Myomectomy Q & A

What is a myomectomy?

Myomectomy at Surgery of Tomorrow, LLC, is the surgical removal of uterine fibroids, common noncancerous growths that can appear in your uterus. Myomectomy can reduce unpleasant symptoms associated with uterine fibroids, such as pelvic pain and heavy menstrual bleeding, and your risk of complications.

Is a myomectomy right for me?

To find out if you’re a good candidate for a myomectomy, your Surgery of Tomorrow, LLC, provider reviews your medical history and symptoms. They complete a pelvic examination and might recommend blood tests, ultrasound, or other diagnostic testing procedures.

You might be a good candidate for the procedure if you experience unpleasant symptoms associated with fibroids, or you’d like to have children in the future, and fibroids interfere with fertility. 

How should I prepare for a myomectomy?

To get ready for a myomectomy, follow your surgeon’s instructions. Don’t eat or drink anything the morning of your surgery and stop taking certain medications if your gynecologist recommends it. Arrange for someone to drive you home after the procedure.

What should I expect during the procedure?

After you’re given anesthesia, you can expect the following during a myomectomy:

Laparoscopic myomectomy

Your surgeon makes tiny incisions in your lower abdominal region during laparoscopic myomectomy. They safely and effectively remove uterine fibroids using specialized tools and close the incisions. 

MyoSure® myomectomy

During a MyoSure myomectomy, your surgeon safely removes fibroids by inserting tiny instruments through your vagina without any incisions. 

Myomectomies might last 30-60 minutes, depending on the specific approach your surgeon uses. Afterward, you rest in a recovery area while the anesthesia wears off. You go home the same day as your surgery.

What happens after a myomectomy?

Have a friend or family member drive you home and follow all post-surgery instructions. Take medications as prescribed, eat healthy foods, and get plenty of rest. Expect some spotting for a few days or weeks. Avoid strenuous exercise, sexual activity, and heavy lifting until your doctor gives you the okay.

Don’t live with infertility, heavy bleeding, or pelvic pain associated with uterine fibroids when you don’t have to. Schedule an appointment with Surgery of Tomorrow, LLC, over the phone or online to find out if myomectomy is right for you.
