Hi thanks for your question.

your wife is having uterine fibroid along with abdominal tuberculosis.
If your wife is not bleeding too much from uterine fibroid ,treatment of tuberculosis takes the priority over tuberculosis can flare up with surgical traum

However if she is bleeding from uterine fibroid to the extent that her life is in danger surgery takes priority over tuberculosis it is for the the concerned doctor to decide what shoul be done first

.Hope i answered your question

if menses history is o.k.than surgery is not nessesory for pregnancy.becoz first you take full traetment of ATT with homeopathic medicine for fibroids.becoz
she have 2 negetive point for pregnancy.1. tubercular 2. age 40 .
now why r you planning surgery ? while your ovulation r normal.have you done Hystosalpingography ?
if your H.C.G IS NORMAL.than first you will plan for pregnancy even during treatment of ATT.Becoz fibroid could not affected for you can plan pregnancy before oppression .

Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Treatment of tuberculosis should be started first.
After 2 or 4 weeks, while continuing the drugs, fibroid surgery can be safely done.

Take care
Wishing you speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
