After the overwhelming show of concern by fans and Nigerians in general to news of her fibroid removal surgery in India, Nollywood actress, Halima Abubakar had while soaking in all the love and concern given an explanation as to why she shared her experience. According to her, she wanted her story to be a source of encouragement to all those going through different stages of the disease.

The curvy and sometimes controversial actress, had also taken it upon herself to enlighten the general public about the true nature of the fibroid case she had, dishing out all the medical benefits and intricacies involved in the decision making for having different types of procedures to remove the fertility-threatening disease. Hear her:

Removal of Fibroids: Myomectomy is an operation to remove fibroid tumours (myomas) from the uterus. This retains the uterus, and is an alternative treatment to hysterectomy. It is sometimes a more difficult operation than hysterectomy but preserves reproductive choice for the patient.

Advantages of laparoscopic myomectomy:
1 Small incisions and less scarring
2 Gentler handling of the body tissues and organs during the operation
3 Less postoperative pain
4 Less postoperative narcotic use for pain relief
5 Shorter hospitalisation
6 Faster overall recovery with an earlier return to normal activity
7 How does laparoscopic myomectomy work?
8 Preoperative preparation involves a shave and a small enema, and you will need 9 to fast for six hours before the operation.

(The Process) A general anaesthetic is administered.

The laparoscope and other instruments are introduced – see laparoscopic surgery for more details.
The fibroid is visualised. A cut is made in the uterus and the fibroid is freed from the uterine muscle.
The incision in the uterus is repaired with sutures.
The fibroid is removed, usually by cutting it up into small pieces to get it out of the small incisions.

The wounds are closed.

Recovery after fibroid removal

Immediate post-operative recovery involves an average of two days in hospital. A fifth of patients can go home late the next day after surgery, and about 80% patients are home in two days. Patients are welcome to rest in hospital for as long as they need to.

One in five patients will only need tablets and not injections for postoperative pain relief. If injections are required about two are needed on average. Patients will be given as much pain relief as they request to make sure they are comfortable.

A low-grade temperature is common in the first few days after surgery. The first few days at home should be taken very easily. The patient should have someone to help. Plenty of rest and fluids are advisable. Exercise your calf muscles to prevent clots. Oral pain relief such as Panadeine or Panadol may be needed, especially at night.

Graded recovery over the next few weeks will occur. Gentle increasing exercise is helpful. Driving is permissible. Expect to tire easily.

Quite an enlightening piece you’ll agree. Celeb Police wishes her fast recovery.
