Wound Breakdown Following a Myomectomy

Wound breakdown following a myomectomy can occur when some or all of the skin and tissue layers of your wound do not grow back together correctly. This can occur for a number of reasons, and can affect different types of people, including those who have:
  • Severe swelling
  • Infections
  • Poor healing ability.
The treatment of the wound breakdown will vary, depending on the individual situation. In some instances, the wound can be bandaged daily until it heals.
It may take up to several months for the complete wound separation to heal. Other times, surgery is necessary to repair it. A wound breakdown following a myomectomy could result in an irregular or noticeable scar. If wound breakdown does occur, your doctor will discuss the treatment options and expected outcomes with you.
