I really hope someone can share their thoughts and experiences regarding fibroids. I recently married and just hit 40, after TTC and failing, MRI scan revealed 6 fibroids, biggest one is 10.3cm whilst the other 5 are in regions of 2-3cm. There is only one which is within uterine cavity and is 3cm. The big one is sitting ontop of my uterus pushing into my bladder but it's not growing inside the womb but rather outwards. My consultant has suggested a myoectomy but he said he will only remove the 3cm fibroid which is growing into my cavity as he believes that is the culprit in preventing pregnancy.
I've read on other forums women TTC having all fibroids taken out so I'm confused why only 1 is being removed - wouldnt the large one just get bigger or cause me to miscarry if I did fall pregnant?. I asked consultant and he said its standard procedure that they leave the uterus as intact as possible for a woman who wants to concieve and removing all my 6 fibroids would risk excess bleeding and too much scar tissue. I can't find any person who has had a fibroid removed whilst others left in - any info or advice appreciated as my surgery is next month.
Please any input is welcomed as I'm completely stressed out with this and with other issues in my life which are making me indecisive
Thanks in advance x
