Uterine Myomectomy has had a significant impact on many patients’ lives, including Mara Ann Mankhomwa, a 36-year-old Zimbabwean resident.
For almost a year, Mankhomwa was experiencing a consistent, sharp pain in her abdomen, as well as the feeling of being very bloated, making her everyday activities challenging and uncomfortable. She underwent multiple tests, yet the cause of her symptoms was not found.
During this time, Mankhomwa tried fertility treatment. It was during one of the routine tests that the source of her pain and discomfort was finally uncovered – she had uterine fibroids. Not sure about how to handle this new development, Mankhomwa decided to receive a second opinion and through a friend was referred to Vaidam.com.
After considerable enquiries, Mankhomwa decided to approach one of the best uterine fibroids doctors in India: Dr. Poonam Khera, M.D. Doctor Khera who had been a specialist at BLK hospital for over 10 years. Upon looking at reports sent by Mankhomwa, she was certain that the source of the pain and bloating were the fibroids and advised that she get them surgically removed.
“I recommended that Mara-Ann undergo a robotic-assisted myomectomy, which is an innovative surgical procedure used to remove uterine fibroids,” explains Dr. Khera. “Although fibroids are common, in some women, they contribute to recurrent miscarriage, infertility, and pre-term delivery.”
During a robotic-assisted myomectomy, the surgeon’s goal is to remove symptom-causing fibroids and reconstruct the uterus, leaving it intact, thereby enabling a woman to become pregnant, if she so desires. By utilizing the robot, surgeons utilize smaller incisions to perform surgery, leading to less post-operative pain and faster recovery.
Determined with the initial prognosis, Mankhomwa and her husband made their way to India and arrived on the 18th of April for her treatment. Not wanting to waste any further time, Mankhomwa decided to undergo surgery as soon as possible. After suffering for years with painful periods and extreme bleeding, Mankhomwa made her way out one of the best fibroid treatment hospitals In India two days later, finally glad to be rid of her incessant pain.
Three days after leaving the hospital, Mankhomwa and her husband are all set to make their way back to their home country. “My husband and I are so grateful for Dr. Khera’s expertise and guidance,” shares Mankhomwa. “It’s a dream come true – my pain is gone, and hopefully we will be able to have a baby soon! Dr. Khera gave me and my husband a second chance at a happy ending, and we are so appreciative!”
