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.

I have a degenerating fibroid which has caused spotting once

I have a degenerating fibroid which has caused spotting once a year for two years. My gynecologist is recommending a myomectomy even though I have no other symptoms. My primary care physician says if I am going to have surgery why not just have a hysterectomy. What do you think?

I recently turned 36 years old. I have had cramps during my

I recently turned 36 years old. I have had cramps during my menstruation and some missed periods. I can manage the cramps with ibuprofen. I had a pelvic ultrasound. This was the report handed to me. What does it mean? "A multifibroid uterus is identified,which measures 10.1 cm long x 4.8 cm AP x 5.8 cm transverse. Within the right fundus of the uterus is a 2.8 x 2.3 x 2.4 cm transmural fibroid. Within the midline fundus is a 5.0 x 6.4 x 6.6 cm fibroid, which appears to approximate the endometrium, consistentwith a submucosal location. The endometrial echo stripe is normal in appearance and measures 11 mm in AP dimension. The right ovary measures 2.0 x 2.6 x 1.8 cm and is unremarkable in appearance. The left ovary measures 3.3 x 4.8 x 2.1 cm and contains a dominantfollicle. There is a small amount of free fluid in the cul-de-sac. There are no adnexal masses. Limited ultrasound of the kidneys demonstrates no hydronephrosis Impression: (1) Fibroid uterus including a 5.0 x 6.4 x 6.6 cm fibroid, which appears to approximatethe endometrium, consistent with a submucosal location. (2) normal ovaries." What does this mean? I understand it means I have fibroids. Does it mean anything else? How many fibroids do I have? How large? Is this size normal or something to cause huge concern?My main concerns is whether this would cause complications with getting pregnant? If so, how much harder would it be to get pregant with this type of fibroid? 25 % or 50% more difficult?

Hi,I did myomectomy twice, and the last one was really bad. The doctor was almost giving up and ready to take out my uterus. After 7 hours surgery he managed to removed more than 60 fibroids and keep my uterus. However, he said that the uterus is so damaged, lots of cicatrix are present.He said that I should not have children, but after 8 months of no period, my period came. However, the colour is very very dark, lasted about 3-7 days. There was no pain and regular cycle.a month before my period is almost non existent, only very little spot, and this month I missed my period.please let me know what this mean. I feel wet all the time, but there is nothing. (I'm not sexually active). Thank you
