Hello doctor,

My query is about my sister. She is a 31 year old female who is unmarried. Her height is 5 feet and she weighs 55 kg. She is suffering from huge uterine fibroid measuring 140 x 83 mm arising from the right fundus of the uterus. I would like to know what are the best treatment options available? Can natural treatments be tried upon? We have tried ayurveda, which helped only in shrinking bulky uterus but not fibroid. How serious is this condition? She is pale and underweight. Will surgery cause difficulties? Please guide.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

As this is a subserosal fibroid, she is unmarried, the remaining uterus is bulky but endometrial lining is normal and there are no other intramural fibroid detected, the best form of removal for this large fibroid would be through a laparoscopic approach.

A laparoscopic myomectomy can be performed through 3 hole technique and the fibroid can be removed with the help of a morcellator by slicing it into pieces before removal through the port entry puncture hole.
