Myomectomy/IVF question??

Hello Ladies,
​I just found out that I have to schedule Myomectomy surgery ASAP. They found a giant fibroid sitting inside my uterus. I just turned 42 & trying for our first. My fertility Dr. advised to start <a href="">IVF</a> prior to the surgery?? I know I'm older but she told me all my blood work ok, egg reserve is fine. Do you think <a href="">IVF</a> a little premature? Total cost is $15k & of course, insurance doesn't help.
​Thanks for the advice :))
