Take Out The Pain
For many women, uterine fibroids is a term that has become a part of their lexicon, peppering their medical records with a laundry list of painful symptoms that complicate their lives and limit their hope of having a family. It could seem a hopeless condition, one whose solution might require an all-or-nothing approach; but for many women, relief from this urogynecological issue is found in the Myomectomy Procedure.
A Clear Cut Treatment
Though it is only one of several options explored in the treatment of women with fibroids, myomectomy is the preferred approach for most physicians specializing in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery, simply for the reason that it removes fibroids while leaving the uterus intact and fully functional, often increasing the likelihood of pregnancy despite the fact that the fear of infertility was once all too real.
There are many benefits to myomectomy, including:
- Decreased bleeding
- Decreased pelvic pain
- Increased odds of pregnancy
Terms Of Termination
Myomectomy can be performed with three methods of surgery, though which method will be most effective depends greatly on the size, location, and the number of fibroids. These methods include:
- Hysteroscopy, which is used when the fibroids are located on the inner wall of the uterus but have not actually grown into the wall of the uterus
- Laparoscopy, which removes smaller fibroids that have grown on the outside of the uterus
- Laparotomy, which is used in cases where there are many fibroids present or when the fibroids are large or have grown into the uterine wall
Naturally, each of these three surgical types of the myomectomy procedure poses their own risks, just as they each have their own unique requirements for recovery time; and women whose diagnosis of fibroid uterus requires surgery will be given the chance to discuss any concerns they may have with their doctors so that they are fully informed about what to expect before, during, and after their procedure.
