C-section vs Open Myomectomy

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi all. I was just wondering if there are ladies out there who had both a c-section and a open myomectomy. How does it compare in terms of pain and recovery period.

    Hi IBEX,

    I had two c-section before I had open myomectomy, they are not the same thing at all. Open myomectomy recovery time is longer than cs and is quiet painful. It also depend on the size and position of the fibroids

    I wish you all the best.

      Hi Pam,

      The joy of holding your baby in your arms always overwhelming and is easy for you to forget the pain of cs.

      Surgeon do work on you during myomectomy procedure, they need to detach and cut off fibroids where necessary while cs is just for the baby to come out.

      In comparison cs - myomectomy

      4 -  9. Based on my personal experience.

      Thanks for these encouraging words Cecilia. I feel a little bit better now and it makes sense. My doc also told me your body produces various hormones during the birth process that aids with healing (don't know how accurate that is) so the pain is less and healing process easier. And as you said you have a wonderful new human being in your arms 😊
