Has anyone had more than one embolization?

Hi all,
I haven't been here in a while. I'm having my second embolization in a week or so. My first one was a year ago, exactly. The bleeding was helped a LOT, but the size of fibroids remained unchanged. They've started to grow again, so I need to do something. I got my embolization report and had a second opinion. The embolics that were used have been discovered to be prone to infarction failure (killing the fibroid) and my fibroids were only 31% infarcted. Fibroids that aren't completely dead can grow new blood vessels. So it's worth trying again. I have a 22 week uterus, and three grapefruit sized fibroids (plus). Oh yes, and a cyst on my ovary that we're monitoring with ultrasound.

Just wanted to hear if anyone else has had more than one embo and what your results were.
