2019: Lavh recommended for enlarged uterus and fibroids? Also looking into UFE. (2019)

Thank you Kelelach. Did they break-up your uterus before they took it vaginally? My uterus measured 16 cm so I was worried about the vaginal hysterectomy if my uterus was too large for that procedure.

I had UFE 3 years ago (I am 51 now) and while the fibroids shrank, my uterus really did not, so there is potential for all sorts of things.

I will say I am still glad i did the UFE, which for me was the best option for me personally at the time, and it did stop the periods and thus my anemia resolved.

unfortunately, my bulk and pressure symptoms have changed and worsened enough that i am going to have a hysterectomy in March.

I had a hysteroscopic d&c about a year after UFE. It felt like uterus was full of fluid and it was! It was thick with fibroid debris accumulated inside. This made a difference in bulk. I think UFE in itself resulted in chronic inflammation in my case. Seems tender.
