Heavy menstrual bleeding from GYN conditions like fibroids and adenomyosis is common. Excessive blood loss can cause anemia, and if the patient does not seek treatment, it can lead to potentially life-threatening complications such as congestive heart failure, arrhythmia, angina, and/or heart attack. This recent WTOP articles speaks about the risks and signs women should look out for: Anemia: The life-threatening risks of blood loss from fibroids

OCTOBER-2016-Anemia-for-web-2

CIGC patient Tonya suffered for years from fibroids and adenomyosis, and her symptoms got progressively worse.

“One month, I was hemorrhaging, and then all of a sudden, the bleeding stopped but the pain didn’t. I remember being in the house, and I was very weak. I was very anemic. I walked across the street to a Starbucks, I thought I needed something to eat. As soon as I was in Starbucks, I had to sit down, because I was feeling really dizzy, and really shaky. I went next door to an urgent care and they had to put me into a wheelchair because I couldn’t stand any longer. After all of the tests, they determined I was dehydrated from losing so much blood.”

Tonya’s full story is available here: Tonya Got Her Life Back: CIGC Minimally Invasive Hysterectomy

At The Center for Innovative GYN Care, minimally invasive fibroid removal can be achieved with LAAM myomectomy to preserve fertility or with laparoscopic hysterectomy using the DualPortGYN technique, as definitive treatment for fibroids. Both procedures, developed by Paul MacKoul MD and Natalya Danilyants MD use only 2 small incisions, and post-operative recovery is less than 2 weeks. Women travel from around the country and around the world for CIGC’s advanced procedures. If you are residing outside the DC area and lack minimally invasive options for treatment close to home, look into our travel program.
