Hi, prolapsed fibroids can be managed vaginally if small. Fibroids in the wall or outside uterus can be managed by open or laparoscopic surgery. Your gynecologist can decide if you need removal of just the fibroids or entire uterus (provided family is complete). If instrument availability is a problem, and you want laparoscopic removal, then surely you can take a second opinion at a center where such surgeries are performed. Open surgery is not more risky, but you get a larger scar, sutures, and longer hospital stay and more pain than laparoscopic approach. Sometimes, large fibroids are better removed by open surgery. So decide with your gynecologist. good luck.
