Any surgery involves risks; some are greater than others, but they are still there, and they are able to scare even the bravest woman from undertaking an important surgery such as the one used to remove fibroid tumors. If you are one of these brave soldiers (you might have already given birth to at least one child) who is chickening out whenever you hear the words “surgery”, “scalpel” or “general anesthesia”, you might be needing some extra guidance along the way.
It is only natural to act this way. Surgery-phobia is definitely not a joke. However, there are ways to go over your fears and come across a specialist who can have everything explained to you step by step. Knowing exactly what does such a surgery honestly imply, what are its exact risks and maybe some statistics should do the trick for most of you. After learning all the insights of these surgeries, and knowing what it is that really happens inside of you the moment the surgeon starts to use his scalpel, you will grow to see things are not really as bad as they look.
Returning to the heart of the matter, which is how to choose the best specialist for the job, here are some cool tips you might want to know. First of all, it might be a swell idea to go to one of your female friends who has already went through a similar scenario and ask for some recommendations in terms of surgeons or physicians. A woman who has already gone through such a surgery will definitely be able to guide you toward the best specialist, or at least tell you which of them to avoid seeing.
If you do not have such girlfriends, you could always go to a renowned public hospital or a private clinic you know you can completely trust and maybe talk to one of the female nurses, tell her about your intentions of going through surgery and ask for her advice and recommendations. A nurse who knows her way inside a hospital should also be quick to let you in on all the physicians and your specialists should be just around the corner.
You could also use the Yellow Pages and find some private clinics, make a couple of phone calls and make some appointments, see a few doctors and have some serious talks with them. The one who is going to sound the most sincere, skilled, experienced and able to use “baby talk” to talk you through the surgery should become your main center of attention and probably your own physician.
