The surgeon will also involve post-operative instructions such as stay in the hospital, medications, and lifestyle changes patients need to make.

What happens during the myomectomy surgery?

The myomectomy procedure differs depending on the type of myomectomy the patient is having:

Abdominal myomectomy

During this surgical type, the patient is put under general anaesthesia. The surgeon will first begin with making an incision through the lower abdomen into the female's uterus. After the incision is made, the surgeon will immediately initiate the process of removing fibroids from the uterine wall. Lastly, the uterine muscle is stitched back. Most females, after spending one to three days in the hospital, can go home. 

Laparoscopic myomectomy

After giving anaesthesia to the patient, the surgeon will begin making four small incisions. Once the incisions are made, a device named laparoscope is placed into one of the incisions. A thin, lighted tube, laparoscope is inserted into one of the incisions. The surgeon then with the help of a device will begin cutting fibroids into small pieces. Once the surgery is complete, all instruments are removed and the incisions are closed. It requires one night stay in the hospital to recover. 

Hysteroscopic myomectomy

Hysteroscopic myomectomy is initiated by placing a local anaesthesia or general anaesthetic during the procedure. The surgeon begins with placing a thin and lighted scope through the vagina and cervix into the uterus. Nex, the liquid is placed into the uterus to broaden the vagina to view fibroids. Ending the procedure, the surgeon involves using a wire loop for shaving off fibroids pieces and then through liquid the fibroid pieces are washed out. The patient can go home the same day. 

What is the recovery like after myomectomy? 

After myomectomy procedure is done, the recovery procedure entirely depends on the type of surgery and the patient’s ability to recover. After the surgery is done, the doctor prescribes medications and certain lifestyle changes that should be followed. In abdominal myomectomy procedure, the recovery time takes around six weeks to recover. In laparoscopy surgery, the recovery period is the same day, or the surgeon might ask the patient to spend a night to monitor the recovery. Lastly, in hysteroscopic type, the recovery time is the same day.
