endometrial ablation

Has anyone ever had this procedure done prior to the hysterectomy? I have 2 girls that are very active & we're constantly running around and my summers off. I really dread the thought of being laid up overly long. I know "Cry me a river".
But over the past three years I have taken care of other family members and I'm being extremely selfish this year.

endometrial ablation

I had an endometrial ablation in May of 1999. I had it because of fibroids and excessive bleeding. I had 2 C-sections, a tubal ligation, and a D & C prior to the ablation. The ablation worked very well for awhile. For over a year and a half I had no bleeding, discomfort or pain. Then I gradually began to bleed again and the pain returned. I knew that there was a possibility this could happen because my fibroids had grown into the wall of the uterus and just removing the lining of the uterus was not enough. I had a LAVH on 2/8/02 (uterus and cervix removed, kept both ovaries). I have no regrets about either surgery. If you have any specific questions please let me know. Take care.

endometrial ablation

I tried to (the thermal balloon kind), but turns out there were fibroids in the way, which is how I finally got approved for a hyst.

There is an excellent site about ablations - quite a lot like this one, but smaller. Lots of good info. They have boards where women at various post-ablation milestones (1, 2, 3... months, 1, 2, 3 years...) post the kind of results they are having (no bleeding, getting heavier, getting lighter...). Check it out:

I had an endometrial ablation in January 2001. It worked a little but certainly not to what I wanted or expected. Still was bleeding for 8 to 12 days and had heavy clotting. I ended up have a hysterctomy in September of 2001. It was the best thing I ever did for me.

I do have a co-worker who had an endometrial ablation and she has not bled for over 3 years. SO for some women it can really work.

Talk to your Dr and see what options are best for you. I can tell you that I went back to work 3 days after my ablation.

Hope this helps

Take care

endometrial ablation

hang in there! I had an endometrial ablation in April of this year.
The support I used through was at http://home.att.net/~endometrial_ablation/
an excellent web site similar to this- filled with info.

My next period was a little lighter-not quite was I expected..then I asked my doctor about the pain w/dh. Unknown to me, the EA is just for bleeding(my opinion). After my first post EA period, I had an MRI which diagnosed adenmyosis..and from there I had a TVH & BSO (L) on 5-17-02. I am 31 years old with two active children. At this point I have no regrets, and the children have been very helpful. I am on my 5 week post op and doing great. A few minor bumps in the road. Everyone's recovery period is different.

Good luck, hope this helps
