[Note: This forum became so full of comments that I created a second thread. Please see "How are you feeling after your Abdominal Myomectom? (part 2)" and post your comments there.]
A couple of contributors here have firsthand knowledge of this procedure so I’ll include a few passages and then open the floor. Click the links to view the entire comment.
fibroid free: 5 weeks post abdominal myomectomy..was feeling better except I was having this burning pain around my navel and down the left side of my abdomin for the last week
fibroid free: Keep an eye on your tempature the first few days. Mine was up a bit first night or 2 but I was on Cirpo antibiotics for 1 week. One week follow up doc appointment went well – on track. Things are gong well – have to remind myself not to do to much
One day to go – no more: My first real bout of pain was as I was walking into the house crunched over in pain, my friend standing in the doorway made a comment as she took my arm about this being us in 30 or 40 years. Let’s just say I could NOT stop laughing and I had no pillow or towel on my abs so IT HURT IT HURT.
