    Hello, I don't think is normal for your tummy to be read or to be in pain as the laparoscopic myomectomy is a minimum invasion procedure. Was it done private or public?

    i have had a laparoscopic myomectomy 2 weeks ago, to remove 4 fibroids, biggest one 7cm and I have no pain at all, slightly discomfort when I sneeze or cough and is not red, the cuts are healing quite well. I have my done privately at a hospital in Romania, called Wellborn Hospital and I am very happy with the results. My advise is to check with the gynaecologist. Wish you all the best with your recovery.

      Hi Helen how bigs are your fibroids? I have had 4 removed via laparoscopic myomectomy the biggest one was 7cm. In terms of prices was very reasonable price starting from 1000 pounds and all the doctors speak English plus other European languages, was easier for them to read my medical records from here. They will book you in whenever you are available, I told them when I can do it as I was on annual leave and in about a month after I contacted the doctor, I had mine done. He arranged everything for me. All went well, no pain, no bleeding and my fertility hasn't been affected. Good luck with yours, hope you will fix it, my advise is to solve it asap as you may know, they do grow faster which makes your options a bit difficult.

      Hi Helen, have you checked your outbox to see if the emails are there? I have just checked mine as I was waiting on a replay and it turned out that the email I have sent a week ago was actually in my outbox folder, which means that it hasn't been sent and was stored only. I think that Microsoft sometimes saves emails that are being sent to new recipients to the outbox. I have resent it again from the outbox folder and when I have checked my sent emails it shown that was sent. Check your sent and outbox folders.

    * sorry meant to say swollen. Like I said I am in no pain, my tummy is not swollen and I haven't had yet my period. I think the period will be painful for most women for a couple of months after the operation.
