Re: Question for the ladies - fibroids

Thanks everyone for your public and private messages. <insert big hug emoticon here> Very much appreciated as I try to work through this. It just seems so...overwhelming...since I don't have children yet and do want them.

I do want to clarify this bit though:

...Based on the doctor's description of the procedure, they would use a power morcellator.
I talked to the doctor again today, and I misunderstood. The procedure is more like a D&C and is not done with an incision (trying to keep graphic details out ). To be honest after reading up on both procedures, I don't really understand how a C is better or different from a morcellator but at least it's less invasive and sounds less scary.

Will keep you posted. And thanks again.
