Wow where did the time go? I had my ablation 11 years ago and I am happy to report it is STILL working! I am 43 now and I do still have a few small fibroids my doctor and I watch but thankfully they have not caused me any symptoms, yay! I still get periods but they are extremely light and I feel so blessed for this. I had a Thermachoice Uterine Balloon Therapy performed way back in February 2000 and I am so grateful I didn't have to get a hysterectomy. It was hard emotionally for me the first year post-ablation since I didn't trust the procedure. I wasn't sure what the outcome would be and I was just so sick and tired of those heavy periods I had experienced pre-ablation. I was so afraid the heavy bleeding would come back but it did not thank God. I don't think about any of this much anymore, I haven't in years really but if I do think about it, it is with extreme gratitude that I was a candidate and that the procedure worked for me.
I keep this web site and the forums here since I had promised God if he helped me find a way out of that hell that was my life when I had menorrhagia I would show my appreciation and help others. I stuck to my word and will continue to do so. I have always loved to help people and I am grateful women find this place and it helps them. That truly warms my heart!
I am in perimenopause now and it is, well, it is plain awful but what can we do?! I try my best to deal with it and not let it get to me much. My plan is when I enter menopause to go the natural route with no HRT. As long as my symptoms don't get incapacitating and effect the quality of my life I won't take anything. Crossing fingers here. =)
I highly recommend this procedure to any woman who is a good candidate for it and whose doctor recommends it to her.
Wishing you peace in this journey!
