Due to have this procedure in a few weeks. I'd be interested to know how long you had off work and what the recovery was like.

I've been advised by my Consultant that I'll need a week off work, he also mentioned that the pain after the procedure of quite bad. I've also read some horror stories regarding excessive bleeding and expelling the fibroids afterwards!

I'd be grateful for any info/experiences (no matte how awful!)

I've just been diagnosed with fibroids - had a scan to confirm, back to the GP next week to find out what the options are. Will watch this thread with interest.
