Hi, originially, my Dr. thought my uterus was a 3 month size, but once they did surgery, it was 5 month. I had mine done 4/25/12...ovaries were left. I feel so much better now,,,,I recommend staying off work for at least 6 weeks to recover....best wishes.

Re: Can I get the DaVinci surgery with a large uterus and fibroids?

I had davinci surgery on April 13th. My uterus was tthe size of a 7 month pregnancy(doc said largest he has done dvh). The surgery took 5 1/2 hrs. And I spent 2 nights in the hospital due to blood lose. But I have only 3 small incisions and uterus wass removed thru those incisions(not vaginally). My recovery was very fast. I returned to full time employment in 7 days. I kept cervix and ovaries. I have no family history of cancer so my doc view is if it isn't broke don't fix it. I think the size is not a issue as much with davinci. It is health(you are inverted on the table for surgery). But do know davinci surgery is expensive. Even with good insurance I'm just now getting bills and ouch.

Re: Can I get the DaVinci surgery with a large uterus and fibroids?

Well I just saw a Davinci surgeon today. Since my prolapse is solved nicely with a Pressary ring. We see no need to have surgery yet. Nothing is bothering and she said fibroids will shrink 30 - 40 % after menopause, which should be soon. So maybe things will not get worse, and sugery may never be needed. She also rated my uterus more at 4 months. So I am sooo thankful for that second opinon. She also said a woman can have a prolapse vagiana even after a hysterectomy. Anyone out there ever have that?

I am going on June 26 for prolapse and suspected adenomyosis. They are taking the uterus and cervix. Did they take your cervix as well? Was it abdominal?

Also, can you tell me, does this relentless pressure go away

Thanks!

I'm so glad your 2nd opinion saved you from surgery. I don't know anything about prolapsed vaginas, but there is a forum section for pelvic floor issues on here. Maybe you can find answers there.
