What You Can Expect Without a Myomectomy

Even if a myomectomy is recommended by your doctor, it is always your choice whether to have the surgery. However, it is important to understand the possible results of this decision.
Although no one can truly predict the outcome of your specific situation, it is possible that the current problems you are experiencing may get better, stay the same, or worsen. As a fibroid grows larger, there is a possibility that new symptoms will develop.
However, if you are going through menopause, or will be soon, your fibroid symptoms may get better or go away without surgery. The final decision to have or not have surgery rests with you, but all concerns related to this decision should be discussed with your doctor at length. Then you and your doctor can come up with a treatment method that best meets your needs and values.
