    If your fibroids were big they will be inflammed and swell after the UAE.  For me this lasted about 6 weeks. However some symptoms I had before UAE like going to the toilet a lot improved after a week. Make sure you eat lots of fibre. Probiotics might help too if you are feeling full.

    I found I could't eat properly for about a month after procedure. I continued with Buscopan for about 8 weeks after.

    I was going to the toilet a lot before the procedure now not as bad but feeling pain when doing the toilet do you think it’s just things settling down after the UFE? Did anyone suffer headaches too?

    It could be to do with the pain medication you would have been taking.
