Embolization After Traditional Surgical Procedures

If you’ve tried other fibroid treatment methods that were unsuccessful, Uterine Fibroid Embolization can be a plausible option after other treatments have presented unsuccessful.

I had a myomectomy in 2008. I am again bleeding heavy. I know it’s the fibroids that have grown. Can I do Uterine Fibroid Embolization at this point.

Even after a myomectomy, Uterine Fibroid Embolization can still be a plausible option for fibroid treatment.  Many women who have tried myomectomy and witnessed  re-growth in their fibroids look to UFE to treat their existing fibroids.  Because the UFE procedure uses tiny  particles to successfully block off the blood supply that feed fibroids, the subsequent  chance of re-growth for these fibroids are unlikely.  Therefore, UFE patients are less likely to witness fibroid re-growth than their myomectomy counterparts.

In addition to a decreased chance of re-growth, UFE patients also experience the advantage of immediate symptom relief. Heavy bleeding, bloating, pain, pressure-all of these symptoms can immediately become lessened after the procedure.  On average, many post-operative UFE patients state that their symptoms were either eradicated or lessened following UFE.  Therefore, embolization would be an optimal choice of fibroid treatment for your situation.  Not to mention a quick recovery period of less then 7 days!
