Liesha Got Freedom From Fibroids Through Minimal Invasive Surgery in India

by Ankita Mathur Medical Consultant

For 2 years, Liesha of Yemen planned her entire life around the cantaloupe-sized fibroid growing in her uterus. "Fibroids can take over, and mine took over," says Liesha, 49. "Now I'm free, and if I'd known, I'd have had them removed long ago!

“My health journey has been a complete rollercoaster. Approximately six months ago, my primary care doctor (PCP) in Yemen discovered a large mass in my abdomen. Right away, she ordered an ultrasound and CT scan to figure out what was going on. I was told by my PCP that I had a large fibroid in my abdomen and I might need a hysterectomy. I was skeptical with her prognosis due to the fact she had formerly informed me I was pregnant when I was not. She had also informed me I was pre-diabetic, which I’m no longer. Knowing that a hysterectomy is a major life-changing surgical treatment, I went with my intestine and looked into getting a remote second opinion in India, as I had heard a lot about Indian medical industry has developed tremendously. At that point, I began searching for information about fibroid surgery in India on the Internet. The Internet led me to Indian Med Guru Consultant. The website’s knowledge page was filled with experiences other women had, as well as women from my own country. Also at the site, I learned about doctors and treatment options and was surprised to see the plethora of options available to me. I looked at the Indian Med Guru Consultant service to find a doctor for me.”

“Seeing that I was alone travelling to India, Indian Med Guru Consultant service team helped me to get a visa and set up the whole trip. A team member from Indian Med Guru helped me in applying for a medical visa, which was received within 72 hours. After reaching India, I realized people in India were highly supportive and welcoming. Once I reached India, my appointment was scheduled with a gynecologist. She handled me really well and listened to my story patiently.”

“She laid out the options for me, I knew surgery was the next step, and I was ready for it. The doctor recommended a hysterectomy with the da Vinci® “S” robot-assisted minimally invasive surgery system. I didn’t hesitate. I could have elected myomectomy, but there was a good chance that the fibroids would grow back, and I didn’t want that. Why go through this twice? I had already had two children and my husband and I didn’t plan to have another. I didn’t have a lot of sentimental attachment to my uterus. It did its job, and now it had to go!” Liesha chuckles.”

“Most women who undergo this procedure have less blood loss during surgery, less scarring and a shorter hospital stay. Many can go home the next morning. The miniature instruments on the robot provide excellent access to the tiny areas of that region of the body. They gave me everything they could think of to make my overnight fun: magazines, books, snuggly blankets and mints. They took such good care of us. The sophisticated three-dimensional imaging system and high-powered magnification the da Vinci provides allows me to see the surgical area up close. Just a few hours later, I was awake and recovering in the hospital. I was so well cared for after surgery, getting out of bed and walking to the bathroom was initially just as challenging as it had been right after I had children. The nurses were attentive to my needs. They were patient and kind and really helped me. They did so much to make me feel better about my progress. After another week in India, I traveled back to Yemen, overjoyed with how my overall trip had been. I am so glad I got in touch with Indian Med Guru Consultant, I received so much information about the procedure beforehand by my health representative, I felt informed and comfortable asking questions.”
