Biopsy/D&C found polyp not seen on ultrasound

After 3 months of intermittent post-menopausal bleeding, I had an ultrasound done 2 weeks ago and, today, an outpatient biopsy/D&C/hysteroscopy. The hysteroscopy found a polyp not seen on US. Ultrasound reported 12mm uterine thickness, but not the polyp.

Surgeon believes whomever read the US confused the polyp for 12mm uterine thickness. To confirm this, I'm wondering if I should ask for a follow-up US now that the polyp is gone. (Biopsy report not yet back)

Has anyone else heard of this or had a similar experience?
