Fibroids and pregnancy

Hi there,
I am almost 39 wks pregnant and my gynae discovered a fibroid in my uterus. He says it is harmless to baby, but may need to be cut out at a later stage. I was also told that my pelvis is rather small and will struggle with natural birth.
Therefore if I am to have a caesar,can they perform the op to remove the fibroid(s) at the same time? Or is this unadvisable due to recovery?
Thank youfor your help.

Depends on if your gynae feels comfortable to do it at the same time. It can be done.
