My name is Kristian Lewis and I am, I have been diagnosed with fibroids since I was young age of 28, 29, and I was told that they were small; don't bother them. And then so, at a later age of 38, they became problematic, very symptomatic, and I ended up having a myomectomy, which kind of went bad. I had a very bad septic infection from that, so I had to go into surgery twice and then, it had took a little bit longer for myself to heal. So after that, it was a very trying year. A year after that, I went back to get a check-up and discovered that I had more fibroids. So, the other alternative, what I was thinking would be a hysterectomy, so I became proactive and did a little bit of research myself and I found Dr. McLucas, their staff called, went to the seminar and booked a consultation and that was the best thing I ever did for my life. So, now I am non-fibroid. I have no fibroids and I feel so good about myself in my life. It's just, every day is so much better. I don't have the symptoms that I used to have and I encourage every woman who has these problems, the fibroid problems, to please just, you know, go for a consultation with Dr. McLucas, and everybody is unique, every individual is different. Go for a consultation, and then go from there, but it was really, it changed my life. What uterine fibroid symptoms did you experience? I had a very bad menstrual cycle. It was getting to the point where it was very hard for me to get out of bed, and the pain was so bad that I would, you know, throw up a lot, migraines, very bad cramping; it just felt like my whole body was cramping. I had very bad bloating, I actually had outfits that I wore that during my menstrual cycle because I looked like I was about six months pregnant. I always thought I did. So, just always bloating, uncomfortable, constipation, feeling like I had to use the bathroom but couldn't use the bathroom, and just mood swings, depression, probably from that, just not, always feeling like there was always something wrong.
