Dear Dr. del Junco,
I am 51 years old. I have had an IUD since 1982. Three different doctors have tried to get it out over the years and couldn’t without surgery. The IUD is embedded in the wall of the uterus. I was told that I need a complete abdominal hystrorectomy. I have numerous fibroids and cysts on my ovaries. The floor of my uterus has dropped. The doctor wants to do a biopsy next week. I want all of my parts. I am not going to have anymore children, but I don’t want to give up my sex life either. I just recently got married. I can not accept my sex life will be over.
Please give me your advice. Does it look like I will have to have to have a hystrorectomy?

Dear Spiff-
No need to worry-FAS can take care of all your problems. We would use a laser to treat the diseases, resuspend your uterus, and yes I can remove the imbedded IUD during the surgery. You do NOT need a hysterectomy for these problems. Please call my office if we can help you.

Dear Ayala-
The only “proven” treatment for fibroid disease is surgery. Some women have experienced reduced symptoms, temporarily, with a low fat diet but the problems begin to reoccur as the fibroids get to a significant size.

Dear Dr del Junco,
I have multiple firoids that at this time measure 13x6x6cm total size. My GYN has suggested a hysterectomy. Ido not experience any abnormal bleeding, however, I do void frequently and have abdominal distention with occasional low back discomfort. Do you have any alternative suggestions. I would greatly appreciate your help. Do not want to have a hysterectomy.

Dear Anonymous-
Your symptoms are classic for fibroid tumor disease.
There is no reason to have a hysterectomy for this problem. FAS can help you. You need to have your tumors remove and the uterus reconstructed. Please contact my staff so we can help you.

I have been recently been diagnosed with an ovarian cyst. My symptoms were painful periods and heavy bleeding. They took two biopsies (an office procedure) and I have had two ulrasound tests. I am 42 and have had a tubal ligation. My doctor is suggesting possible hormonal treatment. Is there a dietary treatment for this type of ailment? I am seeing my doctor again in February to discuss test results and this treatment. What do you think?

Dear Diane-
Ovarian cysts may be caused by a hormonal imbalance. I would recommend that you get a complete hormone panel drawn to determine where you are.
Diets and supplements may alleviate symptoms but usually do not effect the disease. Good Luck

Dear Anonymous-
As mentioned previously, FAS with our Institute is only available in the United States, here in Los Angeles, California.

Dear Dr. DelJunco, I am a 34 years old and have a
history of two c-sections and a tubal ligation.
Over the past nine months I have experienced pain
in the right side of the back with heavy bleeding
and cramping during my menstrual cycle. I was
also diagnosed with hematura in the urine. I was
told that I had a probable kidney stone by a
urologist. It was later determined that I did not
based on an IVP test. The long and the short of
it now is, I had a Ct scan that revealed all
normal except a left adnexal mass measuring
approximately 2.5cm. This may represent cysts
within the ovaries. I subsequently underwent a
vaginal sonogram that revealed slightly enlarged
left ovary measuring 5.0×3.0×4.2cm with volume
measuring 32cc containing multiple follicular
cysts. When I went to my current GYN office I saw
a physician that I never met before. He basically
advised me after exam that there is nothing wrong
with me and I should come back in a year. I need
your opinion on whether or not I should take his
word or go for a second opinion. Do I have
something

Dear Worried-
I would get a second opinion and do recommend a diagnostic laparoscopy. This would allow assessment of the left adnexal mass and also rule out endometriosis.
It is possible that the hematuria and back pain may be associated with this disease. Good Luck.
