Hi ladies, well i had a myomectomy on Jan 30, 2010. I went into the operating room at 8:45am and woke up in recovery at 2:30pm. I was very scared, wondering why it took so long. I found out i was in surgery 5 hours because my doctor had a very difficult time removing the biggest fibroid. I was told i came very close to having a hysterectomy. My doctor told me she had to really take her time to get the fibroid out. She took out a total of 8 fibroids but left some really small ones, because she did not want to cut my uterus anymore. I am thankful i had the relationship i did with my doctor because she knew how bad i want to have a baby. My recovery is going on okay so far. Anyone have any tips on the recovery part. I will share more on my recovery later!!
