I had a Novasure ablation done on 5/14/09 as an outpatient. Excellent experience with minimal cramps discomfort that went away after 1 pain killer. Had my 2 week check up today and the doctor is "very optimistic" about my results. I am 50 years old and have a good sized submucosal fibroid. I am at day 27 of my cycle now and the doctor said if I am going to get a period post ablation it should be soon.
I am noticing my belly is kind of bloated. Pants a little tight to zip. Is this normal? My doctor said if the ablation does not take care of my heavy periods, (I have been hemorrhaging for about 4 years with clots lately the size of tennis balls) I will need a hysterectomy. Had to go to the ER 3 weeks ago because of extreme bleeding, huge clots and almost passing out. Red blood count dropped from 42 to 27. Has anyone had successful results with novasure having fibroids?
