Hi blond007-

I don't know if you can still keep your ovaries with multiple cysts. I thinks some surgeries with fibroids can still be done vaginally, it really depends on your doctor and what they think they can do.

Ask you doctor if you surgery type and what they are taking has changed.

Re: huge uterus ,large fibroid and multiple cysts ovaries

I had a very large uterus due to fibroids (size of a small watermelon) and they were able to do DvH with no problem. My doctor said he could do DvH even if my fibroids got bigger (in case I didn't want to do it right away). But my doctors said they couldn't do vaginal with the fibroids the size they were since I never had kids. Are you a candidate for DaVinci or laproscopic? I had, had a cyst on my ovary but it went away. Best to check in with your doc and see what she/he says is possible.

Re: huge uterus ,large fibroid and multiple cysts ovaries

When I went under I was a possible abdominal surgery due to huge fibroids, a uterus 3x larger than normal, and I had 3 previous cesareans with lots of scar tissue. The total (with cervix removed due to precancerous polyps) LAVH was successful & I was able to keep one ovary. I wish you all the best!
