Common Conditions

Myomectomy is performed to treat uterine fibroids, which are noncancerous growths that develop in the uterus. Fibroids can cause heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain or pressure, urinary symptoms, and fertility issues. Diagnostic evaluations, including pelvic examinations, ultrasound imaging, and sometimes additional imaging techniques, help identify the size, location, and number of fibroids, allowing for appropriate treatment planning.

Benefits and Potential Outcomes

Myomectomy offers several benefits to women’s health and well-being. By removing uterine fibroids, it can alleviate symptoms such as heavy bleeding, pelvic pain, and pressure, improving overall quality of life. Additionally, myomectomy preserves the uterus, making it a suitable option for women who desire to maintain fertility and have future pregnancies. The potential outcomes include symptom relief, improved reproductive health, and enhanced emotional well-being.

Myomectomy Procedure

(Before, During and After)

Before:

Before myomectomy, an initial consultation with Dr. Adeeb AlShahrour at the Women’s Health Center of Chicago is necessary. During this consultation, your medical history, symptoms, and diagnostic findings will be thoroughly assessed. Dr. AlShahrour will discuss the procedure, potential risks, benefits, and alternative treatment options. Pre-operative evaluations, including blood tests and imaging studies, may be performed to ensure your readiness for surgery.

During:

Myomectomy is typically performed under general anesthesia in a hospital setting. The surgical approach can vary depending on the size, number, and location of the fibroids, as well as other individual factors. The options include traditional open surgery, laparoscopic myomectomy, or robotic-assisted myomectomy. During the procedure, Dr. AlShahrour will carefully remove the fibroids while preserving the healthy surrounding tissue. The specific technique will be determined based on your unique circumstances.

After:

Following myomectomy, you will be monitored in a recovery area before being transferred to a hospital room. Pain management measures will be in place to ensure your comfort. It is normal to experience some abdominal discomfort, fatigue, and mild vaginal bleeding for a few days to weeks after the procedure. Dr. AlShahrour will provide post-operative instructions, including pain management recommendations, activity restrictions, and any necessary follow-up appointments.

FAQ

Myomectomy can actually improve fertility in women with uterine fibroids. By removing the fibroids while preserving the uterus, myomectomy can enhance the chances of successful conception and pregnancy. However, individual factors and the extent of fibroid involvement may influence fertility outcomes. Dr. AlShahrour can provide personalized guidance based on your specific situation.

Myomectomy aims to remove fibroids from the uterus, but the extent of fibroid removal depends on the size, number, and location of the fibroids, as well as individual factors. While myomectomy can significantly reduce symptoms and improve fertility, it may not eliminate all fibroids. Dr. AlShahrour will discuss the expected outcomes based on your unique circumstances.

The recovery time can vary depending on the surgical approach and individual factors. Generally, women can expect a recovery period of several weeks, during which it is essential to rest, follow post-operative instructions, and gradually increase activity levels. Dr. AlShahrour will provide personalized recovery guidelines and monitor your progress.

While myomectomy removes existing fibroids, new fibroids can develop in the future. The likelihood of fibroid recurrence depends on various factors, including the patient's age, the number of fibroids removed, and the size and location of the initial fibroids. Regular follow-up appointments with Dr. AlShahrour can help monitor your condition and address any concerns.

Depending on the size, number, and location of the fibroids, alternative treatment options for fibroids may include medication to manage symptoms, uterine artery embolization (UAE) to shrink the fibroids, or focused ultrasound surgery (FUS) to destroy the fibroids. Dr. AlShahrour will evaluate your specific condition and discuss the most appropriate treatment options for you.

Myomectomy can result in small incision scars, the size and location of which depend on the surgical approach used. For laparoscopic or robotic-assisted myomectomy, the incisions are typically small and strategically placed to minimize scarring. Over time, the scars tend to fade and become less noticeable.
