Quad Webb Was Able To Get Rid Of 10 Uterine Fibroids Without A Myomectomy Or Hysterectomy

Married to Medicine and Sister Circle star Quad Webb admits she was so busy with work and life that she ignored a lot of the discomfort she was experiencing internally.

“I clearly saw and felt the changes in my body,” she told HipHollywood in a recent interview. “The lower back pain and lower abdomen pain, frequent urination, heavier periods. It was tough.”

The 39-year-old was later diagnosed with uterine fibroids, and she was told she had 10. Quad was made aware of her options, including a myomectomy, which is a procedure that removes uterine fibroids and can either be done by cutting open the abdomen, or via a laparoscopic option, which is a few small incisions around the abdomen and in the belly button.

Quad was smart enough to call around and make sure she knew of all of her options. An OBGYN friend in Chicago made her aware of Acessa, which is a minimally invasive treatment option that reportedly uses radiofrequency ablation to destroy the fibroid, allowing it to be cut off from its blood supply and absorbed by the body.  One small incision is made to allow the camera, any tools and the electrode array tool to be inserted to get to the fibroid. It doesn’t require a doctor to cut or suture the uterus. It sounded like the perfect option for Quad, and was after all.
