I had my uterine ablation done this past March and it is the greatest thing I have ever done. :yelclap:
I went from being in terrible pain during my periods, bleeding anywhere from 3-7 days during my actual period and spotting in between.
The Dr. who did the procedure said I had a blockage in one of my tubes and some small cysts so that was probably why I was having so much pain.
He took pictures before the procedure was done and after and it was so neat to see the difference.
I had to laugh at dh, who did not have a clue of what he was looking at when the dr. showed him the pictures.
I went the hosptial at 8 am and was back home by 1 pm... I was in recovery about an hour, but a bonus was not having to be intabated. I woke up in recovery from a wonderful sleep, feeling really refreshed and relieved, with some cramping similar to labor pains, but was quickly alleviated with pain meds...
When I got home from the hospital, I put a thermacare mentrual heat pad on an and slept for a couple of hours. After that i took Advil prn.
Anyways, I was up and about the next day with no real side effects other than a bit sleepy and really no bleeding/spotting, nor cramping. I was well enough to attend some of my classes the next day, but climbing steps was a bit much...
The lasting effects have been very minimal spotting for a period which I only need a panty-liner for and it lasts for about a day
The only downside, you still get the PMS...
