so basically I turned 40 and my hormones turned on me is how I felt. I was used to having a 2-3 day menstrual cycle in which I could use junior tampons or liners. all of a sudden I was bleeding profusely and using super plus tampons that couldn't stop the flow. I had a vaginal ultrasound and was diagnosed w 3 fibroids 2 interuterine and 1 submucosal. first attempt was to take birth control consecutively, didn't work. next attempt was mirena the IUD, it worked for about a month then the flood gates opened. upon my own research I found ufe of course the gyno in my office wanted to do a hysterectomy. so I had the MRI to find the exact size and locations. I had ufe done July 26 and I will say 6 days out I can't complain. honestly my iron level was 19 which is crazy to think I was still functioning but over the last 3 weeks I had become exhausted.
but back to ufe, so happy I did it my interventional radiologist is phenomenal explained the procedure had me start taking ibuprofen the day before. I was put under w I guess twilight versed and fentynal. woke up I was fine stayed overnight in the hospital continued with ibuprofen and percocet if needed for breakthrough pain didn't need it. also given a heating pad for my abdomen. I was discharged the next day mild mild cramping but low and behind no bleeding maybe some breakthrough bleeding when wiping that's it. the doctor continued me on ibuprofen every 6 hours for 7 days. I stopped today and actually went to the gym. I almost feel a 100% just been sleeping a lot but feel like I've gotten my life back.
I read all the blogs and was scared but if you do it ask the right questions success rate and all the goodies. there was a chance one of my fibroids WS being fed by my ovary artery but it wasn't so that was my fear.
so far great success hopefully the results continue
