I’m obviously not a doctor, but after having a myomectomy in 2012 and a C-Section in 2015, I have a little bit of personal experience of ways to recover more quickly from the surgery. I know, because I did much better with my C-Section than I did with my myomectomy.
Most people have no idea what a myomectomy is, and I didn’t until I had to have one. A traditional myomectomy is very similar to a C-Section in that the incision is made in the same place and fibroids (benign tumors) are then cut from the walls of the uterus. I was told when prepping for my C-Section that the myomectomy is a slightly more difficult surgery because of the number of incisions and the location of the incisions, but that they’re very similar.
Tips for recovering from a C-Section or myomectomy.
Because of my quicker recovery from my first surgery to my second, I wanted to share my tips on ways to more quickly get back to feeling like yourself after either of these major surgeries.
