emmy...no cancer....that's great! so glad to hear that. i realize you still have some steps to go through, but i'm sure you're feeling a lot of relief now. if they've removed your lining and the polyps....you should stop bleeding. i'm not sure how long you would bleed after that type of procedure, but i would think once you start healing that it will decrease until it stops. just so glad to hear everything is negative. you hang in there. you're one tough cookie! keep me updated okay?

This week 4 months after stopping tomaxifen I have been spotting, at first brown then a pink to red, cramps, mood swings, low back pain, it lasted a day then stopped, and started again a day after stopping (cramps never stopped, this has gone on for a week now and I was hoping someone might know whats going on. I am a little nervous and need advice. I will be 49 in a couple months and I feel like I'm 11 years old again
I do have 3 doctor appointments next week Onc, Gyn and Primary.
Thanks for helping me,
Emmy

Re: Spotting after 5 1/2 years

Janie & Booboo the bleeding has stopped for now, surgery went fine it was like a very good nap with little pain was home in a few hours and slept the rest of the day, had a few days of cramping but did as the doc said ( rest for about 10 days) and believe me I did.
Janie I hope all went well with you. Let us know.
Booboo how's it going with you?
Thank you all
Emmy

Re: Spotting after 5 1/2 years

emmy, that is wonderful news for you!!!! So happy all is going well. I have mine this Tuesday afternoon. Doc tried to schedule for morning but will not get into surgery till 3:00 in the afternoon. So more than likely out of hospital by 7 or 8 and home to sleep I am sure. Took next day off. But then the last two days I have two classes I need to teach each day. So I am really hoping that there will not be a lot of bleeding. No more than a usual period, (if I remember what that was like) lol!! She told me I could go back to work the next day if I felt like it, but decided to take it off since the procedure is not till later afternoon. Again, thanks so much for the response and I'll let you know how it goes when I get home.....keep your fingers crossed and sneak in a little prayer too Thanks everyone.

Re: Spotting after 5 1/2 years

Janie bleeding was very light on and off but lasted a good 3 weeks and seemed to get worse if I did to much so take it easy and no heavy lifting. Try not to worry to much and keep us updated.
Sending a prayer your way.

Thank you all

so glad everything worked out. things are going the same for me. i don't see my gyna until the 19th of this month, but i'm thinking it can't be too serious since they haven't notified me. had to change the date on my colonoscopy due to hypoglycemia problems. if i can't fast...i can't do the test. so now that's not until november. gastro doc doesn't think i have anything serious other than hemi's and ibs. glad the specialist appt's are slowing down now. seeing my internest next month and unltrasounds on my neck...again...lol. thinking of moving back to my home town since i went and visited for the long weekend. think i just might buy a condo and retire there in a few years. we'll have to see how things go. so things are good with you medically...how are things at home?

Re: Spotting after 5 1/2 years

So glad all is well with you, for me everything is fine at home.
Sounds like it's gonna be good new's for you too, my doc always calls if something was not right with tests.
Funny I was just diagnosed with ibs (small world)
Moving home to retire sounds good, I'm still in my hometown and kinda wish I had been able to see more but stayed here and raised my kids (hubby and I want to retire to FL.)
Good luck and let me know how things go.
Emmy

Re: Spotting after 5 1/2 years

Hi to each of you!!! Had my D&C yesterday, easiest surgery ever. Had a fantastic team, not even a sore throat from the tubing. Had surgery @ 9:00 am and was home in bed by 1:30. Very little bleeding, but today have some cramping. Did not feel any yesterday, but was more than likely left over meds in my blood stream that kept them covered. Doctor said my insides were as smooth as a "babys butt"!!! Did not even have much to scrape. Will have pathology report in a couple days. Follow up with her in two weeks. Back to work tomorrow, so today staying low. Watching Halmark movies...my husband laughs at me....says I drive him crazy, but I like love stories...so who cares if I drive him crazy, I deserve today after yesterday, right? Good luck to both of you.....stay in touch. janie

hi emmy. went to the gyna today and he's not too concerned at the moment, but is sending me to a different specialist cause he wants me to have a histograph or histogram, or whatever they call it...lol. says they're going to cauterize my cervix so i won't bleed any more and due to the fact that i have sjogrens and haven't had sex in many many years...my vagina is atrophying, soooo...when they do the surgery, he's going to install some kind of estrogen pellet or something in the cervix or uterus....wherever it goes, if i decide i want to have sex again. i was worried when he talked of it because i suffered from estrogen overload for many years and had to stay on hormones for about 10 years because of it. would cause my heart rate to stay near 200bpm for 10 to 12 hours. anyway....he said that the effects of this type of estrogen stay only in the uterus....doesn't go into the bloodstream at all. funny....i haven't had sex in sooooo many years and have gotten so used to it now, that i don't think about it any more...lol. so...doc says that women should have babies. when we don't...it can cause these kinds of problems. oh well....just wasn't in the cards for me, i guess...lol. glad all is good with you now. keep in touch.
sometimes we do it early and sometimes we do it later in life. i think retiring in florida would be a well deserved retirement. you go girl!!

i was never worried about d and c's. had so many of them when i was younger due to blood clotting, which i think that my i.u.d. caused. glad yours was a breeze and you're on the road to recovery. enjoy those movies...i love them too...lol. so now...no sex for a couple of weeks...oh and don't go swimming either, (something about chlorinated water) and you'll be good as new in no time! and if it drives your husband crazy...just tell him that's why you married him...lol. all the best.

Re: Spotting after 5 1/2 years

Booboo, how's it going? I had the hystoscopy thing done when I had the D&C and ablation, it's a camera that can go in and remove polyps and such, they use it to be able to remove all and so they dont miss anything they want to send for tests. Hope everything went well.

Janie, Let us know how your test results come out.
Good luck to both of you.
Emmy
