I am hoping to hear from women who have had a laproscopic hysterectomy or myomectomy to deal with fibroids. I am especially interested in knowing about recovery experiences and any longer term outcomes for pelvic pain and bladder/urinary issues. Recommendations for surgeons in New York City would be very appreciated.
Early 40s female with fibroids causing pelvic pain and urinary frequency due to pressure on bladder. I hoped to wait it out until menopause but symptoms are becoming difficult to deal with. Heavy bleeding is less of an issue.
I have had consultations with two surgeons who have suggested laproscopic myomectomy or hysterectomy. I have no plans for children and lean towards hysterectomy as one surgeon said recovery is about the same as for myomectomy when done laproscpically and that risks for complication are lower. I also like knowing that the fibroids can't return.
I am interested in hearing from women who have had either surgery, especially about recovery experiences and any longer term impacts on pelvic pain and bladder/urinary issues.
Recommendations for surgeons in New York City would be very appreciated. I am not 100% on board with either surgeon and still looking for recommendations. Thank you for any thoughts.
