It shouldn't be: Any surgery can be serious. But if surgery for fibroids is indeed necessary (it isn't always), there are several surgical approaches. Laparoscopy and laparotomy are two of them.

After one surgery my uterine prolapse has come back worse than before.  Does it ever become urgent to redo the surgery?  I am just coping now.

Focus on what you have and then go from there. Some of us will pass through life without splitting a toenail. Most of the rest of us are not so lucky. ...See more

Fibroids: The only way to currently & truly "get rid" of any fibroid is surgery. The best situation is a solitary smaller fibroid that is accessible to hysteroscopic resection where there are no incisions other that in the uterus, or uterine artery embolization or using freezing or microwaving but these only "shrink" the tumors and in my opinion are quite experimental. ...Read more
