You can have this done under epidural/spinal. The skin cut will depend on the size of the fibroids. If very big, it may not be possible to do a bikini cut. After the skin, the layer s which are cut through are fat, rectus sheath and peritoneum. The arteries clamped and cut are the ovarian and uterine arteries, and the uterus has to be cut free from the broad ligament and transverse cervical ligaments. The colon is usually pushed out of the way with swabs. If stuck to the uterus, this can be a problem. The bladder lies in front of the uterus and is also pushed down. Once again, if the anatomy is distorted, injury can occur.
