Recovering from Uterine Fibroid Treatment

Uterine fibroids can significantly reduce a woman's quality of life due to troublesome and painful symptoms. Fortunately, there is a minimally invasive non-surgical procedure available in Atlanta, known as uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) or Uterine artery embolization (UAE).

Immediately after the embolization procedure, patients rest for four to six hours at the medical facility. In very rare instances a patient may need to stay overnight and would be discharged the following morning

Patients who undergo UFE can expect to be in pain for the next 5-7 days. Each day in the recovery will improve from the previous one. The patient will receive a narcotic and an anti-inflammatory to help with this. The large majority of women return to their normal activities within seven to 10 days.
