I had uterine artery embolization completed a little over 4 weeks ago for treatment of large fibroids. My initial recovery appears typical when compared to what i've read and I had my first menstrual cycle 1 week ago. My problem is that I've now started to cramp (varying from mild to moderate pain) accompainied by intermittent low back pain on the right and no discharge to speak of. I had a follow up with my gyno Friday (all talk, no physical assessment or pelvic exam ...)and he said this would happen as the fibroid shrank. I guess I thought I wouldn't cramp at this point and if present it would yield passage of fibroid particles which I'm not seeing currently. I'm wondering if this is normal, if others have experienced this and how long I should expect it to last. I'd like to add that although my interventional radiologist was well experienced, I am my gyno's first patient to recieve this procedure, referred myself for the UAE and selected my own IR. I guess my confidence in my gyno is not solid. Any thoughts?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
