Fibroid Removal Surgery

Fibroid Removal Surgery

Uterine Fibroids:

Fibroids in the uterus, sometimes called leiomyomas, are benign growths that form inside the uterine lining. These growths can range in size from tiny nodules like the size of a pea to enormous, obtrusive masses. A lot of women experience fibroids during their reproductive years and they are extremely prevalent with estimates indicating that 20–40% of women who are in reproductive age may experience fibroids.

When Is Surgery Required for Fibroid Removal?

Myomectomy, commonly known as the procedure to remove fibroids, is carried out in a number of circumstances:

  • Symptomatic Fibroids: Surgery may be advised if fibroids result in substantial symptoms including excessive menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, pressure, or urinary issues
  • Fibroids can occasionally interfere with conception or pregnancy-related issues, such as an increased chance of miscarriage or preterm labour. In certain circumstances, surgical removal might be indicated
  • Large fibroids or rapidly grown fibroids can cause discomfort and even strain on nearby organs if they expand quickly or significantly. Surgery can be necessary to treat the symptoms and stop further problems

Getting ready for Fibroid Removal Surgery

You will have a complete evaluation with your gynaecologist prior to having fibroid removal surgery. The size, position, and number of fibroids will normally be determined by a thorough medical history, a physical examination, and imaging tests like an MRI or ultrasound.

Your gynaecologist will talk to you about the process and answer any worries or inquiries you might have. Any drugs you are taking, allergies, and previous procedures must be disclosed to your doctor.

The Procedure

There are numerous methods for doing fibroids removal surgery, including:

  • Myomectomy of the abdomen: The classic method entails creating an abdominal incision to gain access to the uterus. It is frequently advised when several fibroids need to be removed or when the fibroids are larger in size
  • Laparoscopic myomectomy: This minimally invasive procedure involves making a few tiny incisions in the belly to insert a laparoscope, which is a tiny, illuminated tube with a camera, and other specialized surgical tools. In comparison to abdominal myomectomy, laparoscopic myomectomy promises a quicker recovery and fewer scarring
  • Hysteroscopic myomectomy: A hysteroscope which is a thin, illuminated device, is used to remove fibroids from the uterine cavity through the vagina and cervix. Smaller fibroids can be treated by Hysteroscopic myomectomy, which also has a quicker recovery period

Care after surgery and follow-up

You will require some recovery time following fibroid excision surgery to become well. Depending on the surgical procedure utilized and your unique needs, your gynaecologist will provide you with detailed instructions. The following are some general principles:

  • Pain control: Prescription drugs will be given to you to aid with any post-operative pain or discomfort
  • Physical activity: To encourage healing, you may need to start out by restricting your physical activity and avoiding heavy lifting. As your doctor has instructed, you can gradually return to your regular schedule
  • Regular follow-up visits will be scheduled to keep tabs on your development, evaluate how well the incision(s) have healed, and address any issues or queries you may have

Fibroid Removal Surgery Indications

Even though not all fibroids require surgery, the following symptoms could indicate that it is necessary:

  • Severe or Prolonged Symptoms: If your quality of life is considerably impacted by fibroid-related symptoms such as heavy and extremely painful bleeding, pelvic pressure etc. Surgery may be advised if conservative therapies have failed to bring relief
  • Myomectomy may increase your chances of conceiving or ensure a safer pregnancy when fibroids interfere with fertility or cause difficulties during pregnancy
  • Surgery could be required to relieve symptoms and stop further consequences if fibroids grow quickly or become large enough to push on organs or cause discomfort
