Is weight gain associated with post myomectomy for removal of adenomyosis?

Is weight gain associated with post myomectomy for removal of adenomyosis?

No: No actual weight gain results following myomectomy. Temporaray weight gain due to swelling and water retention is common, and usually resolves in the first few weeks post-op.

Experiencing incontinence but never had a baby. Had myomectomy recently to remove fibroids but still have issues. I do light weight lifting. Cause??

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.

It's been 3 month since my abdominal myomectomy. When can I do weight lifting? When can I have sex? When can I have my laser bikini hair removal done?

It's been 3 month since my abdominal myomectomy. When can I do weight lifting? When can I have sex? When can I have my laser bikini hair removal done?

Ask Your Surgeon!: Your surgeon should be monitoring your progress. If you have no complications, you should be able to start progressive weight lifting. That depends upon what you were doing before the surgery and how well you are healing. If you are well healed, you should be able to start having sexual intercourse. Your surgeon will tell you when you can have the laser hair removal.

Will you ovulate after myomectomy?

Will you ovulate after myomectomy?

Yes: A myomectomy is simply removing a fibroid from the uterus or cervix. It should not greatly interfere with your ovulatory patterns. So, within 4-6 weeks from surgery ovulation should be the same as it was before.

What's a hysteroscopic myomectomy done for?

What's a hysteroscopic myomectomy done for?

Alternative idea: Fibroids are tissue growth that affect the uterus. They are extremely common and present in up to 50% of women (i've seen as high as 70% quoted). They commonly cause abnormal bleeding and a hysteroscopic myomectomy is done to remove fibroids that protrude into the cavity of the uterus as an alternative to hysterecomty. It's done through the cervix with minimal anesthesia. A nice little surgery.

What is hysteroscopic myomectomy? Please explain.

A GYN Procedure: Where they go in, under sedation usually, through the uterus and take out growths of muscle tissue of the uterus that should not be there and usually are responsible for pain and bleeding (fibroids). It is the alternative method of reaching them to a surgical approach through the abdomen by some means. Hysteroscopic means they are going up through the inside of the uterus.

Had myomectomy 3 months now bleeding has not stopped?

See myomectomy MD: You need to go back to your myomectomy MD and have him/her check for additional fibroids especially ones that are under the endometrium (lining of the womb) called a sub mucous fibroid. Multiple recurrent fibroids are very common even after myomectomy.

When can I start masterbating after myomectomy nearly 2 weeks ago?

When can I start masterbating after myomectomy nearly 2 weeks ago?

Now if no pain: If you are not having pain ok to masterbate now. Just nothing in the vagina yet. Be aware sometimes the uterus will cramp with orgasm if myomectomy was recent enough, so you might cramp.

Is it safe to do a v steam after a myomectomy, which was done on june 3rd?

Read answer: You are 6 weeks post op, please check with your gynecologist. Also, it depends on whether it was a open or laparoscopic myomectomy.

Open myomectomy done 5 weeks now still feel pain esp on my lower back. Help?

Couple of ideas: Only 5 weeks out, you can certainly still be having post-op pain. Scar tissue may be an issue as well. Did you have this pain prior to surgery? Best to check with your obgyn and good luck!

How soon is two soon to ttc after a myomectomy, which I had a month and 7 days ago?

Depends on the type: If you had a vaginal myomectomy with no abdominal incisions, you can probably try to get pregnant after two cycles. If you have a robotic, laparoscopic or open myomectomy, it will depend on how deep your fibroids were and if the doctor had to dissect all the way to the uterine cavity to get out the fibroid (s) depends with the location within the uterus.

Is it worth it to have myomectomies at 42 or should I just use a surrogate before my eggs are gone?

Is it worth it to have myomectomies at 42 or should I just use a surrogate before my eggs are gone?

Gynocologist: This is best answered by an ob-gyn doctor, who is an expert in women's reproductive question. I don't see the question side. Maybe u asked the wrong group of doctors? Or the administrators at health tap should redirect ur question to a gynecology group.

In Dec 2016 I had a myomectomy. Jan 2017 I had a normal cycle, this month I've been bleeding for 18 days. Is this normal?

In Dec 2016 I had a myomectomy. Jan 2017 I had a normal cycle, this month I've been bleeding for 18 days. Is this normal?

Yes: The disturbance of the endometrial and uterine lining caused the fibroids/surgery can take some time to repair itself. Be patient. However, you should also be vigilant and monitor symptoms closely. The bleeding and related symptoms should gradually improve. If this is not the case, consult with doctor. Good luck!

Does anyone at this location have plenty of experience performing hysterscopic myomectomies the traditional way versus the robotic way?

Does anyone at this location have plenty of experience performing hysterscopic myomectomies the traditional way versus the robotic way?

Yes: A hysteroscopic myomectomy is the best approach for submucosal fibroids < 3.5 cm located inside the cavity of the uterus. The robotic myomectomy is best for subserosal fibroids that are coming from the outer surface of the uterus. For fibroids deeply embedded in the wall of the uterus, robotic myomectomies are possible but more difficult so consider a hysterectomy if childbearing is complete.
