Ask Dr. Townsend Q&A's
Name: bea

Question:
Just need another opinion. I am 48years old. Hgb= 6.6 Due to heavy periods. Myomectomy done in 1996. Now have a uterus@13wk.with Multiple fibroids.had Sonohystogram: Dr. Could not get a good seal. Was going for the ablation. Now told I must have a hysterectomy. Is this best recourse?

Answer:
Depending on the skill of the physician and what method he/she uses. I've done ablations on 16 weeks sized uteri with excellant results. Also, your fibroids are growing due to estrogren excess which is explained in my book. you need to be on the Dynamic duo.

Sincerely,

Dr. Townsend
