I was told I need a hysterectomy for a fibroid. I started off OK with hysterectomy, but the more I read about it, I decided to go with a myomectomy. Did a second visit to OB/GYN about it and doc wanted to make paperwork for surgery even more (with possibility of Fallopian tubes and ovaries removed) and this is making me want to run to a new doctor. I just want the fibroid removed. Doc really seems to prefer hysterectomy. The ultrasound said one 14x15 cm (5 mo. pregnancy size) fibroid.
Should I run to a new doc, or try to get the doctor to make the paperwork say 'myomectomy' on the paperwork? What I mean is should I trust this doc to stick to myomectomy since doc says they will do what I ask but keeps trying to get me to agree to more? Starting over seems overwhelming but I don't want to have a surgery I don't want.
