Question: I had a a myomectomy surgery 3 days ago, in which they removed three large fibroids. Before they remove my fibroids I was experiencing urine retention. now it seems as if some of the symptoms are coming back I feel the same feeling in the bottom of my uterus I just want to know could this be something that I doing wrong by walking excessively or maybe I knocked it back out of place but I still feel the swelling in my vagina is this something fell or that could be due to the surgery is well. Before the myomectomy my uterus was at the opening of the vagina and it still feels like it is

Brief Answer:
hi

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome. First you should wait for 2 weeks to see final results of surgery.
Fibroids removal is in most cases not related to uterus prolaps and urine retention so you may not see improvement in this part. You should ask your surgeon for type of procedure that was done. if only myoma was removed without uterus prolapse repair then you should not expect improvement. Wish you good health. Regards
