This is my first time on the forums, so apologies if I have posted this in the wrong area.
I have been diagnosed with a Fibroid that is causing heavy bleeding. As I still wish to have children a Myomectomy has been recommended but I have been told at my NHS hospital that the surgical team do not have the expertise to perform a laparoscopic myomectomy so it will have to be open surgery. The size of my fibroid does not make a laparoscopic operation neccessarily unsuitable, it is just a hospital restriction.
Does anyone know if I have the right to ask to have the operaton at another NHS hospital? Looking at the recovery times for the two types of surgery, I would much rather not have the open surgery unless it is medically the only option.
