Hello, i am new here. I thought I would join this site to get support and also hear from other ladies that has gone through fibroids removal. About me, I am a 38 year old female who has been diagnosed with fibroids three years ago. Back then, my fibroids were 2 cm and decided to just observe and see if it will shrink or get bigger. Three years later, the present, my fibroids were now 5 cm and a cyst was about that big as well. That’s when the doctor has decided to get a laparoscopic myomecty. I ended up getting out seven fibroids and 1 cyst. The doctor suggested that if I want to have babies in the future I need to wait about 8 to 10 months. I am also on medical leave from work for 3 weeks. so here I am. I hope to hear some positive outcomes from people on this forum also I wish everyone the best of luck and a healthy life .

    Hi your doctor was able to remove the fibroid and cyst? I have both too but my fibroid is bigger. And they saved your ovary? Are you in CA by chance? Also did they use a morcellator on your fibroid? Thanks!

      Hi Sakura, the doctor removed all the obvious fibroids and the cyst that he found when i did the laparscopic surgery. From the mri we saw 5 fibroids and 1 cyst but at the time of the surgery he found 7 fibroids. Yes, the doctor saved my ovaries and yes I am in California. I went to Kaiser. Im not sure if they used a morcellator, i dont know what that is

      Thanks for the info! I have Blue Shield. Not sure if I can see a Kaiser doc? A morcellator is a machine they insert in you that grinds up the fibroid into smaller pieces so they can remove it through a small incision, esp if it's a larger fibroid. vs. just cutting the fibroid and pulling it out in chunks. There's some controversy around morcellation as if for some reason your fibroid wasn't benign it might spread bad things. On the other hand, without the tool, if you have a super larger fibroid like 7cm and up, you'd have to have open surgery and deal with the extra risk and recovery time of that vs. laproscopic or robotic surgery. Sorry I'm not helping with your original question. 😃 I'm debating surgery myself and esp worried about saving my ovary depending on the dermoid size. Hoping it's still about 5cm or less. I know the fibroid is way larger.

      i dont think it was morcellation because i remember the doctor mentioned about how he took out the fibroids and send it to the lab and it came out benign and just regular fibroids. Good luck Sakura, hopefully tour fibroids are less that 5cm and the doctor saves your ovaries!

    hello

    I am 7 months post operation from myomectomecty to remove 25-30fibriods, I was very new to this procedure from last year, I am 44, no children, and I understand why I cannot have them, but I am always hopeful and with faith, but I have now no pain. These ' rent free' fibriods are out and no longer give me pain. I have the flattest tummy ever!!!! The downside is I had two blood transfusions, which I am glad I did.. my first 3 periods, were murderous, and to some extent still are.. and I am on BP tablets, as I have a history of high BP...but I thank God for my life 😃
