If I donate my blood (pint) in advance before myomectomy surgery, can I be assured that my uterus will be saved if I lost blood whilst operation/sur?

Life isn't that way: In life, assurances are hard to come by. Donating a pint of blood only assures one has a pint of blood in the blood bank. That's all. Sometimes, one just has to have faith that things will turn out okay. ...Read more

Find a doctor that does bioidenticle HRT. Best wishes ...Read more

Is abdominal myomectomy an effective treatment for uterine fibroid tumors?

Is abdominal myomectomy an effective treatment for uterine fibroid tumors?

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

How safe is it that the gyn whose specialty listings does not include myomectomy but instead hysteroctomy to perform myomectomy surgery? Save -uterus

How safe is it that the gyn whose specialty listings does not include myomectomy but instead hysteroctomy to perform myomectomy surgery? Save -uterus

Ask: It would be impractical for surgeons to list all procedures that they are qualified to perform. The first step I would suggest is to ask your doctor if this is a procedure he/she commonly performs. If so, how many have been performed in the last week? Month? Year? If you know any women who have been patients of this doctor, ask what there experience was like. Consider a 2nd opinion. ...Read more

I was told that if you loose too much blood during myomectomy surgery, whilst you're operated on, then, dr. Will take uterus out.9cm fibroid. I want kid?

O.R. permit issue: Every myomectomy has the potential to cause massive blood loss that may or may not require clamping the main blood supply to the uterus making the uterus "useless' thus it's removed in that emergency. The o.R. Permit that is signed by you includes that possibility for that reason. It happens rarely, but you must be prepared to lose the uterus if it occurs as it would then be "life saving". ...Read more

I was told that I have severe scarring in my uterus from previous myomectomies. I think im pregnant. What r my chances of going full term.

Pregnancy and scar: If you are pregnant, chances are that he scarring is not a problem in terms of the length you are able to carry. The problem is that often removal of fibroids, or any uterine surgery may cause malpresentation like breech or even pre term labor/delivery. Also, if the fibroid that was removed entered the endometrial cavity than a c/section at term would be in order as a method of delivery. ...Read more

Is it OK to find that there's metallic artifact (staples) on the uterus after a myomectomy? Thought it was strange since uterus expands w pregnancy.

Ok: Are you pregnant? They have to decide whether you may be high risk of rupture of the uterus which is a very serious condition. It all depends how the scar formed on the uterus.

2july I had myomectomy. Yesterday13july I masturbated (no pain).Today I had litt low abdominal pain+litt very light pink spoting. Did I damaged my uterus?

Probably not: Orgasm involves contraction of the uterine muscle which is still healing after a myomectomy this soon after surgery. Damage to the suture line usually would involve much more bleeding but depends upon the depth of the myoma. See your doctor, be honest, and let them evaluate. ...Read more
