Uterine Myomectomy Surgery
A myomectomy is the procedure when fibroids are removed and the uterus remains. Myomectomies can be done in a variety of ways, depending on the location of the fibroids. Fiboids in the uterine cavity can often be removed hysteroscopically, with no abdominal incision. Depending on size and location, myomectomies can be done laparoscopicaaly, ...Read more
Yes!: These procedures should only be performed for women who are done having kids or are sure they don't want kids in the future. Uterine fibroid embolization (ufe) and uterine artery embolization (uae) block off blood vessels that supply fibroids - fibroids shrink but don't go away 100%. Some of the vessel-blocking material reduces blood flow to your ovaries, lowering egg supply (ovarian reserve). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
U/S rpt:"Enlarged uterus lobulated contour&multiple uterine fibroids. [email protected] fundus' posterior wall&left fundal wall 3.1cm.Endometrial thickness normal,ovaries obscured byOverlying bowel gas" Any tests/scan/type of surgery recommend?
Fibroids: Are relatively common, and if you are not having any symptoms related to them, probably nothing needs to be done. It sounds like you had a transabdominal ultrasound and your ovaries could not be seen due to bowel gas. This happens occasionally. If your doctor wants to check your ovaries, you need to have a transvaginal ultrasound. If the ovaries are still difficult to see, MRI might be useful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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

Yes: There are many women who have had successful pregnancies after uae. The data is relatively weak, but seems to indicate that fertility after embolization is similar to fertility after multiple myomectomy. A patient needs to discuss the details of her individual situation with her doctors before deciding on a therapy. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Precision: Robot assisted surgery is performed in order to accomplish hysterectomy with minimally invasive method possible when abdominal hysterectomy must be done otherwise.

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
Not necessarily.: Many, many women have fibroids as they get older. Most don't even know they have them. If you are having symptoms due to them, like heavy periods, etc., then they may be worth treating. Discuss your options with your doctor. Very very rarely, a fibroid can become cancerous.

Yes: Any hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) is considered a major surgery. With that said, there are several different modalities by which a uterus is removed. A lash is a type of laparoscopic hysterectomy in which the uterine body is removed but the cervix is left in the body. It is a simpler surgery with less time spent in the or. Recovery time is typically shorter as well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
For postmenopausal:: I would recommend oophorectomy in a postmenopausal patient, due to the (small, but possible) risk of a malignancy. While the most common type of dermoids are benign, they can be some that are malignant, and in a menopausal female i would recommend oophorectomy instead of cystectomy, to ensure that the tumor is removed entirely. For a premenopausal patient i would recommend cystectomy. ...Read more
