Adhesions and hysterectomy

I am 52 yrs and had 2 myomectomies so far. But the fibrods are back and huge. I feel the pressure of it and my belly protrudes so I look very pregnant. I have been advised not to have a hsterectomy as I may have adhesion and that can cause compilcations in surgery eg. perforation of my bladder resulting in me having a urine bag. I have also developed a fear of anasthetic. To put it sismply the doctorsaid I may go in with a condition that is not a medical problem and come out with one.

Thanks Cherie. You have already helped a lot.
The 2 doctors that told me this are US based. My doctor in Guyana(South America) never mentioned the adhesions and i was assuming that he was not as qualified or just did not want to mention that to scare me so i have not gone back to him since. As you can imagine, the US is more technologically advanced so I was really placing their assessment above the doctor here. I think I now have the courage to at least discuss it with the doctor here who has been urging me to have the surgery. If you know of any doctor in NY (that is where I have my insurance) who is ok with dealing with the adhesions please let me know.
