How do I prepare for my procedure?

What will happen during my procedure?

What should I expect after my procedure?

You may have some mild cramping after the procedure. This should go away soon. Your healthcare provider may tell you to take acetaminophen or an NSAID pain medicine. You should be able to go home the same day. Plan to rest when you get home. You can return to your regular activities within 2 days or as directed.

What are the risks of the MTRS?

Even after treatment, new fibroids may grow and need to be removed. During this procedure, your uterus may be torn, or your cervix may be damaged. You may have fluid overload. This means your body may absorb too much fluid produced during the procedure. Your healthcare provider will have to stop if this happens, and you will need another procedure to finish the tissue removal. You may bleed more than expected. This can become life-threatening.
