34 yr old female, undergone myomectomy three months back but having a slight swelling 2cms away from the naval incision on the right side. Please guide?
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

YES: Myomectomy surgery involves removing the fibroid tumors from the uterus. We usually remove the fibroids instead of a hysterectomy when the woman wants fertility, the fibroids are limited in size and number, or the woman does not want hysterectomy. If the surgery is with laparoscopy, the recovery is much easier than hysterectomy or open myomectomy. Talk with your gyn about the options. Best wishes. ...Read more

It's done through the cervix with minimal anesthesia. A nice little surgery. ...Read more
