Comment from: Ms. T, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: May 30

I had NovaSure procedure done in August 2011. I was in severe pain (fetal position pain) yesterday, awakened to use the bathroom at 3:37 a.m. As I got up to flush, the toilet was full of blood, I have not seen blood since 2011. Of course I panicked until I read all of the posts. I do not have any health insurance at this time, someone had mentioned that the pain is indescribable, it is very excruciating. I am 50 and if I knew that this was going to happen I would have passed up the procedure.

I had NovaSure ablation 11 days ago. Eighteen hours of cramps that didn"t stop on the day of the procedure. That eased up by day 2. I found that the more I did the more likely I was to have cramps. I was extremely fatigued for about 7 days. Right now I am experiencing discharge that is getting heaver by the day. I have also noticed some swelling, like water retention in my abdomen and feet and hands. So far I am pleased. I was warned of the side effects of the procedure by my doctor.
