Worried, can anyone give me your thoughts?

I am post meno for 13 yrs (age 60) Five years ago I had abnormal bleeding. Did the ultrasound and biopsy and had no cancer but lining was 10mm. I am loaded with fibroids though and have never been able to have children. The Dr said since I am post menopausal the fibroids should shrink. I had a d&c then. Well, 2 weeks ago I started spotting again. I just had the ultrasound again and all fibroids look the same (one is a little bigger) but the lining is now at 8mm. I'm going for the biopsy in a few days. I'm worried this time because I have abdominal bloating and low back pain. One thing that is throwing things off for me is, I have IBS and those could be symptoms also. I know that bleeding can come from the fibroids like before, but this back pain is scaring me. My mind is all over the place. Can someone give me your thoughts/experience? Thank you so much.

**Update**
Could not have the biopsy. I had a terrible reaction to the misoprostol pill they gave me to take beforehand. Nasty nasty pill. Caused a LOT of dizziness and excessive bleeding. Will wait 1 more week. Dr said the cervix is bleeding.

Anyone?

I am sorry you are dealing with this. Yes, the fibroids could be the cause of the bleeding. And fibroids or polyps can also make the lining appear thicker than it is. It must be really frustrating that the biopsy cannot be done. I would think the next step would be a D&C from which they could then do a biopsy as you had done 5 years ago. Hoping this ends up being nothing serious and is all soon behind you!

Just wanted to post an update. They found that it is a polyp. D&C scheduled. Thank you all for your help.

Glad to hear they found the cause and are going to remove it. And as you know from experience, a D&C is a relatively simple procedure. Hope all goes well and you don't have to go through this again!
