I have read, with interest, the threads on ablation here. I had a thermal ablation last Friday. Unlike most; I had an icredible amount of pain during the ablation (I had a local plus a medical "cocktail") and for hours afterward. I also had severe vomiting and fever afterwards. I felt better Saturday morning; then worse Sat night then worse each day after. I have run a low grade (100.5) since; despite taking advil and antibiotics. I went back to the dr. today who did an exam and blood work. She said I either have blood stuck to my uterus or have an infection. I thought this would be an easy procedure and that'd I be fine on Monday. I had to cancel a work trip today because I was in so much pain. Does anyone have similar experiences or advise on how to handle? I was given a different medicine today to control the pain/cramping (had been on vicodin) as well as another 10 days of antibiotics. Thanks, in advance, for any help.
I haven't heard of, or read about, anyone with the side effects you're having. so it's definitely not the norm. I'm sorry you're having to go through the pain and I hope the problems are resolved soon.
Thanks, microwave; for your reply. I hadn't read of it either. When I had the ablation; my dr. said I reacted abnormally and had more cramping than other patients she'd had. Not sure if that is part of the problem; but I didn't think it would be this bad five days later.
bag lady since i have done tons of reading on this i can tell you that women have talked about blood being stuck infections cramping for months so you are not alone also having to get a d&c afterwards and having the ablation redone i really dont want to scare you just be aware and anything new that happens let the dr know good luck
maybe not a uti ive had a problem on and off since i got this done i feel the need to pee really bad i wasnt put under i dont remember anything because of the drugs but i also had a spinal done they gave me a choice at the hospital because of my tmj the dr said they would have to hyperextend my neck to get the tube down me and i wear a mouth gaurd 24/7 that would have had to come out
Two weeks later and I'm feeling much better The antibiotics finally kicked in and I went in today and things are looking better - yeah! I am hoping this was successful and well worth it. Thanks for the support
Nice to know someone else had extreme pain and that I was not crazy. I had my thermal ablation ( he could not do the NOVA sure due to problems in my uterus) along with a hysteroscopy and D & C on Tuesday. I had a peri -anal block along with IV sedation. My comment to the anesthesiologist beforehand was "as deep in sedation you can give me without going to the other side" I felt NOTHING during the surgery but in the recovery area my "cramps" turned out to be more like 'contractions" . I received 4 doses of IV Fentanyl along with VIcodan. I was in considerable pain that first day but was a little better the second day and a little better today.
So far, no temp no problems other than pain. I hope this is the last of the problems.
