    Has anyone had experience/thoughts on this? What about endometrial ablation?

    Initially, I thought the embolization is a no brainer for treatment but then realized that the artery is blocked with a polyvinyl alcohol. Ew. I am okay with taking stuff out but not with putting stuff in.

    My mom had the procedure done around 5 years ago. It went great, she hasn't had any issues with bleeding since the prodedure and the fibroid tumors shrunk alot.
