Uterine Fibroid Embolisation

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi all I had my UFE on 18 Jan 2016. My last period was last week and I had flooding issues it happened twice in one day.

Since then my tummy has actually started shrinking a lot. So I'm confused. Why would it shrink so much but the periods get bad again. (I had to take Mefamic acid to stop the blood flow). I wondered if anyone else has experienced this post UFE.

      Oh no. That must be so disappointing. I hope you are able to receive a more effective treatment. How big is the fibroid? I just had an open myomectomy which was successful. I nearly went to get UAE but the second gynae I saw advised against it for fertility reasons (I am 25).
