27 yrs old unmarried.Recently, laparoscopic surgery done (removing large 8cm uterus fibroid).After surgery, how many days bleeding goes on?
Bleeding(answer 1): First of all and probably most important is where exactly is the bleeding at? Next is for how long has the bleeding been taking place? Then, how much bleeding is there? If it is at the skin incisions, for just a day, and just spots of blood on your dressing, then I wouldn't worry too much. Just keep your routine follow up appointment. If it is from your vagina or skin incision, for just a day or ...Read more

No: I would highly recommend removing them laparoscopically (minimally invasive approach). Although this method is more difficult to perform, for the patients, there will be great benefit (cosmetically small pleasing scars, 2 week recovery, less pain, quicker return to work). Please do your homework and find a skilled laparoscopic surgeon. The differences are night and day! ...Read more
depends: The type of incision can be the same in both c-section and ovary resection, the surgeon opens the skin along the bikini line and then opens the fascia from the umbilicus to the pubic bone. The same suture, usually absorbable can be used in both. The ovarian cyst surgery also can be done with a laprascopic approach, minimally invasive. Okay to ask your surgeon about these choices. Be well. ...Read more

I have an 8 cm intramural fibroid, a 2.5 cm fibroid, and spots that may become fibroids, w/pain, long periods, & pressure. Hysterectomy or myomectomy?
Myo vs Hysterectomy: The answer to your question lies in your desire for fertility. Myomectomy is generally performed for women who want to preserve their fertility & the fibroids may be causing miscarriages. It's not the best choice for a patient with pain and heavy bleeding because it may not solve that. If you are done with childbearing hysterecomy is less complicated and will give you better symptom relief. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I underwent myomectomy via lap before 3 weeks.What is the normal recovery time to get pregnant again?(2 myomas 3*3cm-submucous &intramural).
Unknown: I would have suspected your post op instructions to suggest delaying sex or pregnancy, at least through a couple of normal cycles after the surgery. No sex, no pregnancy, no worry. See your OB and figure it out. If the uterus was possibly weakened with the resections, that could be an issue with a pregnancy and weak wall! ...Read more
