I was scheduled for a hysterectomy next week, and 2 days ago I did my pre op bloodscreening, and EKG, yesterday I got a call from doctors office, saying my surgery was canceled, due to something the doctor found in my blood screening, and that I also needed a pap smear before surgery. The receptionist wouldnt/couldnt tell me what and why they found, to stop surgery. She said the doctor would call me. I am anemic, and taking iron right now.
I have 2 questions,
1. what do they screen for on a blood test before surgery? what exactly are they looking for? what would/could stop the surgery?
2. How long should someone take provera ? I keep reading about all the bad effects it can give, and it maskes me nervous. Most people taking it , only do so for a short time, ( under 3 months, for fibroids, not birth control ) What exactly do they do to stop my bleeding?
thanks for any imput, I am at wits end.
