Dr. Lee & Accesa Recommendation

For more than five years, I suffered from multiple fibroids. They were causing pressure, very heavy bleeding, and affecting my bladder control. They were so big that my uterus was the size of a 14-16 week pregnancy. I was having VERY heavy periods that lasted 7-8 days with four days super heavy days where I had to use super plus sized tampons backed up by large pads. An MRI showed at least eleven fibroids. I knew I had to take action to remove them, so I made an appointment with my obgyn at the UCLA’s fibroid center to get a

Two Year Anniversary Since Acessa Procedure

Today marks the 2 years anniversary since my Acessa procedure. 730 days…17,520 hours…1,051,200 minutes without fibroids. On this day Dr. Bruce Lee started the process of giving me back my life. On this day at 11:56 a.m. I was wheeled into the operating room and Dr. Lee asked me if I was scared. I was honest and told him that I was a little scared. I’d never had any type of surgery before, so I was a little nervous about going under. He assured me that he and his crew were going to take good care if me, and asked

Dr. Lee and Acessa Recommendation

I suffered from multiple fibroids for over five years. They were causing pressure, very heavy bleeding, and affecting my bladder control. They were so big that my uterus was the size of a 14-16 week pregnancy. An MRI showed at least eleven fibroids. I knew I had to take action to remove them, so I made an appointment with my obgyn at the UCLA’s fibroid center to get a myomectomy. This surgery would have required a three day hospital stay, the use of pain killers and antibiotics to recover, 8-12 recovery period and no chance of having a normal shaped

My Fibroid Story

First, let me say if I had first known about Dr. Lee and the Acessa procedure before, I would not have wasted a year trying for everything else. I strongly believe this treatment should be available to all women with fibroids as a safe alternative to more traditional treatments like myomectomies and UFEs. Dr. Lee and his staff are knowledgeable, friendly, and personable. As a scared woman not knowing if I could keep my uterus, I was made to feel supported and safe and taken care of. Here is my story… In August of 2015 I went to my local

Saying Acessa Was The Right Choice Is An Understatement

I can’t recommend radiofrequency ablation, the Acessa Procedure enough. I turned to Dr. Bruce Lee, a patient, kind, personable, and very experienced doctor in treating my eight fibroids through the radiofrequency ablation (Acessa) procedure. My symptoms included a large bloated abdomen, severe blood loss (menorrhagia), frequent urination (every half hour), dyspareunia (sexual pain), recurrent constipation/diarrhea (fibroid on top of my bowel), lower back pain, and an excessively large uterus. After just two hours and two incision sites and one or more puncture sites for the Assessa needle, I walked out of the outpatient facility and through the lobby to our

How Fibroids Controlled My Life

Hello. I am going to tell you a story about how non-malignant tumors had a such a negative effect on my life. Fibroids controlled where and when I went to work, school, Church, the grocery store, and even to visit loved ones. Early Years – Pre-op Most of my life my menstrual cycles were always heavy, even in my teens, but they got progressively worse as I got older. In 1992 and 1993 I suffered miscarriages in a span of 11 months. I thought it was just not meant for me to be a mom at that time. It never

There is another option. There is hope. There is Acessa!

I was diagnosed with uterine fibroids over 12 years ago. Wanting to preserve my ability to have children, my only option at that time was a myomectomy. The doctor explained that this was a temporary fix and that the fibroids would most likely grow back, but I had no idea how true this would be for me. I underwent the myomectomy, which was a very invasive surgery that landed me in the hospital for almost a week. The pain was indescribable and my recovery took several months. Almost immediately, fibroids began to appear again. Over the course of the next

The Acessa Procedure is Revolutionary for Women

The Acessa Procedure is revolutionary for women. Acessa is an option that is now available, possibly allowing a woman to avoid a hysterectomy. I had the Acessa procedure 10 days ago with Dr. Bruce Lee. I am feeling amazing! Right after the laparoscopic surgery, I immediately noticed a change in urinary issues I had been experiencing. I am hopeful that my frequent urinary track infections will be resolved. I also noticed that a continuous pressure, tightness and fullness above my pelvic bone was gone. I felt unexpected relief with a certain type of lower back pain I have had for

Wholeheartedly Recommend Dr. Lee and the Acessa procedure

I am beyond grateful to have found such an amazing doctor and procedure for the treatment of my uterine fibroids. The experience has been a great and truly liberating one for me. Initially, not knowing anything about the Acessa procedure I had many questions and concerns, which were quickly remedied after meeting Dr. Lee. He is an incredibly dedicated, knowledgeable and through doctor, with a warm and comforting bedside manner (truly a wonderful man). Any initial hesitations subsided and paled in comparison to my concerns about having a hysterectomy; as this was the recommended treatment option offered by my initial
