Hysteroscopic Myomectomy and Polypectomy

What happens after hysteroscopy and polypectomy?

Myomectomy means the removal of myomas (fibroid growths inside or on the uterus). Polypectomy removes polyps (benign growths, like skin tags, on the inside of the uterus).

Most patients can go home the same day. You may have increased cramping and vaginal bleeding for a day or two after the procedure. You may experience gas pains for about a day or so due to gas administered during the procedure. This may extend into your upper abdomen and shoulder.

What is Myomectomy?
Myomectomy is a surgical procedure to remove uterine fibroids — also called leiomyomas. These common noncancerous growths appear in the uterus. Uterine fibroids usually develop during childbearing years, but they can occur at any age.
Is hysteroscopic myomectomy a major surgery?
A myomectomy is defined as a procedure to remove fibroids (noncancerous lumps) from the uterus. Any surgery is called a major surgery if it requires an overnight or extended stay in the hospital needs anesthesia and involves removing or altering a part of the body. So, myomectomy can be considered as major surgery.
