HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR FIBROID SYMPTOMS TO DISAPPEAR?

Following UFE, pain will decrease on the second day and most patients will become well enough to go home. However, return to normal active life may take 5-7 days. Because, after UFE, some patients may have typical complaints of “postembolization syndrome”, such as nausea, pain, fatigue and lack of apetite, and this may last for about one week.After this period, fibroid symptoms begin to decrease; heavy menstural bleeding will generally return to normal shortly after UFE, but at times, this may take weeks or months. Sometimes, the patient may not have mensturation for a couple of months and then starts to have menses normally. After UFE, it will take at least several months for the patient to notice a decrease in the compression symptoms such as urinary constipation, bloating and constipation. The rate of symptom improvement following UFE depends on the size, number and location of the fibroids. The symptomatic improvement may continue for upto two years, but in most patients, it reaches its maximum level in one year.
