post menopausal bleeding and liver disease

I am having some bleeding and really should not. I have been on hrt for about 5 years. I have felt really lousy on and off with a number of other symptoms which make me worry about liver disease. Two weeks ago I had blood tests and the dr said they all came back clear including cancer indictators for female problems. She also did smear tests.

Any help would be great as I am so worried.

Re: post menopausal bleeding and liver disease

Is your Dr going to refer you to a gynaecologist for further investigation of post menopausal bleeding? Post menopausal bleeding is quite common with usually no obvious cause and is more common in women who are using HRT.What makes you worry about liver disease, what other symptoms do you have?
Hormones, ie oestrogen can cause tumors in the liver, but the combined HRT of oestrogen and progesterone should ensure that this doesn't happen.
I had post menopausal bleeding (was not on HRT) and had it investigated- all results were normal. I was worried that it was linked in some way to a liver tumor(FNH) which had been found in May 08 but the Drs think not.

Re: post menopausal bleeding and liver disease

what i would do just to be sure of everything is first obtain a copy of that actual lab sheet(s) and just see where your actual numbers are. the reason being, any changes in the numbers that would go up if something were actually wrong, you need to see where you fall in that "good" range? it could still be 'in range" but at the higher end? or if it is still in the moderate ranges, that would be ideal. anything that shows up at the higher end of that norm scale would show that your numbers, while within the 'norm' are actually going up and could go 'out' of range soon. do you know what i mean?

you should also ask about obtaining an ultrasound on the liver too. there can be alot of real problems when just looking at the actual organ that would just not show up in the numbers yet only because the function has not gotten bad enough at this point to actually even show up on any labs yet. i have a kidney liver disease with really great within the norm numbers despite my ultrasounds looking just horrid as far as cystic damage that is extreme in all organs. i just have not yet had functions impaired enough at this point to actually show up on the labs. so that is the one thing i really do think would help in just 'seeing" the actual liver itself. if that comes up okay, then i really wouldn't worry. but if you really just DO feel that something is not right in your body or with that liver, i would seriously just speak to your doc about obtaining that one ultrasound. AND of course get that copy of your labs too. if both are okay, things should be fine. at least this will help put your worries to rest anyways, therefore your doc really does need to just refer you for the US with no problems. let me know how things go,K? good luck, marcia
