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.

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.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
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!

Depends: 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.

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.See 2 more doctor answers
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.
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.
