Detailed Answer:
Hello ma'am,

Thanks for trusting hcm about your health care.
I can understand your concern here.
Yes, you are right as her symptoms are not relieved by conservative and medical management laproscopic myomectomy and sub total hysterectomy is treatment of choice for her.
Fibroid usually get shrink after menopause.
In her case as you said I think you have tried many conservative methods and they all failed than you are thinking a option for surgery.
In my opinion hysterectomy is best treatment for her( as she completed her family).
Hope it is useful, feel free to ask more questions.
Good luck.
