Procedure of fibroid ablative procedures is usually done in the hospital with an overnight stay after the procedure. The patient is sedated and very sleepy during the procedure. The uterine arteries are most easily accessed from the femoral artery, which is at the crease at the top of the leg as shown in the figure.

I do not know much about Fibroids, but I know it enough that this is a health issue that concerns most of my elder female relatives. I am in my 20s; not the most common age and I would like to know about the prevention of getting one. It is always better to prevent it before you have it than treating when you have it. I have heard about eating right and exercise more, but do people have it check out once a while just to be sure? If so, how would I call it? Also, what are the symptom of having it?

Thanks and hope to hear from you

I am in the same situation. My husband and I are ready to have children, but due to the size of my uterus (19cm - 5 large fibroids and various small ones) I have not been happy with what I am hearing from various gyn's. I am actually a bit upset about the whole situation, because when I ws first diagnosed, I was told to watch and wait to see what will happen. The a couple years later I was told I had to have a hysterectomy or myomectomy-which may result to hysterectomy if there is too much blood loss. So now I am 31 and can not do any of the new minimally evasive procedures, ex. Davenci robotic assisted procedure or laproscopic procedure, because I have waited and now my fibroids are very large and has distorted my uterus. I do have one more facility to research the female alternative sugery with lasers in California (Dr. Junco) . I am waiting to see if any one can actually speak on this procedure, because it is suppose to be a less evesive procedure compared to the myomectomy. Lasers are used to cut for minimal bloodloss (this is why the myomectomy is so risky for someone like me because the sugery is long and blood loss will occur) which means a higher chance of no transfusion or hysterectomy. They state they also use something to prevent from adhesions. I do not know if this information is reliable, I have researched it, but I want to be sure before I go across the US to have a extensive procedure like this done. I wish you well and I hope you have a very successful turn out.

I just wanted to encourage those of you with fibroids who want to have children. About 12 years ago, my husband and I were unable to conceive because of fibroids (large size and number of fibroids). I found an infertility specialist that had a lot of experience in performing myomectomies. The surgery was successful and we have 2 children now, ages 10 and 7. My fibroids have returned, and since we are finished having children, I am planning on having UFE to avoid another major surgery. DO NOT JUST ACCEPT HYSTERECTOMY AS YOUR OPTION!!! EXPLORE MYOMECTOMY TO PRESERVE YOUR FERTILITY!!!

Dear Anonymous I believe I trust my doctor. He has a great reputation and he is very comforting and upbeat about the situation. But, can a person ever really be sure about their doctor? My last doctor OBGYN was supposed to be good too and I had three miscarriages and he never suggested surgery for the fibroids, which he found after my first miscarriage- his attitude was- it is mother nature taking it's course!!!!! My current doctor is a specialist in the reproductive field. When I was having an ultrasound done - the technician said to me - if I had uterine fibroids and wanted to have children your doctor would be the person I would have do the surgery ( he is the best). So that is very comforting. I guess it is in the hands of someone more powerful then even the doctor, God will decide what he wants for me. Thank you so much your words of encouragement did really brighten my day. Thank you - Julie

Dear Annonymous: Thank you so much for your words of encouragment. You have a fantastic attitude. I'm sorry to hear you are going through the same thing. I would not wish this anguish on my worst enemy, because it is very hearbreaking. But, I'm going to try and have your attitude and hopefully everything will turn out fine. Good luck to you and you will be in my thoughts and prayers. Julie-

I'm sorry to hear you have these horrible fibroids too!!! I will let you know how the surgery turns out. I'm trying to stay positive and think only that good things will come out of this. Thank you so much for thinking about me. I will think about you too and pray that we both recover and have beautiful children some day. Again, I will let you know how the surgery turns out. Thanks - Julie

Julie: You are going to be great! So much of beating this health crisis is keeping your attitude up. I understand the emotional pain of it all and urge you to take long walks and take moments where you are just enjoying the quiet around you. I'm 28 years old and while I was diagnosed with fibroids a year ago on the outside of my uterus it wasn't until this past summer that they have grown so large they need to operate. I am getting married in March and I can totally empathize with the thoughts that go through your head about loosing your uterus. I'm scheduled for surgery next Tuesday and I panic when I think that I could be getting married without a uterus, or that the family I have always dreamed about is now not going to happen. All I have to say is that it causes STRESS. So rather than dealing with the what if's... take the stress out of your life. 99% of what we worry about will never happen. keep your chin up. As long as you are comfortable with your Doctor, you are going to be in great hands! Have you found someone that you 100% trust? Good luck, I'll be keeping you in my thoughts!

I am 27yrs old and just found out I have fibroids. I don't have any children, we were just starting to think about having them when I started having frequent periods. Not heavy, and not painful, just frequent, like every 7-14 days. I am definetly curious on how your surgery turns out. I work in surgery, but it is still my biggest fear, because I know the what if's. My doctor has suggested a hysteroscopy first, for a better look at what were dealing with. Please let us know how your surgery turns out

The back pain is bad. Every month during my cycle, I'm bed bound for the first two days. Thank you for your thoughts.
