So, the fibroids are here again and continue growing and growing. I am 36 years old, and have no children. I hope to have children in the future. I am not certain which option to choose....2nd Myomectomy or UFE?
I had my first myomectomy in August 2012. I had about 12-14 fibroids removed. The largest fibroid was about 12-14 cm. The recovery was about 6 weeks. I remember being in the worst pain ever during the 1st week after surgery. I told myself I would never want to go through this again.
I had an ultrasound about 3-4 years later, and it appeared that I had multiple fibroids. I believe they may have been there when I had my myomectomy in 2012, but just too small to see to remove. They may have grew over time, which leads me to having to deal with them at this point. They are not as large as the fibroids in 2012, but are causing heaving bleeding, swelling of legs, anemia, and enlarged abdominal area.
I'm looking into the UFE treatment, which would treat all fibroids. I am concerned about fertility after the UFE treatment. There are known pregnancies after UFE treatment, but I have read that it could possibly cause complications with fertility.
Anyone who has been or is in the same situation?
Thanks for any information
