I've posted a few times on here but I have not updated anyone on much- life has been crazy.
I have one pretty large 8 x 7 x 7 cm fibroid on the top of my uterus, partially embeded. My doctor told me I should be a candidate for the Laproscopic (robotic) myomectomy, which generally yields a faster recovery period than the open abdominal myomectomy. I go for an MRI tomorrow and a surgical consult on Jan 4th to discuss and confirm a plan with a surgeon.
I wanted to ask a few questions to those who have undergone this specific procedure:
From your experience, how long was your total recovery time?
Specifically, how long before you could return to work?
(I have an office job, its not strenuous work, but I want to know when I can expect to return from medical leave)
How long before you were able to exercise without limitations?
When did the pain start to subside for you?
And finally, this question is more of a vanity question but my stomach is protruding a bit from where this fibroid is sitting- I was wondering if anyone has experienced any "deflation" of the stomach after having their fibroid(s) removed? I wonder about loose skin/abdominal muscle structure etc.
Anyyyyyyy tips for recovery would be greatly appreciated too! This whole thing is so crazy for me. I've gotten a lot of encouragement on here but I definitely could use all the help I can get.
Thank you in advance!!!! and thank goodness for this site!!
