About Myomectomy

This information is intended for general information only and should not be considered as medical advice on the part of Health-Tourism.com. Any decision on medical treatments, after-care or recovery should be done solely upon proper consultation and advice of a qualified physician.

What is Myomectomy?
Myomectomy is a surgical procedure in which fibroids are removed from the uterus wall.

Gonadotropin Releasing Hormone Analogue (GnRH-a) therapy may be used before myomectomy to reduce the size of the fibroids. This helps in reducing blood loss during a surgery. The GnRH-a therapy decreases the estrogen amounts in the body.

What are the different methods of performing Myomectomy?
Myomectomy may be performed by various surgical methods; choosing the method depends on the size, number and location of the fibroids.

  • Hysteroscopy
    Fibroids that are located on the inner wall of the uterus but have not grown deep into the wall of the uterus is removed by hysteroscopy. A hysteroscope is inserted through the cervix into the uterus and the fibroids are removed.
  • Laparoscopy
    Fibroids that measure approximately 2 inches and are located outside the uterus is removed by laparoscopy. This method uses a laparoscope which is inserted through a small abdominal incision and the fibroids are located and removed.
  • Laparotomy
    Fibroids that are large in size or those that have grown deep into the wall of the uterus are removed by laparotomy. This is the traditional method of performing a myomectomy. During a laparotomy, a full abdominal incision is made horizontally or vertically. A few incisions are made in the muscles of the uterus and the fibroid is removed.

How to prepare for Myomectomy?
  • The patient may be required to go through a hormone treatment 2 to 6 months before myomectomy to reduce the size of the fibroids.
  • The patient needs to go through a thorough physical examination.
  • The doctor should be informed if the patient is:
    • Taking any medication
    • Allergic to any medication
    • Treated for any pelvic, uterine, cervical or vaginal infection 6 weeks prior to the procedure.
    • Suffering from heart or lung ailments
    • Pregnant
  • Arrangements should be made for someone to drive the patient home.

Days admitted : - Hysteroscopy: is done as an outpatient procedure.
- Laparoscopy: may be done as an outpatient procedure. However, sometimes patients may require a stay of 1 day in the hospital.
- Laparotomy: 1 to 4 days at the hospital

Anesthesia : General Anesthesia

Recovery : - Patients will be able to recover in a couple of weeks after myomectomy using laparoscopy and hysteroscopy.
- Patients who have had a laparotomy may need 4 to 6 weeks to recover.
- Patients’ symptoms of bleeding and pain caused by fibroids are cured after myomectomy.
- In many cases of patients with the problem of infertility, chances of pregnancy are known to be improved after myomectomy.

Risks : Risks involved in myomectomy are rare. They include:
- Infection
- Bleeding
- Uterine wall weakening
- Risks of anesthesia
- Severe bleeding that may lead to the removal of the whole uterus
- Uterine scarring may lead to infertility
- Rupture of uterine scars during pregnancy and delivery

After care : - The patient should follow the doctor’s instructions carefully.
- Patients trying to get pregnant may try to conceive 4 to 6 months after myomectomy because fibroids may grow back later.
- Patients may be required to do a hysterosalpingogram 4 months after myomectomy.
