Northside Hospital - Fibroids leave millions of women with pain

Fibroids leave millions of women with pain

Posted on: May 31, 2016


Michele Arbet was diagnosed with fibroids at 19. They left her in so much pain, she would sometimes tell people she felt like she was dying.

"And everybody thought, 'Oh, you're dying from a period?' No one believes how painful this is,” Arbet says. “When you stand up, you feel like you have a ten pound bowling ball in your uterus, in your stomach.  And your legs ache, your feet ache, because everything constricts."

Michele finally got help from Dr. Jason Levy, an interventional radiologist at Northside Hospital in Atlanta, where Arbet works.
