Re: Ovarian CA - can a D&C find it?
Oh and I forgot to mention .. I do not think that the cervix thing is related to your bloating. When I had my endometrial biopsy, my cervix was also very firm (I have never had children so it has not been stretched out). My doctor still managed to get the biopsy by using a clamp to hold the cervix open while he took the sample. The clamp was not very comfortable but a couple of minutes of holding my breath produced the desired result. Your doctor said you need a D & C because if an endometrial biopsy is not possible, this is the next best thing. A D & C will have the added benefit of looking at almost all of the lining of your uterus because your lining will be cleaned out and tested. You may, however, want to try to find someone else to take a biopsy as this is less invasive.
Hope this helps.
