Re: endometrial polyps
I just had a D&C/hysteroscopy/endometrial ablasion (sp?) 2 weeks ago. I had heavy, clotty periods, to brown tarry discharges for the better part of a year. I went to a new gyno, and he did the surgery. He removed 3 polyps, as well as a few fibroids. He said I'm good as new!!
The surgery was nothing. A little crampy for a few days because of the ablasion, but nothing major. Very slight bleeding for a little over a week, also.
He said the polyps were most likely what was causing my bleeding. I had polyps removed once before with a D&C, and was good for about a year. Hopefully, the ablasion will be an extra step to keep things under control.
Also, I should have very light periods to almost no periods from here on out. My period was due the day after my surgery, and I still didn't start it yet. I'm sure that is from the surgery, but so far so good. Also, I don't have any of the pain I used to get in my ovary area.
