Fibroids are very common in African-American women. The only option for us in the past has been a partial or a total hysterectomy.
Embolization was the right choice…
Embolization has just been a completely liberating and different option. It’s been something that I could choose as a woman and I didn’t have to have anybody else saying, “Well, we’ve got it, get rid of your uterus.”
Having uterine fibroids was very limiting for me. It limited activities, limited plans that I had. Having an embolization has been a very freeing experience for me.
Recommends UFE as an option
I would recommend that any woman with fibroids check into the option of having an embolization versus a hysterectomy.
