The doctor performing the UAE procedure will explain, in detail, the technique involved.He or she will also explain the potential risks involved and will answer all your questions before and after the procedure.
My stay in the hospital after my UFE was overnight (23 hours), and the recovery was only a few days at home. Most women return to work after 1 week instead of the 8 weeks required recovering from surgery.
