Seeking a second opinion - gynaecologist

Post by newsgirl » Wed, 16 May 2018 11:43 pm

Hi team, looking for recommendations for names of gynaecologists for a second opinion.

Doctor just recently found multiple fibroids during a routine exam and follow up scans. The biggest is 10cm (though showing signs of degeneration), I have two other sizable ones at 5cm each. But I have no symptoms, no problems with pain or bleeding. I’m told the fibroids are not positioned in a way that would affect fertility.

After getting some (email) opinions from doctor friends in NZ and Aus, it seems the general approach there if you don’t have symptoms, is to leave the fibroids alone, but schedule a follow up scan in 6 months to check the size of the big one and then reassess.

I was a little bit unnerved when the Singapore specialist the GP referred me to suggested surgery to remove all the fibroids straight away. Overall I left the doctor’s office with a lingering feeling it was more about the insurance dollars. I trust this doctor is a very good surgeon but I don’t want to have unnecessary surgery.

I am 31 and very much still want to have children.

Can anyone help me out with names of gynaecologists, public or private.

Thanks!

Dear newsgirl,

I go to Dr Paul Tseng, he's an amazing doctor and everything has been extra smooth with him. Only thing is that it's a tad difficult to get a consultation with him because of his schedule.

nonetheless I wouldnt go to anyone else!

Hello, I know how hard it is having different opinons from doctors and you need to atleast get another opinion so as to grant you peace of mind. You can try my doctor.. Dr Ann Tan at Women Fertility & Fetal Centre at Mount Elizabeth Medical Centre. Hope all goes well my friend.
