Hi everyone, thought I'd post a wee update to give some encouragement to anyone unsure about having UFE. Although I had a longer, more difficult recovery than expected after UFE, 6-8 weeks after my op my symptoms of bloating and pain had gone. I was still worried about having a period though. However, I've just finished my first period since the op and I'm so happy! I'm back to having periods like I had in my 20's - 4 days, no real pain to talk of, no flooding, just light to moderate bleeding. Before my op I was having to take 2 days off work every month because of the flooding, clots and pain I was in. I really wish I had gone for UFE sooner rather than suffering for years! I'm so grateful that I'm one of the lucky ones that UFE has worked for, Aileen
