UFE Patient Story
Uterine Fibroid Embolization - Chantelle Pryor
Uterine fibroids got the best of me for more than four years. Because of the fibroids I suffered from severe anemia, and my cycle was so heavy that I had to take two days off from work every month. My stomach was extremely enlarged, and my quality of life was severely affected.
I began seeking a solution for this problem and was initially told that nothing could be done. Because my life was so negatively impacted by my symptoms, I decided to seek a second opinion and I’m so glad I did. Dr. Melissa Seely-Morgan told me she could help me, and I had Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) surgery in December 2009.
I am absolutely amazed at the results of this procedure. I lost 20 pounds immediately from the surgery, and my cycles are very light. I can work normally and I feel great!
Dr. Seely-Morgan and her staff exceeded my expectations. Everything went very well, and I wish I had done this years ago! I can live a normal life now and would unequivocally recommend this procedure to anyone. Even if you’re not initially considered a candidate, please get a second opinion like I did. It has certainly changed my life for the better!
