Re: hysterectomy for a thick uterus lining?
I've had a D&C both ways (asleep and awake), and being put to sleep was much better - you don't even know what's happening. I'm also very terrified of general anesthesia - but it was fine. I had the D&C because my biopsy showed pre-cancerous cells - so I didn't have much of a choice. She also did looking around with a camera like thing (don't remeber the name for that), which is also why I thing the general was better.
In my case no cancer was found,so it cleaned everythig out of there, and the Provera is to keep the lining thin - which it does very well. The reason I'm hoping to stop taking it - there are a few side effects - tender breasts, weight gain, headaches. I thnk when I've gone one full year without a period, I can go off it, and see how I do. When menopause occurs, the lining should stay thin.
Hope this helps.
