Fundal Fibroid

Posted , 7 users are following.

Does anybody know if a large fibroid on the fundus can be removed by hysteroscopy or would it need to be by laparoscopy?

    Hi Helen, I'm not sure what you mean by 'fundus' - do you mean the 'uterus' i.e. the womb?    There are 3 types of fibroids (Intramural, subserosal and submucosal) due to where they are positioned within or on the uterus. Submucosal ones within the womb are the only ones I believe that can be removed by hysteroscopy. They would also need to be under a certain size.  You say large so unless it sounds like it may not be possible.      It would depend which type of fibroid. If it is on the outside ( subserosal) or within the walls (intramural) then these cannot be removed by hysteroscopy as far as I am aware. Only submucosal ones within the inside of the womb under a certain size.    I hope that helps.  S

    DON'T OPERATE!I'm telling you. I wish I had listened when I was told. Go online and find herb sistah. Go to her site and order womb detox. It saved my life.

    Well depending where it's at you might have to get an open myomectomy. I was told if they couldn't reach one that was at the back or whatever that they would have to do the open myomectomy😒 which they did. I was hoping to get laparoscopic myomectomy . I had Intramural, subserosal and submucosal they were every where😨. Goodluck🙄
