Hysterectomy with fibroids
Hi all. I'm new to this forum -- thanks to everyone for contributing. It's so great to realize I'm not alone.
I have an almost fist-sized fibroid growing through the wall of my uterus and am planning a hysterectomy next month. Does anyone have any experience with these circumstances, and can you tell me if they ended up being able to do the LAVH (laparascopically assisted vaginal hysterectomy -- drag it out through the vagina) or if they had to do the abdominal incision for yours?
Does anyone have any advice/old wives' tales on how I might shrink this fibroid in the coming weeks?
