A Uterine Fibroid Embolisation requires only an overnight hospital stay 🙏 Providing significant relief from fibroids-related symptoms, here’s what you can expect post-procedure:

🌸 Bleeding from the uterus stops almost immediately.

🌸 After the procedure, there is a dull ache in the lower abdomen. This is similar to bad period pain which is why we admit patients overnight for pain control.

🌸 Improving by the next day, this pain is easily controlled with medication and disappears over a short period of time.

🌸 The skin incision used to perform the embolisation is so small that there is no need for stitches and is almost invisible within a few weeks.

🌸 Patients will go home as soon as they are comfortable and pain-free the day after the procedure
