Generally 1-2 weeks: After removing fibroids, having intercouse will not cause any problems, but often it is normal for it to be painful for at least 1-2 weeks. I tell my patients to wait at least a week, but if it is painful, to back off until the pain goes away. ...Read more

I have a fibroid tumor and need a hysterectomy because I am loosing a lot of blood. What would happen if I don't have surgery?
If I start taking estrogen pills what that regulate my periods because I haven't had one in a year almost. I have a fibroid tumor removed in March I thought that the surgery would've regulated me. But it didn't. And now I'm thinking about taking estrogen
Not a good idea: It is not a good idea to take estrogen by its self to regulate your period. You are better off consulting a gynecologist to regulate your menstrual cycle. This is important because you had surgery and because taking estrogen alone without progesterone has serious consequences in the long run. ...Read more

Is surgery the only way to remove fibroids? Is there any danger if one decides not to have it removed
Fibroids: That depends on how large the fibroids are. Robotic surgery for fibroids is very safe, but at some point, if the fibroid is huge, you can't really do it robotically or laparoscopically and need to do it as an open operation. ...Read more
Surgery if Symptoms:
No medication permanently shrinks fibroid tumors. If you have symptoms options exist to help improve them:
myomectomy (cutting out fibroids, repairing uterus) for women who desire future pregnancy
hysterectomy (fibroid uterus removal), preferably laparoscopic or vaginal routes, best choice if family complete
uterine artery embolization - injection of foam to block uterus blood supply. ...Read more
Depends: There are two issues here: medical risk from anemia from too much bleeding and your quality of life. A doctor check your blood count and easily know if there is any danger but only you can decide how much the fibroids bother you. But fibroid surgery is usually minimally invasive now so it is much quicker and easier than in the past. ...Read more

I was diagnosed with a grapefruit sized fibroid tumor-- is it ok to wait 4months to have myomectomy?
Likely yes: The ultrasound exam should indicate any changes in the leiomyoma (fibroid tumor) that would be cause for concern. Otherwise, waiting four months, as the tumor has likely been around for many years, should not be an issue. You should definitely discuss this with your gyn surgeon, though. ...Read more
Why would fibroid tumor grow back just a month after having it removed with dnc? Can those spread in other organs? What will obgyn do now?
Serious issue: Fibroids are benign smooth muscle tumors (leiomyomas). If surgically removed they are not likely to grow back, and if they do they should do so slowly as they are slowly-growing tumors. So if there has really been re-growth documented, for example by ultrasound, in just a month something else is going on. Have your doctor check the pathology report for any sarcomatous tissue. ...Read more
I have been diagnosed with very large fibroids and need to schedule hysterectomy surgery. What happens to fibroids if you don't remove them?
Large fibroid: Any tumor can get large enough and bleed due to tissue necrosis as the blood supply is not adequate for its growth rate. Large benign tumors, in general, can also degenerate into cancerous lesions. It is best to follow the recommendation of your gynecologist and have it removed, as has been recommended. ...Read more
2 years ago found out had fibroids my dr felt was best to not have surgery so had ufe instead just found out they dint shrink what's options I have?
Symptoms?: My first question would be to ask you are you having symptoms. Fibroids don't have to be treated if they're small and not causing any problems. If there exceptionally large or causing pain or heavy periods and surgical options at this point are your best bet. A surgeon experienced in minimally invasive techniques can do this easily. ...Read more
I have a subserosal fibroid of 5.1 * 4.9 CM in the anterior wall, at least two intra mural fibroids of 3 CM each, 30 yrs no kids, do I need surgery?
Not if no symptoms: I wouldn't call a fibroid of 5 cm very large. In those locations of those sizes, they usually wouldn't cause any trouble. Reasons for considering surgery include abnormal bleeding pain and compression on adjacent organs. Compression on adjacent organs isn't likely at that size though. ...Read more
This is a general term. Tumor just means lump or mass, but is often used to describe cancer. A surgery to remove a tumor can be quite simple like removing a lipoma which is superficial all the way to a very complex surgery like the whipple which is used to remove tumors in the pancreas. Usually the mass and a margin of ...Read more
"tumor" literally translates as "mass", so even a fresh bruise could be called a "tumor". Doctors use the term "neoplasm" (tranlates literally as new growth) to describe tumors that are abnormal growths of cells. These may be benign or malignant; "malignant" = cancer. In everyday usage, we use "tumor" ...Read more
