Tried other options of fibroid removal with no success and looking to explore other options? Read on to find out how UAE may be the answer to your fibroid problems!
I am 42 years old and live in Cyprus Island in Europe. In the past 10 years, I have had 4 Myomectomies to remove about 16 fibroids. Now, again, 4 more are rapidly growing and the doctor suggested hysterectomy. I do not want to remove my uterus. I read some of the stories of your patients and was wondering if there is a cure for me without removing my uterus.
As a patient, it is extremely important that you explore all of your options before making a decision. Being that you are looking for an alternative to hysterectomy and have already undergone several myomectomies with no success of halting fibroid growth, it is suggested that you look into Uterine Fibroid Embolization. UAE not only prevents your current fibroids from growing by blocking their blood supply, but it also allows you to experience immediate symptom relief.
In addition to immediate symptom relief, you can enjoy a more speedy recovery. Embolization patients experience a shorter recovery period of only 5-7 days, remarkably shorter than the 6-8 week recovery period that patients undergoing more traditional procedures often experience. This, in turn, allows UAE patients to return to their day-to-day activities much quicker.
Aside from the other advantages that UAE presents, many patients also favor the fact that it is less invasive than the more traditional methods of fibroid removal and it leaves your uterus intact. With embolization there are no scalpels, sutures or scarring involved and patients are not exposed to the risks of general anesthetic. The procedure is simple, safe, and non-surgical, often leaving it as an optimal choice for women still interested in child birth.
