How complete is an endometrial ablation? Do you still have some residual symptoms afterward?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Varies

The amount of tissue destroyed varies with different ablation procedures.
With most there is usually a very small amount of tissue that remains, which explains why not everyone stops bleeding altogether.
