The process of seeing a new surgeon and getting surgery scheduled turned out to be a lot longer than I expected. I was hoping to have gotten the surgery done during the summer months, but had no such luck. With the new surgeon, it seemed like I had to make an appointment for each little part of the process. It started with an initial consult. The next appointment was for a pelvic exam. The next appointment was for the Saline Ultrasound, which is a special ultrasound that allows the doctor to see all of the fibroids and map out the location and size of each one. This was followed by another consult to determine what type of surgery would be needed. The doctor suggested doing the surgery in 2 phases, due to the number of fibroids present. he would be going in hysteroscopically, as it was done in the past. I had to schedule a pre-surgery physical and finally by the middle of August I had the first surgery scheduled for August 31st.
