Read about a 24 year old women who, after a myomectomy, is looking for an alternative to hysterectomy to treat her returning fibroids.
Q: I’ve suffered with fibroids since I was 24 yrs, had a myomectomy in 1992. Currently I’m suffering from large fibroid tumors and was told I need a hysterectomy, but I’m looking for a less invasive approach.
If you are looking into a less invasive approach, then your best bet would be to look into UFE, or Uterine Fibroid Embolization. To date, this is the only non-surgical procedure (accepted by insurance companies) that is used to treat fibroids and is an optimal option for individuals, like you, that seek a less invasive alternative to traditional surgical methods.
Among other advantages, UFE patients experience a shorter recovery period of no more than 7 days and immediate symptom relief. If you would like to know more about the embolization procedure and its advantages, we encourage you to browse our website. You will be able to view videos of the procedure, read about how embolization can protect your fertility, and view some frequently asked questions. Also, you will have access to a thorough, step-by-step account of what to expect before and after the procedure, recorded by one of our very own patients.
Hopefully you will be able to use our website as a resource so that you can clear up any questions that you have about fibroids and the embolization procedure. Additionally, we encourage you to call the Fibroid Treatment Collective at 866-362-6463 so that you may speak with one of our health professionals. They will be more than happy to answer any of your standing questions.
