When my doc came in the next morning she asked me if i was having any pain with my periods and i said no. she said that my uterus was mushy. by the time i could ask her what that meant she had changed the subject and headed out the door. I'm sure she'll tell me more at my post op but if anyone may know what this means please let me know. Im very curious right now.
When my doctor visited me the following morning, he also mentioned the "boggy" uterus. I think he put that in his surgical report, and put a question mark after with the adenomyosis remark. The pathology report didn't come back with any comments about adenomyosis, so I'm not sure about it.
I had an endometrial ablation about 13 months prior to my hysterectomy, so I wondered if that had something to do with the "consistency" of my uterus.
From what I understand the ablation should not change the consistancy of the uterus other than thinning everything but I've heard that if you have an underlying condition an ablation can make it flare up.
the endometrial biopsy done before the ablation does not deep enough to be able to get a sample of adenomyosis if you have it. At least that's the way I've understood it.
Hi Cat1k200. Sounds like adenomyosis. My understanding is that this is where cells that should be lining the uterus invade the uterus wall instead. Over time they create the "boggy" or "mushy" uterus and the adenomyosis causes loads of other symptoms that just get worse the longer it goes on. There is no cure for adenomyosis other than surgery. So if it was adeno, then it just confirms that the surgery was the way to go for you (as it was for me). Happy healing. Dont forget to
