Dear Dr Del Junco Jr and Staff
Three years ago I had my tumors removed. I thougth the surgery by all means were a sucess. My doctor informed me that there was a great chance that the tumors would grow back and he had not removed them all. The tumors were very large in size. After the surgery my periods were ” if i may considered normal and my bleeding were now controlled . I felt good didnt have to stay at home on my first day of period for fear of bleeding right through five pads and two pair of pants and panties. Life was looking good.
Good things dont last forever . The tumors are back, while my bleeding has not increased my lower back is in much pain. My doctor has informed me that the tumors are larger than the ones removed. My question is this. Why cant I just have them removed again without having to have an hysterctomy. While it is true that I cant have children, that would be no reason for me to want a hysterectomy, I have three sister
I’m to see the specialist within the next two weeks my doctor is recommending hysterctomy and no other alternatives. Is it possible for me to have the first surgery again to remove the tumors.

Repeat surgery in the abdomen can be difficult. However, many of my patients are repeat myomectomy patients whose tumors were not effectively removed during their first surgery with other phyisicans. There is no reason why you cannot have your tumors removed and your uterus preserved. Chances of fertility may be slim due to repeat surgery and scarring, however you would be able to keep your organ for hormone control and sexual functioning.
