I have written on Spine Health trying to find somebody with a similar case but to no avail. Just recovering from a hysterectomy for removal of a large fibroid uterus. My walking coincidentally had been worsening throughout the time of me being monitored for my fibroids but no connection was made by my GP. He believes I have some damage to my sciatic nerve that has caused my leg weakness but I haven't had any trauma to my back and the MRI of my lumbar doesn't show anything. I went to see a Neuro and she said there are changes to the sciatic nerve but it looked like something was pinching or pressing it higher up than in my leg? I mentioned the large fibroid uterus and she advised getting their position checked. I kept asking to be referred to my Gyn as he didn't know I was struggling to walk for the passed 2 years and was getting worse with every monthly period . Eventually I fell in the street when my leg gave out in July and that's when I pushed forward myself and one thing led to another and here I am a month on from hysterectomy and removal of a large fibroid uterus lying on the left side where all my symptoms were. I have to recover from surgery before I get the all clear for exercise and physio but I just really want to know if anybody has heard of anything like this because although I have read about fibroids causing pain, backache etc. I've not read that if in the wrong position, they can cause leg weakness. Neither the GP or Gyn have said definitively what is or has caused it? The Gyn operated because it was necessary to remove the uterus because I met so many of the criteria for removal. Thankfully not cancer! He just said he hoped as well as relieve me of heavy painful periods and anaemia it might improve and help me rehabilitate my leg strength? Anybody any thoughts at all? I can't walk without crutches at the moment or I fall. If it wasn't the fibroid uterus what's caused it?
