Can't say: This could be either. It depends in part on whether they were blocked before the procedure or only after. Discuss this with your doctor. ...Read more

Depends: If swelling of tubes are from fibroids blocking blood flow then the swelling should reduce after surgery. If tubes are patent then you should be able to conceive. Sometimes, you may have pelvic infection in the tubes without an STD. I am sure your doctor checked the potency of your tubes Either way, you must be aware of increased tubal pregnancy rates if tubes are nor normal. Good Luck. ...Read more

Not to worry: It could be a small stitch granuloma- which is a reaction of the body to getting rid of the suture; or it could be a small seroma-which a small walled off fluid filled sac. You should probably have the doctor that did the surgery take a look and see what they think. If it is one of the two things, it generally will go away on its own; but may need to be removed. ...Read more

How long does it take to walk by yourself after a laparotomy myomectomy?

1 day: On the evening of surgery, you will have help standing and possibly walking. By the next day, your foley catheter will come out and you will be able to walk to the bathroom by yourself. You will feel incisional pain and may find yourself hunching over a bit for the first week. Walking early and often is important to prevent clots in the veins. ...Read more
