How long should I expect to be off work after having a Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE)?


The recovery time after having a Uterine Fibroid Embolization procedure done is relatively quick. According to Dr. Suzanne Slonim, most women are back to work within a week:

“Most women stay off of work for a week, now the literature says that you won’t really feel back to normal for about 10 days, but most women do return at one week. I’ve had a woman go back at three days, I’ve had a woman stay out two weeks, I will support whatever you need to do, I will write whatever paper work needs to be done, but again the vast majority go back at a week.”
