Hi ladies ! I have an unusual request if anyone can help. I've mentioned in some of my previous posts that I'm visual and analytical especially when it comes to my parts is parts. I have found actual pictures of fibroid surgeries on the net. What I have been trying to find is a video to show the actual procedure from beginning to end for a hysterectomy with fibroids. Kind of like surgeries they show on TLC. I asked my Dr., but he didn't know of any (he probably thought I was crazy). I know you'll probably think I'm weird or morbid (actually I'm quite squemish) but.... I even asked my Dr. if they could take pictures, video and possibly save my "sickie uterus", as my Dr. called it, so I could see what it looked like. I even called the hospital education library but they didn't have anything either. If anyone knows of any, please e-mail me and let me know. At last resort, short of becoming a gyn student, I guess I could call TLC or discovery and see if they have anything on their files of that nature and maybe they can run it. I don't see why not, they show knee, hip & cosmetic surgeries and those are pretty explicit. Anyway, I know you'll think I'm crazy but if anyone can help I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
P.S. Sorry if I posted this in the wrong forum. Didn't know where else to post.

Hi there!

Nope, I don't think you're crazy at all! I think it's natural to be curious and want to know exactly what happens during this surgery. Unfortunately, I don't know of any videos available, but it appears that you're trying the same things I would have suggested.

Good Luck!

I dont think your strange. I have searched the net over and over looking for more pictures. The Pelvic floor is not very graphic when it comes to a TAH.

So, if you find anything out, please let the rest of us know!


(I have even thought about asking my surgeon if I could come in and watch one of his surgery's one day. I really wish he worked out of the hosptial I work in!)
