I have had an open Myomectormy 3 weeks ago. I must say I am so glad I decided to go for the operation. I had no idea what so ever that I had fibroids. I thought that I had IBS. No bleeding, periods fine, no pain but constantly bloated ,always tired, nauseous so couldn't eat, and always letting out wind. I was not a big girl but a bit overweight and not really healthy eater so I changed my diet lost weight but my belly was still huge. After going to my Doctor he referred me to have an MRI. It turned out that I had a external17cm X10cm fibroid on a 3cm stalk filling up my tummy. I was so shocked.The operation is very painful but I have my life back.
i am doing better everyday. I did not have a historectomy altough it was recommended. I made it very clear to the surgeon that that would be a a last resort for me.
For anyone who is not sure if they should go for the op. I can say that I feel so much better, all symptoms gone, flat belly and my life back.
