    healing from myomectomy?

    How long should it take for you to be totally pain free after an abdominal myomectomy? I am almost at 4 months and it still hurts like hell when I touch that area.

    Hi there, I have had a myomectomy / polypectomy in July this year. I have strong lower abdominal cramps that come and go during the month. I'm not smart enough to know if this is related to the op or not (lol). In fact more so than before the surgery when I think about it. I am also curious to know if it does grow back and what are the odds. Still waiting to fall pregnant.

    I had a myomectomy last May (slice and dice not lap) and fully recovered within about three weeks with no lasting side affects. At the time the one fibroid taking up valuable resources in my uterus was the only one I had. Over a year later I have five new fibroids, all outside the uterus and am trying to decide if it is worth removing them. My OBGYN is worried about one because it is 5cm, but I do not have any symptoms other than some occasional heaviness in the pelvic area. I think once you have a fibroid you are prone to have more, unfortunately.
