It is very important that your doctor knows about your desires for having future children before the surgery.
During the myomectomy, your doctor will attempt to remove all fibroids that are found. If the fibroids are too difficult to remove, or if they are too close to vital organs, such as your bowel or urinary tubes, they may be left in place.
If there is excessive bleeding during the surgery, a hysterectomy or complete removal of the uterus may need to be performed to save your life. In the case that your fibroids are too difficult to remove safely, you will need to discuss with your doctor and decide ahead of time whether you would prefer to have a hysterectomy, or to leave the fibroids as they are.
