Uterine Fibroids: treatment and expectation

Uterine Fibroids: treatment and expectation
 
In the previous blog, we talked about how uterine fibroid is treated through surgical method known as Myomectomy. If your condition worsens, or if no other treatments work, your physician may perform a hysterectomy. However, this means that you will not be able to bear children in the future.

Minimally invasive procedures
A newer and completely noninvasive surgical procedure is forced ultrasound surgery (FUS). You lie down inside a special MRI machine that allows doctors to visualize the inside of your uterus. High-energy, high-frequency sound waves are directed at the fibroids to ablate, or destroy, them.
Similarly, myolysis shrinks fibroids using an electric current or laser, while cryomyolysis freezes the fibroids. Endometrial ablation involves inserting a special instrument into your uterus to destroy the uterine lining using heat, electric current, or hot water.
Another surgical option is uterine artery embolization. In this procedure, small particles are injected into the uterus in order to cut off the fibroids’ blood supply.

 What can be expected in the long term?
Your prognosis will depend on the size and location of your fibroids. Fibroids may not need treatment if they are small or do not produce symptoms.
If you are pregnant and have fibroids, or become pregnant and have fibroids, your doctor will carefully monitor your condition. In most cases, fibroids do not cause problems during pregnancy. Speak with your doctor if you expect to become pregnant and have fibroids.

I will be talking about fibroids in the upcoming blog as well. Stay connected.
