Hydrothermal Edometiral Ablation (Uterine Cauterization) (TMI)

My wife is going to undergo the a uterine cauterization technique called “Hydrothermal Endometrial Ablation” (HTA) in a couple weeks and she’s concerned with recovery times, anesthesia methods, etc.

As far as anesthesia, the interwebs suggest it can range from “local + sedation” through epidural and up to a general.

Any personal experiences to share that I can pass along?

My wife had that done. It was outpatient surgery.

It went very well. She says it was no worse than a moderately severe menstruation. Mild cramping afterwards, treated with ibuprofen. She had general anesthesia.

My best to your wife.
