Yesterday, I had my follow-up with my GYN-OB. I went to here because my stomach has not gone done since the birth of my twins 17 months ago. I told her that I still look about 5 months pregnant. Well, I was diagnosed with Diastasis Recti and I was also ordered to get an ultrasound. Well, the ultrasound found I large fibroid (which I already knew I had) which was now the size of a large grapefruit behind my uterus. She recommended a hysterectomy since my uterus was so large. I am very reluctant to have a hysterectomy because I heard so many bad things associated with the surgery. I asked her about Uterine Fibroid Embolization and was told that my fibroid was too large. She recommended that if didn't want the surgery right now, she could prescribe Zolodex.
I went online and researched my options and a lot of the literature states that my fibroid is not too large for the procedure. I also kind of reluctant to do it because of anesthesia. I had a laser myomectomy about 3 years and I had to have breathing treatments because I had trouble coming out of the anesthesia.
Anyway, has anyone had any experience with UFE for large fibroid? Did you have any complications? Was there any difference in the size of the fibroid after the procedure.
Any responses would be great since I have to make some decisions soon about my treatment. Thanks!
