Okay, those of you in/around the Mass/CT/RI region...can anyone give me referrals to gynecologists who would treat fibroids but who wouldn't necessarily want to take out my uterus? 'Cause, I might have use for it yet, an' all.

Women who've had kids preferred, but the no hysterectomy thing takes precedence in this case.

Anyone?

My PA says there's no need to take the uterus if there's no symptoms. But I'd sure like to be able to sleep on my stomach again without feeling four months pregnant.

I have no clue if my gyn would advise that or not, but I do like him. A lot. Dr. Marc Jaffe. His practice is in East Providence. anadandy and I both go to him (I recced him to her).

The Virgin Islands is too far, right? I think Leo Sorger is there these days. This article says he lives on the Cape sometimes, too:

He is board-certified in both. He has indeed seemed to exist more in the OB world, with his teaching and activism. But as far as I knew, he always saw GYN patients, as well.

It doesn't appear that he has what would constitute a practice any more (though I don't know if he may be still affiliated with the ones he had back when I was going to see him, both in Malden, and in Groton). If it were possible to have a conversation with him, I'd bet it would be a very informative one. I'd bet he would not immediately recommend a hysterectomy, especially when you don't want one, and wish to try alternatives. He's obviously always been for the most natural and least invasive options for everything, until extraordinary circumstances begin to demand extraordinary actions.

Dr. Sorger was the midwife's best friend back in the day. :) Although oddly, it seems he's a distributor for what looks like the medical arm of Amway or something.

My NP said I don't need to do anything, really, but I'd like my clothes to fit again, and I do have minor, minor symptoms.
