For those of you that didn't see my previous post, I'm having open myomectomy in a few weeks for multiple fibroids; one is fairly large (the size of a large grapefruit) and I'm really freaking out and so scared. I've had some lovely reassuring comments on here which have calmed my nerves a little. However I was wondering how many of you ladies have had open myomectomy surgery and how did it go? I worry about the silliest and craziest things thanks to reading things on the internet; like bleeding severely and uncontrollably during surgery and potentially ending up having the uterus removed altogether. Although I hear that this is highly unlikely but who knows with these things? I want to have children in a couple of years by the way.
For those of you who have had open myomectomy how did your surgery go from start to end, so from day of surgery to healing?? Did anyone loose a lot of blood during surgery, did you experience heavy bleeding after? Or did anyone have a really straightforward surgery for multiple fibroids and comfortable healing? Also has anyone been experiencing any pain (caused by adhesions) six months or so post open myomectomy?
I'm trying to find out as much as possible about other people's experience so that I can have an idea of what to expect. Although I appreciate that the outcome of surgery is different for everyone. Looking forward to your responses.......
