Complex Hyperplasia...after D&C and Laproscopy

Hi, all! Yes, it is very easy for us women to just ignore our symptoms and abnormal bleeding, hoping it will straighten out by itself! It is very important to keep track of menstrual cycles if they are not regular, so that we can show the dr in writing exactly how many days a month we have bleeding or spotting, and if there are large clots, etc. A Pap smear is important also, but it only tests the cells on the outside of the cervix, not any cells in the lining of the uterus. The endometrial biopsy is when the cells inside the uterus are scraped to check for abnormal build-up or atypical cells. (You can request this biopsy if you have abnormal bleeding, but I'm not sure how often insurance will authorize these.) Atypical cells are not cancerous, but they are suspicious and need to be watched. Even if the diagnosis comes back "endometrial cancer" don't panic too much! This is a very slow growing cancer and is "cured" by removing the uterus, usually no chemo needed. So you need to have a close follow-up plan with your dr. (The WebMD article is very good at explaining this.) I hope you all can come to satisfactory decisions with your Gyns about how to treat your hyperplasia, and if that means a hyst, then we will be here to support you! s to all of you!

Complex Hyperplasia...after D&C and Laproscopy

I am new to the site, as I was just diagnosed with Complex Hyperplasia Atypia after having an endomitrial biopsy done 2 weeks ago. My big trip to the castle is April 8th -- talk about everything going fast!! I have been undergoing treatment for PCOS and only started having periods without provera about a year ago. They started out ok...but then went on and on and on. My endocrinologist was not happy with this and sent me back to my gyn for the biopsy. I don't have any major pain associated with the condition, except I think I only have about 1 good week out of every month where I'm not having pms and/or bleeding. I will be having a TAH done and I confess....I'm a bundle of nerves right now!! I have been reading this site since I found out and I do feel better about everything -- it's helping me to keep my sense of humor while facing the unknown...the waiting is bad!!! Good luck to everyone and thanks for such a great, supportive site!!!

Castle visit coming April 15th...

Hi sisters and I'm feeling much better now that I know where I'm headed....I had my post op for the laproscopy visit today instead of the 11th of this month. I'm glad I did now.....I have a fibroid tumor growing on my uterous to add to the Complex hyperplasia.....and a blocked ovarian tube and a cyst on the right ovary.... So my doctor whom I adore ! had a long dicussion of my medical history and my families cancer history. He and I agreed that after 10 years of pain and numerous doctor visits and also I was put on hormones before and couldn't tollerate them back then....It's best to have a hysterectomy. I agree with him for all I have been through !!! He said I would feel so much better without the loss of blood for my seven heavy days and the pain I have had for 10 years and passing all those clots.....!!!! I wonder am I numb right now has it not hit me yet ? or am I so relieved to not worry about the big C and all the PAIN !!!
Thank you all for being here for me and I'll be posting and oh I don't feel like crying as I did before. When I was unsure of things I feel so blue ... Today my doctor so kindly answered all of my questions on my full page that I had written down and I feel lots better and have a positive attitude !!!
They're only gonna take the uterous and not the ovaries !!! So menopause is a few years away hopefully.....Well I'll quit rambling and need to go eat so thanks again everyone I told the nurse and my doctor about this FABULOUS site !!! Wish I had some business cards to give out of hystersisters.com !!!
I hope everyone is feeling happy and well today !
Big hugs to all of you !!!
