I had both of these about 3 weeks ago,. I am 50 yrs old and peri-menopausal
.my period has been normal all my life and a month after I turn the big 50 it starts wacking out
I got it the 14th of august and it kept going and going and going, I was away for the weekend and was doubled over in pain and had to take a vicoden I was so bad, well i hadn't bled for a few days so I said phew thats over, well I got a huge suprise when I woke up on sunday morning and stood up, It looked like someone had murdered me
so the tuesday after I went to my GP, I dont have obgyn.well all was well until he wanted to do a endometrial biopsy, OMG I was crying my eyes out,it hurt so bad, then over for a stat ultrasound and a transvaginal unltrasound, I was uncomfortable to say the least and then I had to go home and drink a gallon of water, so the outcome was one big fibroid!!!
the follow up was a week later, slightly anemic so on iron pills and fiber pills.
now I have to wait another week to go to the OBGYN.
now of course,the young doctor I saw at Family Practice says well your options are Hysterectomy, first and formost.
I am waiting to talk with them. I had a horrible day 2 days ago, I have been bleeding nonstop except for a week in between periods, light at first and now heavy,I had to leave work and come home and take a percoset the pain was so intense.
now im flowing heavy again.
so for about a month and a half I have been in a living hell.
I know many of you have gone through years of this and my heart goes out to you.
I cannot afford to stay out of work 2 months, I have no disability or sick time to take. I work in a dental office.
please someone out there give me some hope
