Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing to HCM

I have gone through your wife's reports in detail.

Probably your wife is suffering from large fibroid uterus,though it is not properly mentioned in the report as final diagnosis.Due to lesion,uterus is enlarged in size.

If there is any doubt in USG findings then contrast CT scan of abdomen can be done.
Fibroid is benign tumour of the uterus. Fibroid may involve many regions of the uterus like muscle of uterus(called as intramural),below serosa of uterus(called as subserosa) etc.

Fibroid can be treated by both means,conservatively and surgically depend upon many things like symptoms,age,family is completed or not etc.

Endometrial thickness is normal.

Minimal free fluid noted POD may be due to many reason like ovulation etc.

Other findings are within normal limit.

Get well soon.
Hope I have answered your question.
Further queries are most welcome.

Conservative treatment means treatment without surgical intervention.
She is suffering from large fibroid.If it is causing symptoms and family is completed then surgical removal of uterus can be done,so you can follow your doctor's advice.It will not respond much to medicines.
Don't worry about complications.Every operation has chance of some complications,it is not universal in all cases.Generally it is considered as safe operation.

Get well soon.
