I will be having 'Endometerial Ablation' surgery done in 5 days. Has anyone had this procedure done, that might be willing to share their experience with me? Is it safe? Does it work? What kind of recovery time can I expect?
Yes I have had the Endometerial Ablation. This procedure does not hurt. You are put under for a very short time, and then your back to the recovery room. You will have some cramps and some spotting but nothing that will really hurt that bad. I think this procedure is very safe, your recovery time will more then likely be three days, but you will be back to normal the day after surgery. It is very non invasive. Well as for working for myself it didn't work,but I have several friends and family members that have been pain and period free, it has done wonders for them. I ended up having to have a full hysterectomy about three months after this procedure. I hope that you are like my friends and family they are all very happy, and NO Periods! Good Luck!
I had it done 2 years ago. Drastically reduced my heavy flow - but still have problem with cramps. Procedure was easy - did not feel well after - but you must stay home for the day to rest and stay in bed. No other problems since. That is the only thing it really does - slows down the bleeding - does not change anything with your cycle or ovaries. Sometimes it even stops bleeding completely - but won't rocket you to menopause because you still have ovaries. Hope it helped... Good luck
