I have several large fibroids.  They cause no pain, I do not have heavy bleedings, but they make me feel bloated and my stomach swell as if pregnant.  I suspect they cause me loose bladder.
 
I read that there is a new, non-invasive treatment called embolization in SGH.  Has anyone done that?  What is the cost and recovery period?

Don't know about the new procedure, but I too had fibroids previously. Did laparoscopy to have them removed.
No problem now.
Why not just call SGH and enquire? It's SGH - should be good, and reasonable cost too!
