Our expert says:
In some cases they can remove just the fibroid, but if you are not going to have children or if the fibroid is so big that they can't remove it without damaging the rest of the uterus, removing the whole womb may be the best option. They do not have to remove the vagina or ovaria for this, so your sexlife will still be normal - they just remove the womb part.
Get a second opinion if you are not sure - this is a big operation.
