  • Fibroids1: How long does it take to recover from the UFE procedure?
    Dr. John Lipman: I tell my patients it is an outpatient procedure, meaning most of the patients come into our center and leave the same day. Of the last 300 fibroid embolizations performed at the center, all but five went home the same day, and those five went home the next morning.
    Dr. Eunice Moon: There are some patients who want to know when they are going to be able to go back to work. This is an important and valid question. We have had patients go back to work within one week but most of our patients end up going back to work within two weeks. The big concerns include how they are going to feel, how long will it take to recover, when can they drive - all of which are really pertinent to their lifestyles. They want to get back to their former lives. These are the most common questions asked.
