I've recently undergone a pelvic ultrasound and CT scan for fibroid tissues.  Results just back and informed uterus is massively enlarged.  What is the normal size of a uterus? If the uterus is removed abdominally, how big is the incision? Thanks.

Normal size of a non-pregnant uterus is sort of the size of a pear or maybe an avocado for a bigger girl.  It grows to grapefruit size very fast in early pregnancy, then on from there.  A very stretchy muscle, and very accomodating of things inside it.  Skin is stretchy too, so they might be able to get a large uterus out of a pretty small incision.  Good luck!

I just had an ultrasound done and the comments said "uterus is normal in size measuring 6.9 x 3.1 x 4.7cm. Hopefully that helps you!
