Myomectomy: If you have a month to prepare try and optimize your health. I would discontinue any bad habits such as alcohol tobacco. I would start a good multivitamin with iron. If you are over weight try and lose a few pounds prior to the procedure. If you have any medical conditions diabetes etc follow up with your internist for a "tune up". It s a very common procedure. I am sure you are going to do well.
