Re: Nova Sure Endometrial Ablation

Your feelings of nervousness about general anesthesia are normal. When you get to the hospital in the pre op area, if you're really nervous you can ask them if they can give you something to relax.

I had a HER uterine ablation where I was awake and it was done by ultrasound guidance. This procedure freezes the lining of the uterus, whereas the procedure you're having done burns it. The end result is the same that the uterine lining is destroyed.

I was hoping for a better result than I had. I was having heavy bleeding and pain, and had periods that were lasting 7-10 days with heavy clotting. I have a bunch of small-medium fibroids and andomyosis (however you spell it - it's the thickened uterine lining). My periods were reduced to 4-6 days which was nice, but still have the terrible pain and heavy bleeding which is perhaps slightly lessened from before the procedure.

I was told 2.5 years ago when I had the ablation that I should have a hysterectomy instead, but I was in the middle of a number of spine surgeries so I chose this option to delay the hysterectomy. I'm now having a hysterectomy by da Vinci robot on Tuesday, Feb 14.

Best wishes to you - you'll do fine!
