Need Advice Please !

Hi Everyone,

I am 65 years old and have been through menopause. I continue to bleed sometimes. Lately it has been more that usual along with some clotting. I have been to my doctor for a physical and everything comes back fine. Why am I still bleeding? Everyone has their own opinions, uterine cancer and endometrial cancer. Has anyone been through this? Any suggestions would be helpful. I am 5'5" 250 lbs and have high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, arthritis, gout and on numerous meds. No one is listening. I don't know which way to go. TIA

Elaine

Re: Need Advice Please !

elaine, if it were me, i'd keep on keeping on at the doctor until i have a satisfactory answer as to what is causing the bleeding. or find a women's clinic where someone will listen to you or at the very least explain why you're bleeding and reassure you that either it's perfectly normal and happens to some women, or takes your concerns seriously and does further tests to discover the cause. who is it that has given their opinion that it's cancer of some type? a medical professional or just a friend or colleague? an opinion is just that, an opinion, not a fact.
as i say, if it were me i wouldn't rest until i have a proper answer. you owe it to yourself to get to the bottom of it. best of luck.
