An abdominal myomectomy is a procedure that is used to remove abnormal muscular growths, called uterine fibroids, from the uterus and improve fibroid symptoms. Although the results of a myomectomy
can vary, most women experience some improvement in their symptoms after the surgery.
Preparing for the Procedure
Myomectomy is usually performed on an inpatient basis, which means that you will stay in the hospital after the procedure. For your particular situation, you will be given specific instructions as to where and when to arrive at the medical facility, how to prepare for your myomectomy, and what to expect the day of and the days following your surgery.
Types of Anesthesia Used for a Myomectomy
Anesthesia is used to eliminate the pain felt during a myomectomy. The two most common types of myomectomy anesthesia used are spinal and general anesthesia.
