    1. I know 2 people that have died after fibroid operation,the risk of complications after surgery is high. Usually internal bleeding.
      These women were in their 30s,healthy and took time looking for good Private hospitals. One went to same hospital dat did her sisters own succesfully.

    3. Anon 11.05 it's easy nothing will go wrong just stick to the directives or advice the doctors will give you after the surgery.

    4. Anon 11:05,use a general hospital pls. And I heard there's a minimally invasive surgery in town now, I'll prefer that. I also have fibroids but I no send them. I can manage the symptoms and it's not affecting my fertility.
      If I eventually do, I'll go for the minimal surgery or the one that doctors burn off wit ultra light energy or so.

    11. Sparkle 777 it's not all fibriods that can be removed through the minimally invasive surgery. The Size of the fibruod matters and you can't choose the type of surgery you want.

    12. Most drs here will advise you to leave the fibroids unless its causing you too much bleeding and other issues.There are ways of handling g it here. I advised and begged my late sister not to do it. My obgyn friends asked her not to. She did, & survived it, but the carpenter who did the surgery started the cut from beneath her breast bones, with a huge T-shaped huge scar that tells me his anatomy lessons were sub par. It didn't solve the fertility issue and I think he messed her womb as her bleeding was uncontrollable till another wicked hospital murdered her a few years later before she could come and get checked out here. You can carry multiples depending on your fibroid size. Do not do it, travel to do it if you must.

      The problem with Nigeria is that every university feels they must offer programs they are not equipped to offer and churn out ill trained professionals. UI started in 1952 as a campus of the university of London but did not offer Engineering and many programs till years, or decades later. Some 100+ year old universities here do not offer many programs if they feel the resources are not there or they want to specialize but all the glorified high schools called private university offer medicine and programs they have neither the skilled faculty nor technology to train competently.The corruption in Nigeria cuts across accrediting institutions and it sucks.

      Some NGO needs to compile the needless surgeries and the fatalities in Nigeria and close the mushroom med schools churning out murderers. You do not have to listen to this advice but I typed it reluctantly as I rarely comment under stories as emotional as this. May she continue to rest in peace and may the drs who couldn't do a very basic surgery or who perform needless ones for money get the vengeance of God.

  6. Health care practitioners will start learning to sit up and pay attention to their jobs whether they like it or not.
    This death was an avoidable one.

  7. Just reminded me of a very nice sweet colleague who died in one private hospital. Greedy doctor, he couldn't get other doctors to assist him esp those that will be monitoring the woman BP etc. She died soon after the surgery, till date I still shed tears at her demise. A very nice godly woman at that. Rest on ma'am.

  8. Whenever you are going to do any surgery you must find out the track record of the surgeon for that procedure, their success rate and how many times that procedure has been done in their facility. If it is a private hospital they may lie, but do your best to check and ask around. Even just typing the doctor's name and hospital in Google should help with your research. It is also perfectly okay to shop around. You do not have to take the first person you meet, getting a second and third opinion is fine. If you do not feel comfortable with a doctor you meet do not let them cut you. You need to feel that you can trust the person and there is some rapport however small. It's your money and life on the line.

    My condolences to the family of this young woman.

    1. That info is available here in the US. It’s not available in Nigeria. My only advice is to patronize older Drs who are more likely better trained.
