I had my Uterine Embolization surgery on Saturday, and the Radiologist ran out of the particles/substance that he uses to block the arteries. I was in theatre for approx. 4 hours and he was unable to complete the procedure.
I am in severe pain on occasions, and have been told that I might have to have the procedure done again to finish off the other side of my uterus, which now measures in total around 26cm in length with numerous fibroids growing in and outside. I can't believe how crazily fast these fibroids have grown in such a short period of time.
Has anyone else had this surgery carried out more then once and how soon after the first time did they have it done?
And other then Oral Morphine, what pain relief is everyone on, or has worked most effectively for you? Morphine is having too many bad side effects, but at least it gets rid of the pain, nothing else seems to work.
I just want to know how long I will be bed bound for, I'm only 39, and it's so disheartening as I'm usually really active. I'm having to deal with the pain of the fibroids squashing all of my internal organs, which is adding to the discomfort.
Just good now to talk to others who are in the same boat, because I can't describe it to anyone else.
