Fibroids are the commonest tumours in the uterus. They are known to occur in close to 50% of women. In the vast majority of them, a fibroid does not produce any symptoms and this can be left alone without treatment.
Yes, the number of fibroids does not make a difference in the treatment since all of them are supplied by the same vessels.
There can be minor complications like pain and fever which will settle in a few days time and can be managed with medications. The chance of major complications is extremely rare.

I run a textile business where my presence is crucial. When I was diagnosed for uterine fibroids, I thought the treatment would put me to bed for a few weeks. Thanks to Dr. Mathew and the Interventional Radiology techniques, I was back on my feet on the third day, to my business as usual.
I had an unbearable headache and was taken to the hospital. Further investigations revealed a blood clot in the brain secondary to a ruptured AVM. My family was dependent on me, getting back to work was crucial. At KMCH Dr. Cherian and his team blocked the abnormal blood vessel without opening my brain. I was soon back to normal. The meter in my auto is running again, quicker than I thought.
One day strangely I felt a kind of heaviness in my bowels. I had blood pouring when I went to the toilet. Over the next few hours, I started losing huge amounts of blood every time I emptied my bowels. I was nearing death. A timely procedure done by Dr. Mathew saved my life. I imagine an open surgery would have kept me for weeks in bed not to mention the other discomforts. I was back attending my patients on the third day.
