Welcome to HCM.
Choice of surgery depends on size and number of fibroids and whether they are adherent to the surrounding tissues.
Large fibroids are better removed by open surgery. If severe adhesions are present again open surgery is more safe.
In all the cases where there are no other complications, laparoscopic removal is preferable.
Wish you all the best.
Laparoscopic myomectomy or hysterectomy are better than open surgery in experianced laparoscopist, but the cost of surgery is high, but duration stay in hospital, post op pain, and morbidity is low.
