Six weeks after Uterine Fibroid Embolisation

Posted , 3 users are following.

I am 39. I had the ufe procedure on 8th August 2017. My largest fibroid is 11 cm x 12 cm and presses on my bladder. I am still getting a dull pain and after a lot of movement I do get sharp cramping pain.  I do feel achy at times and I get more hot flushes now.   Did anyone else experience this?

    It could be your fibroids slowly shrinking. As far as the sharp pain, I would let your dr know. I don't remember having any pain two weeks after my procedure. I'm 43 and  As far as hot flashes, mine increased too. My fibroids are half in size now and I haven't gotten my period in 6-7 weeks now... very unusual for me but I know I'm in perimenopause for sure because of all my symptoms. I really do think everyone experiences something a little different after UFE depending on their own body and age.

      Thanks for replying. I am thinking the same that the fibroids are probably slowly shrinking, so I am trying to go with it as it were.  I am still taking ibuprofen and buscopan as the dull pain doesn't let up.  I just feel I should be more pain free by now with only pain now and again as the fibroids shrink.
