Ask4UFE has announced the #LoveYourUterus campaign to encourage women with painful fibroids to share their stories of health and healing. Uterine fibroids often result in women having hysterectomies because they are unaware of uterine fibroid embolization (UFE), which is a less invasive procedure.
Lynne Haze, a prominent radio personality in Dallas, USA, chose to share her recent experience with UFE so that other women in similar situations know that there is another option when dealing with painful fibroids. Suzanne Slonim, Precision Vascular and Interventional, recently performed the UFE procedure for Haze.
UFE provides relief from symptomatic fibroids, while also allowing women to avoid the higher risks and much longer recovery from surgery. Most importantly, with UFE, women keep their uterus, which is a significant and often unappreciated advantage over hysterectomy due to the prevalent consequences many women suffer post-hysterectomy.
“I want women to know that they have a choice, that there is a choice that you do not have to spend six weeks of your life laid up in bed,” says Haze. “That there is a choice that this could be something where if you still want to have children, you can have children. You do not have to have your uterus removed.”
