Comment from: Nandin, 35-44 Female (Caregiver) Published: September 09

I had a NovaSure endometrial ablation on the 18th and I have been bleeding ever since. My doctor is so full of herself, patting herself on her back because it's 'the best one she's ever done!' that she doesn't care that I had cervicitis, a urinary tract infection and constant bleeding. I'm seeing a pain management doctor on Tuesday.

I had endometrial ablation procedure performed 9 days ago using NovaSure under general anesthesia. I had no pain and very minor intermittent cramping first day. There was no need for medicines. I had very light watery/bloody discharge first week, then clear. The only side effect I'm experiencing is stomach bloat, particularly after I eat. Could be the anesthesia is still working out of my system as I am petite. I will discuss with physician at post-operation checkup.
