Uterus ablation

I am new here and am scheduled to have uterus ablation. I am just wanting to know what I should expect. My dr said that I will be off from 2 to 4 weeks, tired and in some pain. Can anyone give me some more information?

Uterus ablation

Hi Gloworm,
I am new here too! :-)
I had a thermal ablation 5 years ago. It was wonderful for a few years but then my bleeding started to get gradually heavier. I still would do it all over again. I had almost no pain, was a little groggy from the anesthsia, and was told to take it easy for a week or two. Had quite bit of bleeding for a few days, but after that my periods were almost gone!

I am scheduled for a TAH on May 22. Apparently I had three tiny fibroids that were there when I had my ablation. They decided to grow over the years and now I have one the size of a pineapple and two others that are quite large. My super-heavy bleeding has returned so I am looking forward to my surgery (as much as anyone can LOL!) and feeling better!

If given a choice I certainly would have my ablation again - it did give me a lot of relief and was pretty easy to recover from! I know now that they have come a long way with different types of ablation and the results last much longer than they used to.

Best of luck to you!!!

Uterus ablation

I believe that I am having my uterus removed, thus stopping my periods all together. Thank you for the reply.

Uterus ablation

Hi gloworm493!

It sounds like you are getting ready for your journey to better health and that's great.

In order for us to help you the best we can, it's important for us to know what surgery you are going to be having.

An ablation is a procedure that does not remove the uterus (womb). It leaves the uterus in your body, and just removes the lining inside of it in an attempt to alleviate some conditions such as excessive menstrual bleeding, for example.

A hysterectomy is an operation that removes the uterus from the body.

Do you know what type of procedure your doctor is planning to do?

Uterus ablation

They are removing the uterus because I have many fibroids. This is supposed to stop the periods and all of the other problems that I am having. Everything else will be left so as to not creat early menepause. Does that sound correct? I hope that I am understanding what I was told.

Uterus ablation

Sounds to me like a hysterectomy not an ablation. I was told if I proceed with just an ablation I would be fine in a day or two. And they don't remove your uterus for an ablation. My ob told me he could remove my uterus and right ovary and that would be a hysterectomy.

I would get some more details on what they are going to do to you before you have it done.
