stressed a bit--uterine cancer?

Hi, everyone~~~

I'm scheduled for a D&C and hysteroctomy (sp?) soon...had bleeding (heavy, heavy with lots o'pain last month) when i thought I was post-menopausal, ya know?

At first, I thought it was a regular period; i had been very, very stressed and on some meds for the past year and 1/2--plus hadn't been eating regularly. My thoughts were that since I was off the meds, i had simply started my period again (i'll be 52 this year & mom had meno. later in life, too).

Well !!! When i told my new doc this (the old one blew it off), he pretty much flipped out and said he was treating it like cancer until it was proven otherwise...hmmmm...she said~~~

Had an ultrasound 2 days ago...thickened uterine lining and they saw somethin' else, eh? I'm scheduled for a D&C and...well I already said that, didn't I? I'm also getting a colonoscopy next week (been bleeding from "there," too...aarrgghhh).

My mind is a little confused right now, so bear with me, ok?

I started "bleeding" again tonite and my pelvic area is becoming quite painful; I DON'T look forward to what I went thru last month, folks. (I was down and out for the better part of a week). I WILL be asking for pain meds, believe me, if it's anything like last month...

Here's what's really confusing to me: IF I'm truly menopausal--and the bleeding was abnormal (actually hemorrhaging)--then WHY am I bleeding again during what I would expect to be my actual "cycle?" (I'm only a few days off). I mean, could it not be that I really DID start my regular period again? And, due to the stress and--what I would describe as a form of anorexia--I had just stopped my cycle for that length of time?

OK, off again on a related subject...Has anyone else had experience with uterine cancer and can enlighten me as to what they've been through?

I'm a bit numb about the whole thang, tell ya the truth...A little worry running through my veins, yet, I'm not hysterical or anything...

Appreciate any comments/advise/experience...

Thank you!

Re: stressed a bit--uterine cancer?

Hi,

I just wanted to stop by and give you a hug. I'm sorry that you are having to go through all of this.

I think if you post this on the Uterine Cancer board, you may get more responses.

Good luck with everything. You're in my prayers.

Hugs,

Lisa
