anne-m“I had fibroids for 2 years and I had a GYN who was very laid back about them. I was trying to conceive. After about a year, the fibroids were clearly a problem. I switched doctors, but that doctor had the exact opposite advice, saying I needed surgery right away, I was infertile, and she was really harsh about it. She said I would need an open procedure, and that if I wanted to get pregnant down the line I would need to take 6-8 weeks off.” said Anne from Omaha, NE.

Anne had been dealing with fibroids for several years, and they were affecting her ability to get pregnant. She could not find the options she was looking for close to home, and decided to research fibroid removal procedures online. She found that a minimally invasive myomectomy for fibroids of any number and size, is possible at The Center for Innovative GYN Care.

Anne decided to travel to the Washington DC area for the innovative LAAM procedure developed by CIGC’s Paul MacKoul MD and Natalya Danilyants MD. She wondered if she will be a candidate as she had 13 fibroids to be removed. Anne had a successful laparoscopic myomectomy and was back to normal within days.

“After 10 days I was back to normal. No complications, no severe pain. I was working out after 2 weeks. I have my abs back now. I didn’t realize how uncomfortable I was until after I had the surgery. I literally feel like a concrete block has been removed from my abdominal area. I’m back to normal, but better than normal used to be.”
