COMMUNITY: Frequently Asked Questions
Uterus1: How is the recovery from endometrial ablation?
Dr. Craig deFreese: When people go home, it’s very common to see somebody go back to their normal activities within two or three days easily. I tell people you can do whatever you want to as long as it doesn’t hurt. I tell people I have never seen a serious complication from people going home and doing too much. I do tell them that sometimes if you’re really active, maybe you’ll get a little more bleeding, and it’s not a sign that you’re hurting anything, you’re just kind of making that tissue rub a little bit more. But it’s probably your body telling you to kind of back off and slow down a little bit here, but otherwise people can swim, take a bath, shower, they can run, they can drive whenever they feel comfortable driving.
Dr. Angela Cope: There is very little to no risk involved, and very few side effects. Really the only thing that we see and warn patients about is a discharge from the ablation for about 10 to 14 days. And that’s really the only side effect. They might have cramping for the first 24 hours after the procedure, but that’s usually mild and can be controlled with medication we prescribe.
