I am going to have an procedure on my upper thigh on Wednesday. The last embolization that I had was 20 years ago. I am not in pain now but my aorta is enlarged. I have an amazing interventional radiologist so I am hoping for a great outcome. I have never experienced alcohol and Onyx embolizations. She said it would be a 4 to 5 hour procedure and will be the first embolization out of about 6. Has anyone experienced this and what was the pain level and the recovery time?
