Best Uterine Fibroid Treatment - Patient Stories
Mrs. Sharda Sharma,
a marathon runner, chose to treat her fibroids with Jaslok Hospital.
The doctors ensured that newer, minimally invasive treatment options for uterine fibroids may be better treatment options for women like Sharda.
Invasive procedures like a hysterectomy require 6 weeks to recover and according to the article,
Sharda could not afford to lose that much time.
She has considered three minimally invasive alternatives to hysterectomy: a robotic myomectomy, UAE and focused ultrasound.
Focused ultrasound using the ExAblate system, is a totally non-invasive treatment for uterine fibroids. It is an outpatient procedure designed to reduce your fibroid related symptoms, resulting in a significant improvement in your quality of life. Your uterus and cervix are not removed. overnight hospitalization is done for observation. The patient is discharged next day in the morning, and most women are able to return to everyday life within days. This is the option that Sharda chose, and that's exactly what happened for her.
She was symptom- and able to run just days after the procedure.

"The wake-up call for me was when I ran into an old friend on the sidewalk who asked, "When is it due?" The friend, of course, was referring to what she thought was a pregnancy, but was in actuality - and unbeknownst to me - two uterine fibroids. My friend's comment made me face the fact that things were just not right with my body.
Being a very active woman, who in years past worked as a personal trainer, I noticed that my stomach was enlarged, it was oddly hard, and no amount of exercise would change the situation. Finally, after confirming with my doctor that I had uterine fibroids I considered the treatment options. Hysterectomy seemed to be the only option, but I struggled with the decision, uncertain that I could deal with the drawbacks of the treatment and feeling that I wanted to "keep my original parts."
Upon learning about the ExAblate treatment from my in-laws, I knew that this was the option for me. The procedure itself was different, being on my stomach made me a bit groggy and I also felt a little back pain - but overall felt the treatment was very manageable. One year after treatment, I feel that my cycle more closely resembles my pre-fibroid cycle. I occasionally get headaches, but not nearly as intense as before treatment. My abdomen is soft, like it should be, and it has shrunk in size and my urination patterns are back to normal.
The treatment did not hinder me in any way, on the contrary, I continue with all my sport activities and I recommend this treatment to everyone."

I am constantly on the go being an adventurous woman brimming with energy. However, for most of the past decade, I have been struggling with a uterine fibroid that left me fatigued and without energy. Menstrual periods involved large clotting, and I often experienced pressure feelings and bladder issues.
Although I resolved not to let the uterine fibroid stand in my way, my symptoms worsened so significantly that this led me to investigate treatment options. Hysterectomy was not an option in my mind, but I was told the myomectomy was harder. None of the options seemed good, until I learned about the ExAblate treatment and I knew this was the treatment for me.
Two days after the treatment, I was back at work, and six weeks after my ExAblate treatment, I am already feeling much better and most noticeably the pressure is greatly reduced. I do not experience any fatigue and am thrilled to wake up with a burst of energy."
