Will I Lose Weight After Fibroid Removal
Depends: Fibroid usually refers to a leiomyoma (benign tumor of smooth muscle) of the uterus. Fibroids are not necessarily associated with weight loss or weight gain themselves, but sometimes the tumors can be large in which case removal might result in a noticeable difference. Also, any type of surgery can have some impact on weight, depending on appetite and retaining fluid during recovery. ...Read more

Have an exam: I strongly encourage you to have a routine exam from your gynecologist. It is always a good idea to follow-up on the removal of fibroids with routine exams. This type of exam can only be done properly in a clinic or office. I wish you the best with your health and I am available to discuss this and other health issues with you. ...Read more
Myomectomy: Uterine fibroids can be removed with a procedure called myomectomy. This is often possible with a minimally-invasive approach- laparoscopy and sometimes hysteroscopy. Small instruments are used to dissect the fibroids from the uterine wall and then to repair the incision. Even very large fibroids can be removed this way. ...Read more
Depends: It depends on the size of the fibroid and the skill of the surgeon. Some surgeons are very skilled at minimally invasive or robotic surgeries and are comfortable even with very large fibroids. Make sure you are evaluated by someone skilled in advanced laparoscopy/robotics for an opinion if a different doc tells you that you must have an open hysterectomy. That's not always the case! ...Read more

I'm 36 and my pubic hairs are half silver already. I had fibroid removal in 2011. After that my hairs started turning silver. My eye lashes as well.?
I usually perform some sort of follow up evaluation after the surgery to make sure that the whole fibroid is gone. That can be done with hysterosonogram or office hysteroscopy or hsg. If fibroid is gone then I usually tell the couple that it is fine to start trying...Assuming there are no other issues.
Good luck. ...Read more

I had a myomectomy Before 4 weeks, and I had yesterday a strong menstruation with pain as before the removal of the fibroid? Is it normal
I'm 53 and had a D&C/hysteroscopy/polyp and fibroid removal. I started having hot flashes 10 days later & get them every 1/2 hour. Could the D & C have caused this? Maybe messed with my hormones?
May be coincidental: The actual procedures that you had should not have changed your ovarian function, meaning that they should not have changed your hormones. However, you are in perimenopause, so lots of things can bring on more hot flashes. Stress is a big one, and you just had a big stress to your body with the procedure. Any change in sleep, diet, or meds associated with the procedure might also contribute. ...Read more
Is it safe to take OptiBac probiotics and Kefir before/following prolapse surgery and fibroid removal?
Colposcopy: If you had an abnormal pap smear then the next step is an examination under a microscope called a colposcopy. This will evaluate the extent of the problem and will guide the next steps in management. Abnormal pap smears may indicate HPV changes or precancerous cells of the cervix. This is not related to uterine fibroids. ...Read more
I have had two fibroid removal surgeries, which were both done as a laproscopy through the vagina. I still have fibroids. Can I have a baby?
Depends....: That's a hard question to answer in this format. It depends on where the remaining fibroids are located. The closer to the uterine lining, the worse your chances. Also depends on the size of the fibroids and the presence/absence of scar tissue. You really need an evaluation of the uterine cavity (hysteroscopy or sonohystogram or HSG). I recommend you go see a fertility specialist near you. ...Read more

Trying to conceive after fibroid removal and course of Zoladex (goserelin) implant - heavy and painful periods still, 4 months after treatment?
Normal will return:
As you know Zoladex (goserelin) suppresses the hormones that the ovary produces.
Now that the course of suppression is over, the ovaries will begin to cycle. The brain/ovary/uterus system is very complex and it could take a little time for you to cycle perfectly. Also consider that you have had pelvic surgery which represents a stress to all systems especially the reproductive system. ...Read more
Experiencing incontinence but never had a baby. Had myomectomy recently to remove fibroids but still have issues. I do light weight lifting. Cause??
Hard to know: Incontinence can be caused by an anatomical defect (stress incontinence that occurs with coughing, sneezing) and may be treated surgically or may be a nerve issue (urge incontinence/overactive bladder) which may be treated medically. Both may respond to pelvic muscle exercises and voiding on a scheduled, say every 2 hours. See a specialist if this continues to bother you. ...Read more
Dr. Is dieting safe if one has anemia due to fibroids bleeding? I'm trying to loose weight that I've gained, I suspect estrogen to be the cause.
Excess estrogen?: Despite health issues, a change in diet that reduces starch, sugars, and excess fatty foods should not cause harm. I hope you are getting medical help for your fibroids. If they are causing anemia, then something should be done about them. Ask your doc to test your Progesterone level and if it's low take Progesterone (not medroxyprogesterone) 100 mg @ bedtime day 12-25 of your cycle. ...Read more

How big or how small shld the fibroids be in order to be removed by/or perform hysteroscpic myomectomy? And how many fibroids shld one have 3 or 4?
I assume you mean: Myosure resection, what did your gyn say, usually u do not want to remove larger than 3-4 cm, obviously there are experts who could possibly remove larger ones but those should be done in hospital that has all of the necessary facilities, I do myosure in the office but only on smaller ones no more than 3-4 cm and no more than 3-4 at one time will I do in office but please discuss with your gyn. ...Read more
Need better option: You could repeat myomectomy but this would not be the best option. The fact that it failed so soon after the surgery suggests that there are a lot more fibroids in the uterus then could be removed. Uterine fibroid embolization (ufe) is a non-surgical procedure performed by interventional radiologists that treats all of the fibroids in the uterus (much less likey to recur than myomectomy). ...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
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
I'm 5 months post myomectomy and experiencing pain on the same site where fibroid was, especially during ovulation. Should I worry?
I was diagnose with 2 fibroids. 1 measure 4cm and the other is 2cm. My question is, with this sizes is it necessary to undergo myomectomy?
Myomectomy: You only need to treat fibroids if they are large, rapidly growing, causing pain, bleeding or infertility. Treatment can be surgery, drug or other. Surgery can be myomectomy, hysterectomy or other variation. A 4cm fibroid is likely to become large enough to require treatment at some point in the next few years. Find a good laparoscopic gyn surgeon if you consider surgery. ...Read more
Can a bikin myomectomy surgery be performed with this measurement 9.2x8.4x11.4cm and 2 small fibroids 5.5?
Surgery blood loss: Although myomectomy has the potential to lose significant amounts of blood, most do not. Usually, the patient's are already anemic from earlier heavy menstrual periods and on supplemental iron rx. In a competent surgeon's hands, blood loss is usually less than 500 cc's and does not require transfusion but you need to follow your surgeon's pre-operative instructions. ...Read more
