Spotting 2 years after Endometrial Ablasion
I had an endometrial ablasion done almost 2 years ago and was totally period free until January of this year. For a few months prior to January, I started getting SEVERE period-like cramps, but never a period - so I assumed I was having some sort of digestion problem and was documenting everything I ate. The painful episodes would occur about 3-4 weeks apart and would last a day or two, then I'd be fine. In January, I had an episode so bad that I couldn't even talk. If we weren't in the middle of a snow and ice storm, I would have had my son drive me to the emergency room. I was doubled over in pain and broke out into a cold sweat. I was going to give the pain another hour and, if it didn't go away, I was going to call an ambulance. Fortunately, or unfortunatley, I had a period that night - bright red blood, nothing very heavy, but it lasted for about 2 days. Since then, I have been periodicaly spotting - dark brownish "old" blood.
Has this happened to anyone after an ablasion? I am going to be making an appointment with my doctor, but I like to go into my appointments with as much info as possible. If this happened to others, I won't be too concerned. But if this isn't "normal", I may have to fight for testing. You know how some doctors can be!!
Thanks for any info.
