Sometimes, during myomectomy surgery
, problems come up that were not expected. If this happens, your doctor might need to change your planned surgery to something more serious. This may mean that your abdomen will have a bigger incision in it. If your life is in danger, the abdominal surgery will help the doctor see where the problems are and try to fix them. This does not happen often, but you and your family should be aware of the possibility of your myomectomy
turning into a more complicated abdominal surgery.
