Affect of Fibroids on the Organs of the Pelvis

November 21st, 2009

Can an enlarged uterus affect your bowel and kidneys and should it be removed if you are 46 and no signs of menopause yet?

It is very possible for large fibroids to put pressure on organs in the pelvis.  At times, large fibroids that put pressure on the bladder can cause a woman to experience frequent urination.  As a result, when using the restroom the individual may pass only small amounts of urine and may feel as though she has not completely emptied her bladder. Additionally, pressure caused by fibroids on the bowel system may cause constipation as the increased pressure may slow the movement of the bowels.

Also, you stated that you are deciding whether to remove your fibroids.  This decision is a personal one and only you can come to this answer.  However, if you are experiencing discomforting symptoms, you may want to look into embolization as a plausible method of fibroid treatment. The embolization procedure can be effective for women of all ages and there are many advantages to choosing this less invasive fibroid treatment.

    Dr. McLucas only carries out his UAE procedure in the US. If you are willing to consider flying out to the US to receive the procedure, as many of our patients have, then please give the Fibroid Treatment Collective a call at 866-362-6463 so that they can help you plan your visit. However, if you are not capable of coming to the US , then we would advise that you search for a Radiologist in your area using either a search engine or by contacting local hospitals so that they may be able to provide such a service.

    If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact the the Firboid Treatment Collective at the number provided above or at Thank you!
