Generally, uterine fibroid enucleation requires a longer time of surgery, increased intraoperative blood loss, increased risk of postoperative rebleeding compared with total hysterectomy and have a risk of recurrence.
When you will be pregnant after the enucleation, Caesarian section is strongly recommended.
Beside a surgical treatment, there are an expectant management, hormonal treatments, and/or intravascular catheter treatment.
Please make sure that you fully understand the curability of this disease and the risk of complications before deciding which therapy you choose.
