Treating fibroids using conventional methods is big business. It’s no surprise that the hysterectomy is the second most popular surgical procedure performed in women each year and fibroids is one of the common reasons that hysterectomies are performed.
The hysterectomy costs upwards of $10,000 which may in part or in total be covered by health insurance if you do have health insurance. If you don’t, spending $10,000+ may not be possible unless you are doing very well financially.
But this is not the only conventional method of treating fibroids. There are many other invasive and non invasive procedures that can be performed which also cost thousands of dollars. However, the hysterectomy is the only surgical procedure that will guarantee that you will not have any more fibroids since the uterus is removed. Without a uterus, no uterine fibroids can develop but you will also not be able to get pregnant again as well as develop other side effects of this procedure.
If you have other surgical procedures besides the hysterectomy, fibroids may develop in the future since you will still have your uterus and these new fibroids may require additional surgical procedures, the costs of which can add up significantly over a lifetime.
There are other costs of treating fibroids besides those related to surgery. There are costs for doctor’s visits, medication, hospital admission when you have serious symptoms such as heavy bleeding, hormone therapy costs if this is the treatment approach you choose as well as many other costs. If you do have surgery, you also do have to consider the costs you will incur for any tools or resources to help you during the recovery period.
Treating fibroids cost on average
A recent study looked into the financial cost of treating fibroids and the results are as follows;
A systematic literature review published in the August 2015 issue of AJOG summarized the direct costs (ie, involving diagnosis and treatment) and indirect costs (ie, involving lost wages and reduced productivity) per patient associated with uterine fibroids in 26 research studies that were published in the time period 2000–2013.
“Given the high prevalence of uterine fibroids,” they state, “the associated debilitating symptoms that affect daily activities and the invasiveness of treatment options, the economic burden of UF (uterine fibroids) is considerable.” They cite a study by Flynn et al. that estimated a total direct cost (including inpatient and outpatient care) of $3.5 billion in the United States (in 2013 USD).
The researchers found that the total costs (the sum of direct and indirect costs) ranged from $11,717 to $25,023 per patient per year, after diagnosis or surgery among patients with uterine fibroids.
Most people don’t have this kind of money lying around. Even when insurance covers the bulk of the cost, there are still out-of-pocket expenses that will be required which can be significant. You also have to deal with other costs such as taking sick days when symptoms get the best of you or not performing at your best level because you are dealing with fibroids. Living with fibroids is not an option.
In addition, unless you opt for the hysterectomy which can have devastating effects, many of the conventional treatment methods do not prevent fibroid recurrence. What to do?
The holistic approach is the answer. Not only is this approach inexpensive compared to the above, but this is the only way to get to the root cause of fibroids and eliminate this issue for good so that you don’t have to deal with recurrence.
