Just Had A Myomectomy...


I am a 40 year old woman who just had this surgery in hopes of having my first child soon. The surgery took place 11/28/12. The surgery went well and I am now at home. My doctor removed 14 fibroids 2 the size of a large grapefruits. The worst part for me was the nausea I had 2 days after. Other then that, the pain wasn't that bad at all. I have just started my period which is on time, and I must say the bleeding is no where near as bad. I'm 3 weeks into my recovery. Everybody's body is different but you will definitely need that 4 to 6 weeks. I would suggest this surgery to any women who is suffering from painful periods, a lot of blood loss, pressure and painful intercourse. Don't let these doctor's talk you into a hysterectomy if you don't need one. The fibroids could come back, so if you are planning on having a baby the doctor suggest getting pregnant within the next 6 months. If you are in Chicago look up Dr. Sonya Thomas.. P.S... I asked her did she think I was crazy for wanting to have a baby at 40? She stated no, especially since she just has her first 2 at 40 and 41 and she had the same surgery done~ Be blessed!
