There are no fibroid specialists. These are handled by general gynaecologists. Myomectomy, removing only the fibroids, is an option, but this could be difficult if they are very big.

Deee I just had a hysterectomy because I had a fibroid the size of a 14 week fetus in my uterus. Initially I was really upset about having to have the op but now there is no looking back. This was 2 months ago and I feel fantastic now that I no longer have very painful periods or a tummy that made me look like I was 20 weeks pregnant. it is the best thing that I could have done. I also managed to find a wonderful gynae, he was truly amazing. if you live in Durban I can give you his name.
Don't live with your fibroids anymore, it's just not worth it!

Hi Also,

I think shes trying to avoid having her uterus removed.

Deee: In what area do you stay?

Hi Dee

Is there a reason why you don't want them removed? I had two large fibriods removed two years ago and its the best thing I ever did. No more painful periods.
