Hi I am 37 years old I have been diagnosed with a 20 cm uterine fibroid and went for the UFE. I am on day four post-op and I'm still in pain and discomfort and have been taking my medications religiously as prescribed by the surgeon, using a heating pad and resting lots. The surgery wasn't so bad but the aftermath is about if work and I definitely would not call this a non invasive procedure as this takes a whole lot out of you. I just wanted to get some feedback from those who have had a large fibroid on what to expect over the next while on recovery. I feel as if my stomach and uterus has swollen bigger than pre op and wanted to know if this is common, should I worry, should I go to the GYN??? Is this part of recovery where it gets worse before it gets better?? And how much would it shrink and when would it start shrinking?? I know all body types are different and just wanted some feedback and will definitely update with progress!
