Would I be able to get a hysterectomy and abortion at the same time?JA: Have you been keeping a personal medical record?Customer: ExplainJA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: Only that I have hypothyroidism

I know I'm anemic my hemoglobin or hematocrit is 9.6 I'm on

I know I'm anemic my hemoglobin or hematocrit is 9.6 I'm on my period today I'm 54 surprisingly and still get heavy periods. I have a very large Fibroid full uterus. About 24 to 26 week in size I am finally surrendering and will have a robotic hysterectomy or myomectomy next week and I'm horrified. 2 questions. 1 I get random dizziness that can last a couple hours. Today I was talking to someone much shorter than myself looking down for a extended period and I felt like I was on a rocking boat I tried to walk around and shake it off but it lasted a couple hours. I've had this happen a few times some times it's more like spinning but today it was like rocking Any ideas way looking down and listening in conversation could start me to feel dizzy? 2. Is a myomectomy or hysterectomy much different for someone my age?

My wife is due in (40 weeks) two days but she had a myomectomy

My wife is due in (40 weeks) two days but she had a myomectomy three years ago. I don't have a doctor.So, should I go to the ER for them to do a c-section or should I just wait until she goes into labor?.... Some doctors was saying that she do a c- section because she had a myomectomy....If I go to the ER, when are they going to do the c-sections? Once again... this week will make 40 weeks.She has no pain. No problems, no signs of going into labor... I'm not sure if she will go into labor.Just some pressure above her tommy which makes it hard for her to breathe at times...

My question is concerning vaginal birth after a myomectomy.

Hi,My question is concerning vaginal birth after a myomectomy. I had a myomectomy in April 2013. I got pregnant in July 2015 through IVF. I am now 37 weeks pregnant. All the doctors I've seen tell me that I will have to have a c-section. But I'm not too eager to have major surgery again. So I wanted to know if a vaginal birth is at all possible and what are the chances of my uterus rupturing? The last Doctor I saw also said that the c-section was supposed to be scheduled since last week and that I should schedule one asap. So I also wanted to know what would happen if I don't schedule one and wait until I go into labor or my water breaks?Thanks in advance for your answer.
