Fibroids have been a huge problem to me for the past 18 months if not longer. I have one on the outside of my uterus on a stalk bigger than a grapefruit and a 2cm one inside my uterus. My surgeon says he is going to perform a myomectomy and remove the other one vaginally. I am concerned because I have a blood disorder called neutropenia and am at higher risk of infection. I think there are other treatments I'd like to try before being opened up. For example shrinking the big one and removing it by a laparoscopy or having ultrasound therapy. I am also at higher risk of blood clots so think a myomectomy should be a last resort. I was wondering if anyone had theirs removed as large as mine a different way other than a myomectomy? Maybe I'm worrying too much but I've had the operation postponed twice and it's having a big impact on my personal life and want them sorted! Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
