Questions You Should Ask Your Doctor

It is important for women to weigh their treatment options carefully. Women should conduct personal research, speak to other women and consult with their gynecologist and an interventional radiologist (IR) (doctor who uses imaging to conduct minimally invasive procedures to treat conditions including fibroids).

  • How often is the procedure successful?
  • How many UFE’s have you performed?
  • What results should I expect?
  • What are typical complications and how often do they occur?
  • How will I feel during and after the procedure?
  • How long should I expect to be off work?
  • How long should I expect to stay in the hospital?
  • What kind of follow-up care is typical and who manages it?
  • Will I be able to get pregnant after UFE?
  • Will my insurance cover the procedure?
