The Story Every Woman Needs To Know

Fibroid

December 19, 2013

By Dr. Tyra OldhamLANDsds Sustainable Voice News

This is a repost that every woman and partner or friend to a woman needs to know about uterine fibroid treatment. This is vital as the pleas for women’s health is critical to a safe, healthy and sustainable society.  The education of understanding health choices for long-term health is vital. I submit the intermingling of sustainability in health is key as the choices each woman makes today about their procedure to remove fibroid’s effects them tomorrow. Learn more about morcellation. I opted not to morcellate but rehabilitate.

The Story

Consider the health of women undergoing a stressful time where a woman’s health, feminine self and life come into focus.  The procedure of fibroid removal, often leading to a hysterectomy is common place.  Women having the big talk to choose a medical procedure that provides an immediate recovery versus a 4 to 6 week down time is based on choosing the laser versus a scalpel.   This was the consideration of a “Husband And Wife Doctors Claim Her Fibroid Removal Procedure Spread Cancer” based on one choice of laser versus long-term healing from a scalpel.

Dr. Amy Reed and her husband Dr. Hooman Noorchashm are campaigning against a standard procedure to remove fibroids in the uterus, called morcellation, in which the mass is ground up and removed in minimally-invasive surgery. They claim it spread Dr. Reed’s previously undetected cancer,” reported on Here and Now on NPR.

You are basically taking a procedure, which puts women basically in a collision course with a stage four cancer,” said Dr. Noorchashm, noting that this is what happened in his wife’s case.

Dr. Noorchashm and Dr. Reed joined Here & Now’s Robin Young to discuss the fibroid removal technique and their campaign against it. Dr. Reed has had follow-up surgeries to remove the cancer and will soon start chemotherapy.

I had to make the same choice a year and half ago. I understood from my wonderful doctor of Norton Health to consider my options.  The importance is that cancer cannot be detected within the mass.  It is the patient’s choice to determine the procedure. I chose the scalpel.

As a woman who had to make the choice to have my 2.5 pound fibroid removed or morcellated. Ichose the scalpel. My doctor communicated that morcellation would grind the fibroid into little pieces then removed.  My doctor shared that if cancer was present in the fibroid that it could spread anywhere in my body.  Morcellation allows for laser surgery and the alternative is to have your abdominal muscles cut, leaving you weakened with a scar.

In the  day of cosmetics the pull is to always use the laser option where recovery is quick.  My choice was painful where every movement caused pain but safe.  If the procedure is removed or not women need education on the choices that effect their life and body.

Choose to petition: Hooman Noorchashm’s Change.org petition to end the procedure
