uterine fibroid surgery

  1. I have to have several uterine fibroids removed and the MD told me I would have to be away for 6 weeks. Is this normal or customary? Please get back to me.

    My doctor removed my uterine fibroids with laparoscopic surgery. I missed 2 days of work.

    the MD stated mines were large to remove that way and would most likely have to do it abdominally.

    A few years ago I had a myomectomy too. It was major, hip to hip laparotomy and recover was similar to a c-section. Seems I was up and around at about 4 weeks. 6 weeks seems conservative.

    If you've had your surgery by now - (this post is late) I hope you are doing well!
