I had an appt with my gynecologist. Turns out I have fibroids very large bulky masses that are distorting and enlarging the uterus. My doctor told me I had the following two options
Abdominal myomectomy. If you have multiple fibroids, very large fibroids or very deep fibroids, your doctor may use an open abdominal surgical procedure to remove the fibroids or
Hysterectomy. This surgery — the removal of the uterus — remains the only proven permanent solution for uterine fibroids. But hysterectomy is major surgery. It ends your ability to bear children. Most women with uterine fibroids can choose to keep their ovaries.
I am going to get a second opinion to see if there are other options besides surgery. There should be right?
