which option to choose?

Hi I am new here! I have fibroids which I have heavy bleeding huge clots and anemia from. Had d&c with myomectomy 3-03, did well for almost a year now returning and worsening of symptoms. Gyn doc says hysterectomy or UFE uterine fibroid embolization. Cannot decide which is the way to go. reading message boards on both sites and still very confused. thanks

This is such a personal decision that only you with your doctor can decide. My doctor and I discussed the option of embolization but we both agreed that for me the TAH/BSO was the way to go. There were a number of reasons why this decision was best for me and I have had no regrets. You need to research both and then discuss them at length with your doctor to make the best decision for you.

This surgery is major and has a long recuperation period. You must weigh this along with everything else. I wish you well in making the right choice for you.

Good luck to you.

Please seek a second opinion. Another option, depending upon your medical condition and your age might be a myomectomy, just the removal of the fibroids from the uterus.

There is another post you may wish to read: https://www.hystersisters.com/vb2/sho...hreadid=128225

It is a very personal decision. Best wishes to you.
