Got a call yesterday from consultant secretary to go to appointment this afternoon. I met with consultant and he said having embolisation for me and others is about 85% effective. I'm going to go with this option. He said I should get a call next week about a date but hopes in September/ October. My iron levels are low also so taking a supplement last few days. That's my update !

Hi,
I am suffering from fibroids as well. I have tried Mirena but fell out after 2 months. I was refereed to see specialist for embolisation. I am looking for someone who had it done already to share their experience. I was reading a lot about the procedure. I know this is the best option bu I am worried about complications (pain, early menopause). I have my appointment tomorrow.

Delighted to hear all went well (hope the pain goes away soon). I had the MRI done and the results should be with the hospital in a week, then I am due to meet with doc in Holles Street early next month to try set a date for my procedure.
