Before undergoing a myomectomy, you must have a pre-operative visit with your healthcare provider. Here is what you can expect during the pre-operative visit for myomectomy.
Your healthcare provider will take your detailed medical history, including the history of previous surgeries, medical conditions, allergies and current medications. They will perform a physical examination to evaluate your overall health. They may also perform a pelvic exam to assess the size and location of your fibroids.
You must undergo blood tests to check for blood type, complete blood count (CBC) and electrolyte levels. These tests help to ensure you are not suffering from underlying medical conditions like diabetes and hypertension. These systemic health conditions could increase your risk of complications.
Your healthcare provider may ask for imaging examinations such as an ultrasound, MRI or CT scan. These scans can evaluate the size, location and number of fibroids. It helps your surgeon determine the best surgical approach for your case.
Your healthcare provider will review the medications you are currently consuming. They may recommend you stop taking medications before the surgery, such as blood thinners, to reduce the risk of bleeding during the procedure. The doctor may prescribe medications to manage pain or prevent infection post-surgery.
Your healthcare provider will provide detailed instructions on preparation for the surgery, dietary limitations, medication restrictions and pre-operative cleansing procedures. They will also advise you to arrange for someone to drive you to and from the hospital.
We perform myomectomy using open surgery or minimally invasive techniques such as laparoscopy or hysteroscopy. The choice depends on the size of fibroids, number and location.
Like any surgery, myomectomy has risks such as bleeding, infection, damage to adjacent organs and anaesthesia-related complications.
There is also a small risk of future fibroid growth and recurrence if you have multiple or large fibroids. Take follow-up appointments regularly with your doctor to monitor for signs of recurrence.
