Q-and-your-A: Fibroids and future fertility

(I'm changing the rules of Moxie Madness 2012 slightly because I miscalculated the number of matchups we need to do--I'll be running voting across weekends as well as weekdays, but weekend votes will be open for the entire weekend instead of just one day.)

A friend has been diagnosed with a large fibroid outside her uterus and will have surgery to remove it. Her doctors are giving her a great prognosis, but she's heard a million horror stories. I'm looking for positive stories or encouragement for her. She's specifically concerned about her future fertility (she's in her early 30s and has never tried to get pregnant) as well as internal sccaring and adhesions that could interfere with a pregnancy.

Does anyone have stories with good outcomes for her?
