Hi,

I am age 33 years and have been diagnosed with 3 large fibroids measuring 10.5 X 8.1 cms(right side), 7.4 X 7.2 cms (left side) and 5.4 x 4.6 cms ( in the midline). The doc says they are mostly intramural (in the wall) but he can't be 100% sure. I am still planning to have children. The only symptoms is thar I have is heaviness in the belly, weakness and constipation.

Uterus – 9.6 X 5.6 X 7.2 cms
Right ovary normal (6.1 ccs)
Left ovary not visualized (Due to fibroid)
No solid or cystic lesion seen
Both kidneys are normal

Recommendation – Myomectomy (non laproscopically) as

Lesser chances of them returning with this method
Since there are three large ones, laproscopically it becomes a complex removal and is easier for uterine wall repair when done non laproscopially.

I wish to avoid a wrong diagnosis and would opt for the laproscopic way if I had the choice.

Please advise

Thanks
