Myomectomy Pics

Here is what your doctor sees when s/he does a laparoscopic myomectomy (removal of uterine leiomyomata, or fibroids):

Uterine fibroids

Very nice picture of a fibroid uterus, with three fibroids.

The uterus is at the center of the pic. The, almost aligned, three fibroids are to the left, on the uterine body, from top to bottom. Part of an instrument is visible in the R upper corner. Bilaterally, from the upper part of the uterus, you have the Fallopian tubes, projecting outward and down. Notice, in the R lower corner, you can see the ovary.

I just had a myomectomy last fall and this is fascinating. Wow.

Question: it's more of an effort to suck in my tummy now than it was before. Is that normal after a myomectomy?
