Fibroids & Uterus

Yes.. as promised.. these are the pictures taken during my operation for my removal of fibroids and uterus. This was the size of the fibroids inside my uterus. A complete hysterectomy was performed because of the size of the fibroids.. they had to cut it like i was having a c-section.

The fibroids and uterus weighed about 3kg.. and 6″ wide. The size of a 26 weeks baby .. that was what my gynae .. Dr Mukherjee said.

I knew i had fibroids.. all my life.. but the fibroids grew after i had my baby .. some 4.5 yrs ago. But i didn’t wanna have it taken out earlier.. because my baby was still young.. and i don’t have enough help since I am alone in Canada.. and my family is in Singapore. My MIL came to help me .. but she has got her own garden to tend to .. and her home and family to take care of too. So no.. i couldn’t have done it earlier. I was in alot of pain.. for a long time. Just before my operation. .i was losing blood big time.. because of my fibroids.. and had to go for blood transfusion to get my hemoglobin up.
