I had my UFE on 12/12/13. I didn't read alot about in on the internet because I didn't want to get freaked out. My doctor did the procedure through an artery in my left wrist. The procedure went well, but the pain afterwards was a MONSTER. I was advised that the pain would be like labor pain and that is true. I had those labor pains for 5 days. My pain medication (Toradol and Percocet) didn't take the pain away. On day 2, I called the doctor's office and was advised to take the pills more often than prescribed. The adjustment helped, but I was out of pills by day 5. When I exhausted all of my pills, I switched to 800 mil Ibuprophen. I initiall took a week off from work, but I wasn't ready to return to work on the following MOnday because I spent 5 days fighting pain and two days with minimum movement. I added two additional sick days and they were what was needed. Today is day 10 post procedure. I already feel better. I am looking forward to monitoring what happens. I am prayerful that my issues were resolved by having the UFE.
