Seriously guys, this IS for the ladies. Though I know most of you will still read it xD
Ladies, I was diagnosed in 2010 with about 3 to 4 fibroids so big that my uterus is 2 to 2.5 times the size it should be. Needless to say, the only
health ins I have now is from the Food Stamp place and I have read they will NOT do hysterectomies except under a very rare case. I found out, though
fibroids are non cancerous in themselves, things could become cancerous if I don't get them taken out (a friend told me that; a doctor did NOT. Just
the fact you COULD get cancer from them not being removed terrifies me).
Will Obamacare cover this? If so, then I'm more than grateful to finally get it, whenever that time will come. If not, do any of you have any
options/ideas etc? I haven't been to the dr since 2010 and that was an ER doctor due to my cramps being so horrific I felt I was dying and the free
clinics weren't open. Been suffering with those for about 8 years now and that was my first time going to the ER. I'd gone to clinics prior but was
always told it was just in my head or just normal cramps. Sorry but, no normal cramps will have you screaming til you're hoarse, unable to sit, lie,
move, breathe, you fall down at work screaming like you're being murdered with an axe....... and no cramps go on 22 to 26 days out of the month
habitually. It took an ER doctor to figure out that i have all those fibroids, minimal size of an apple, up to grapefruits. Believe me, I broke down
crying when she told me. I finally had an answer and name for my problems.
Anyway, if anyone knows if Obamacare will cover this, I'd be eternally grateful. I'll be 40 in March so I'm more than done wanting kids. I already
have an almost 18 year old as is.
