What is Myomectomy?

Myomectomy, sometimes also fibroidectomy, refers to the surgical removal of uterine fibroids. Fibroids are benign, noncancerous, growths that usually occur during childbearing years, but not necessarily. The severity of the symptoms depends on the size, location, and the number of fibroids that are present.

How Do I Prepare For Myomectomy Surgery?

There are some tests and preparations you will need to take to prepare you for Myomectomy surgery.

  • Typical tests include:
    • Saline Uterine Ultrasound – During this procedure saline is inserted into the uterus to allow the fibroids to show up more clearly on the ultrasound.
    • Complete Blood Count (CBC) – A CBC will be performed to ensure that your blood count and iron levels are sufficient for you to undergo surgery.
  • Additional Tests: Doctors may order additional tests depending on any pre-existing conditions and health history. Additional tests may include:
    • Electrocardiogram – Electrocardiograms are used to detect potential problems with the heart.
    • MRI – Magnetic Resonance Imaging may be used to get a clearer image of the internal organs to detect any conditions that could complicate surgery.
    • Pelvic Ultrasound – A pelvic ultrasound may be performed to detect any additional abnormalities or existing conditions in the reproduction organs.
  • Medications
    • If you are currently taking medications for other conditions, even if they are over-the-counter medications or vitamins, be sure to inform your doctor. Your doctor will inform you if you need to change the frequency of your existing medications or stop taking them completely prior to your surgery.
    • Your doctor may prescribe medications to shrink the fibroids prior to the surgery. This will make the fibroids easier to remove.
  • Eating
    • Stop eating or drinking by midnight the night prior to your surgery. Your doctor may provide additional instructions regarding what you can eat and drink and when.
  • Information
    • Be sure to ask your doctor any questions you have prior to your surgery. This will reduce any stress or anxiety you may feel regarding your surgery.

How Is Myomectomy Performed?

There are three different methods of performing fibroid removal surgery. The option that is best for you depends on the location of the fibroids, how many fibroids are present and the size of the fibroids. The types of myomectomy surgery are:

  • Abdominal Myomectomy – An abdominal Myomectomy is classified as major surgery and may be best for you if you have many or very large fibroids growing in your uterine wall. You will be placed under general anesthesia and will be asleep during the surgery. The surgeon will make an incision approximately three to four inches long in the lower abdomen to access the uterus and remove the fibroids. Longer incisions may be needed depending on the size and location of the fibroids. The uterus and skin are then stitched closed. Most patients spend two to three days in the hospital following an abdominal myomectomy.
  • Laparoscopic Myomectomy – Laparoscopic myomectomy may be better if you have smaller and fewer fibroids. During this procedure, you will be placed under general anesthesia. Four small incisions are made, approximately ½” each, at the belly button, bikini line, and near each hip. Carbon dioxide gas is then used to expand the abdominal cavity and a laparoscopy, an illuminated microscope, is inserted. The microscope allows the doctors to observe the uterus and other reproductive organs and to manipulate the instruments that are inserted into the other incisions to remove the fibroids. In many cases, this procedure is performed using a robotic arm controlled by the surgeon from a computer. Patients typically spend one day in the hospital before returning home.
  • Hysteroscopic Myomectomy – This type of myomectomy is performed to treat fibroids that bulge significantly into your uterine cavity (submucosal fibroids). Hysteroscopic Myomectomy does not require external incisions. You may be placed under either local or general anesthesia during the procedure. Once the procedure starts you will rest on your back with your feet in gynecology stirrups. A small telescope is inserted through the cervix into the uterus. The fluid will be inserted to part the walls of the uterus and the surgeon will “shave” off the fibroids using a wire loop. This surgery is performed on an outpatient basis. You will remain in the hospital for observation for a few hours but will typically go home the same day.

How Is The Recovery After Myomectomy Surgery?

The recovery time following myomectomy surgery depends on the type of myomectomy that is performed. Average recovery times are:

  • Abdominal Myomectomy – Most patients remain in the hospital for two to three days. Once released, there is an additional recovery time of approximately five weeks.
  • Laparoscopic Myomectomy – Typically, the patient only spends one night in the hospital following this procedure. The home recovery time will take about another three weeks.
  • Hysteroscopic Myomectomy – This is an outpatient procedure. Most patients return home the same day and require only a few days of rest to recover fully.

With all forms of myomectomy, there may be some discomfort following the surgery. Heavy weight lifting should be avoided until the incision is completely healed. Your doctor may prescribe medications to reduce the discomfort. Patients may also experience spotting for days, or even weeks, following the procedure. Consult your doctor to determine when it is safe to resume sexual activity and if you are trying to conceive when it is safe to resume trying.

What are the risks related to Myomectomy Surgery

All of the types of Myomectomy have some associated risks. Thoroughly discuss your options and future plans with your doctor to determine which option is best for you.

  • Abdominal Myomectomy

    • Blood loss during the procedure sometimes requiring transfusion.
    • C-section may be required for future births.
    • Infection may develop.
    • New fibroid growth may occur.
  • Laparoscopic Myomectomy

    • Injury to nearby organs.
    • Blood loss during the procedure sometimes requiring transfusion.
    • Weekend uterus (women who wish to get pregnant in the future should consider abdominal myomectomy).
    • New fibroid growth may occur.
  • Hysteroscopic Myomectomy

    • Infection
    • Excessive Bleeding
    • Damage to nearby organs
    • Scar tissue block fallopian tubes
    • Scar tissue in the fallopian tubes leading to fertility issues.
    • New fibroid growth may occur.

Regardless of the type of myomectomy you have, you should call your doctor immediately if you experience heavy bleeding, severe pain, breathing problems or fever.

Will Myomectomy affect future pregnancies?

Your ability to become pregnant in the future will depend on the extent of your condition, the type of myomectomy you have and if any complications develop. When more than six fibroids need to be removed the chance of becoming pregnant in the future is reduced.

There is also a possibility of the uterus being weakened by the surgery causing a risk of the uterus tearing during pregnancy or delivery. It is suggested that patients have a cesarean section for future deliveries. There is a small chance that scar tissue may develop making conception in the future difficult. 

Why should I go to India for Myomectomy surgery?

India has some of the best-equipped hospitals in the world. The facilities are held to exacting standards of cleanliness and maintenance. The doctors, nurses and supporting staff are among the most experienced and best-trained professionals in the field and equal or superior to their colleagues in the west.

One of the primary reasons so many people travel to India for this medical procedure is financial savings. Myomectomy in India is significantly lower than in western countries and unlike the US and UK packages that are all-inclusive are available reducing the risk of hidden and unexpected costs.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Myomectomy Surgery in India

Q. When can I leave the hospital after myomectomy surgery?

The duration of hospital stay after myomectomy depends on the type of surgery performed. Patients usually stay longer after abdominal myomectomy (two days) than in cases of laparoscopic or robotic myomectomy (overnight or no hospital stay). With hysteroscopic myomectomy, women can go home the same day after the procedure.

Q. What are the advantages of the laparoscopy technique over conventional procedures?

Laparoscopy and robotic techniques are minimally invasive methods that offer many benefits in comparison to laparotomy. Women who undergo laparoscopic or robotic myomectomy experience lower rates of complications, less blood loss, reduced hospital stays, faster recovery, and less risk of adhesion formation post-surgery.

Q. What can I expect after myomectomy?

Expected outcomes of myomectomy include improvement in the symptoms and fertility issues. Most women have relief from pelvic pain and excessive menstrual bleeding after the surgery. About 50% of women have reported having a successful pregnancy post myomectomy, especially after a laparoscopic procedure.

Q. When can I plan for pregnancy after my surgery?

It is generally suggested to wait for three to six months before trying to conceive. This time is required to allow the uterus to heal from the surgery.

Q. What is the other alternative for the treatment of uterine fibroids?

Treatment of uterine fibroids can be done with the following minimally invasive techniques:

Uterine artery embolization (UAE): In this method, specific particles are injected into the arteries of the uterus to limit the blood supply to the fibroid.

Radiofrequency volumetric thermal ablation (RVTA): In this ablation method, radiofrequency energy is used to ablate or destroy the fibroids with heat and shrink the blood vessels that supply them.

Endometrial ablation: This treatment involves the use of a specialized instrument that is inserted into the uterus. Then heat, microwave energy, hot water or electric current is used to destroy the uterine lining. It results in either menopause or reduction of menstrual flow.
