Having a heavy period and clots are normal after a myomectomy surgery.  I had my myomectomy done on Dec 8, 2008 and after I left the hospital three days after the surgery my period started on December 17, 2008 and lasted 13 days.  I passed massive clots, and like you I was alarmed by the amount of blood I was loosing, but that was all normal and I'm doing fine.  I look forward to getting pregnant in February of 2009.

Hello & Happy Mother's Day! My name is Monique and I am from California. I just saw your post about your first few menstrual cycles after your myomectomy in 2008, and I'm experiencing the same symptoms with the heavier-than-pre-surgery flow and blood clots. Can you tell me how everything worked out for you? Any advise you can give would be much appreciated. Thank you!

Well I am somewhat relieved to here some of these comments. I had a vaginal procedure to remove my tumor but had complications and my doctor was unable to complete the procedure. So I still have part of the tumor attached to my uterine wall. My first "real" cycle started this week and I actually went to the ER b/c I felt so dizzy, nauseous and the pain was unbearable--by blood count was low and I was dehydrated. Tonight (day 5 of my cycle) I passed one of the biggest clots ever and I feared it was the remaining tumor passing. I have bled very heavily all week. If after all of this and the actual removal things don't improve what's the point?
