. I very hesitant about the medication that my doctor has prescribed to me leading up to the surgery – Lapron. From everything that I have read and all of the videos I have watched and websites I have read – it sounds very scary and the side effects are not something I am interested in. I am 32 years old, married, never had a child and don’t want children. I would like to preserve my uterus if possible, but wonder if this surgery can be done without taking Lapron? I understand it helps shrink the fibroid, yet I have a lot of stress at work right now and I worry that it will very negatively affect my mood/ruin my sometimes strained marriage, I don’t want to lose my hair or gain more weight. I don’t have unbearable periods, so is it possible to speak with my surgeon and let her know how uncomfortable I am taking this drug? Are there any alternatives? Can this surgery be done without taking Lapron? I am in Canada too, not too sure if that affects your answer. Thank you.
Hi and welcome to question doctors.com
Luprun has many side effects yes..but does it mean it is growing to show up with you??!
Not necessarily ..side effects may happen but may not happen..this depends on your body response..my opinion is go ahead do not worry …if any side effect started then contact your doctor after..
Best wishes with speedy recovery
Yes surgury can be done without lupron but will have to sacrifice you uterus
Inducing Pseudopregnancy ,Progestins, Inducing Pseudomenopause, Danazol
IT HAS KNOWN SIDE EFFECTS AND NEEDS TO BE AVOIDED AS FAR AS POSSIBLE. TRY OTHER WAYS. UNLESS AND UNTILL ITS DEFINITELY NEEDED,DO NOT GO FOR IT.
lapron has more beneficial effects as compared to its side effects. so my opinion is go ahead with lapron.
this surgery can be done without taking lapron. avoid it if you are too anxious about it.
