Uterine Fibroid

Today, my mum will admitted to hospital for her major operation on the uterine fibroid. As doctor advice, she will gonna take out the whole uterus and ovary together with the fibroid. This will cause a killing painful on the internal part after operation and patient is advisable to rest at home at least for 2 months 9no house works allow)

Below are some simple information from wikipedia.

A uterine fibroid is a non-cancerous tumor that originates from the smooth muscle layer and the accompanying connective tissue of the uterus. Fibroids are the most common benign tumors in females and typically found during the middle and later reproductive years. While most fibroids are asymptomatic, they can grow and cause heavy and painful menstruation, painful sexual intercourse, and urinary frequency and urgency. Fibroids are often multiple and if the uterus contains too many leiomyomatas to count, it is referred to as uterine leiomyomatosis. The malignant version of a fibroid is uncommon and termed a leiomyosarcoma.
