Uterine Artery Embolisation

Have any of you possessors of vaginas, uteri and ovaries had a procedure called a 'Uterine Artery Embolisation' performed to eradicate a fibroid cyst?

Said cyst is attached to the back of my uterus, slightly larger than my uterus. I asked for translation of the size in inches. Approximately 2 inches in width, 2 inches in length. It's also partially obscuring my right ovary which concerns me due to a history of cancer among the women on my mother's side of the family.

I'm imagine it started growing about 2 years ago. That's when comments about how difficult it was to get my yearly pap smear sample because 'my cervix was tilted.' I'd never heard that complaint before, shrugged it off as different clinic due to relocating.

Did the Uterine Artery Embolisation work?

Would you recommend it?

I had an MRI yesterday to see if I might be a candidate for this procedure. The concept has now become more real to me and I'm starting to feel perturbation.

In short, I suspect I'm asking for personal stories to either reassure or terrify me.
