Doctors Successfully Removed Multiple Fibroids and preserved the Uterus for future pregnancy of a 39-year-old Woman at Wockhardt Hospitals, Mira Road

A team headed by Dr Rachna Sharma, consultant Gynaecologist at Wockhardt Hospitals, Mira Road extracted multiple fibroids weighing 2.25 kgs from the uterus of a 39-year-old singer while preserving her uterus, after a 4-hour complex surgery. The patient suffered from abnormal menstrual bleeding due to multiple fibroids of various sizes in the uterus and distorting the anatomy of the uterus. Saving her uterus will allow her to conceive in future.

Patient Ayushi Mehra (Name Changed) a singer by profession experienced heavy menstrual bleeding, painful period, and abnormal menses. Her health started deteriorating as the pain increased, interfering with her daily activities. The patient was referred to Wockhardt Hospitals, Mira Road wherein she received prompt medical attention. The patient appeared 7-months pregnant when she walked into the hospital due to the fibroids.

Dr. Rachna Sharma, Consultant Gynaecologist, Wockhardt Hospitals, Mira Road said, “Uterine fibroids is a gynaecological condition where non-cancerous tumors are seen in a woman’s uterus. If left untreated, they become big in size and put pressure on surrounding organs like the bladder and bowels. Fibroids are commonly seen in women of all age groups. Women ignore health complications and then come to the emergency room seeking treatment. This patient appeared 7 months pregnant and had a history of heavy menstrual bleeding and sometimes more than once bleeding in a month. She had severe pain during periods for a few years. She wanted to opt for fertility treatment. When I checked her uterus, it felt above the umbilicus. Her sonography showed large uterine fibroids, the biggest one was 12″-13″. She was advised to undergo myomectomy first, that is removal of the fibroids first before undergoing fertility treatment.”

Dr Rachna added, “We systematically planned the surgery. Usually, with such big fibroids, the whole uterus is removed, because it’s difficult to save the uterus. But because the patient wanted to have children so we had to save her uterus. Sonography had shown 9 big-sized fibroids and multiple smaller ones. We took out 14 fibroids total which weighed around 2.25 kgs. We took out as many fibroids as possible by a single incision, because more incisions on the uterus would be risky for her future pregnancy. As it was a major surgery, it took more than 4 hours to complete. Anaesthesia was excellent as the patient was very comfortable throughout the surgery in spite of the long hours, and as a surgeon, we were also very happy with the relaxation of the patient. The patient recovered well after surgery and started on the full diet after 36 hours. We were able to provide prompt medical attention to the patient. The “Mama Care” Unit at Wockhardt Hospitals Mira Road is well-equipped with all the facilities to handle any emergencies with end-to-end care and treatment.”

“I was unaware that multiple fibroids were growing inside my body. I was having cramping, painful menses, and abnormal menstrual bleeding. I was bloated and in unbearable pain. I was shocked to know that there were as many as 14 fibroids in the uterus. I thank the doctors at Wockhardt Hospitals for performing successful surgery as I was hesitant to go for it. It was sort of a miracle for me as the doctors could preserve my uterus. I am happy that I have got a fresh lease of life. I am looking forward to conceiving,” concluded patient Ayushi Mehra (Name Changed).
