Unlikely Coolsculpt would have any effect on the uterus or cause fibroids
I am sorry to hear you are not having a positive experience following your coolsculpt treatment. Were you told to massage the area after the treatment? Massage often helps with the result and softens the area. It is possible you have some dense scar or fat necrosis in the area that is responsible for the hardness you are feeling. The device should not penetrate the abdominal wall muscles much less have any effect on the uterus. That being said it would be advisable to have an evaluation by your physician and an ultrasound both of the area on the abdomen and of your uterus to make sure everything is ok. You can also try endermology to soften the area. If all else fails or it continues to be hard or enlarge - you can always consider a mini-tummy tuck although from your weight it sounds as if you are quite lean.
