In an atypical incident, a team of doctors have successfully removed 50 tumours from the uterus of a woman in Itanagar. The woman has suffered from heavy and painful menstrual cycle for several years and consulted many doctors at various places.
The three hour long surgery was led by senior gynaecologist Dr Posting Bayang and a team of doctors at Rama Krishna Mission Hospital.
"As she was in her early 30s and unmarried, we went for the risky uterus preserving surgery known as Myomectomy", Dr Bayang said.
She had multiple benign tumours in her uterus known as Myomas, Mr Bayang found on probe.
Earlier, many doctors mostly been advised her to undergo Hysterectomy, removal of the entire uterus. The woman was anaemic due to heavy menstrual blood loss and had taken multiple blood transfusions.
"The three-hour operation was successfully done on August 15. The patient recovered well and has been discharged from the hospital", the doctor said.
