hyperplasia-thickness is that an indicator?

Hello everybody,
oey weh...I have a thickness of 12 mm. Thinking back, I think I did not only have the spotting before and after the period for two years, but heavier bleeding at least one year before that. The reg. biopsy did not work for me, so I am scheduled for the D&C and hysteroscopy. I was told that this is really the thing to do with something like that. Reading your experience reassures me about having the D&C. My hubby is currently not home, and I am going through all this on my own and taking care of my two young children. My nerves are really jittery, I have been harboring fears about this for two years, that does not help. I read somewhere that only 1 in 1000 women will have endometrial dysplasia. What a chance.

have someone with you

I would strongly suggest that you have someone with you for a couple of days to help with the kiddo's. You will need to rest for a few days after the D&C. I had mine on Friday and rested over the weekend...I was sure to have Monday as a lite day as well...working, but lite duty.

It is so hard to go thru this, especially alone. So be sure to have a friend, neighbor or church member take you to the procedure and home. ( I believe that is a must. you cannot drive yourself or take a cab in my area). If you lived in my area, I would take you myself.

I am so sorry that you are having to deal with this situation. Please have faith and hang in there. Sometimes the waiting to see what the reports will say can be very hard.

Just know that all your sisters are here for you and will listen to all you have to say.

did you have a lot of pain after the D&C? I will opt for a spinal block ( can't think of the name right now) instead of a full anesthesia. My Gyn assured me that I would be ok enough to look after the children afterwards. Now, I wonder if it was wise to get the appointment when I did. My hubby comes home the following week, and I could have waited another week. On the other hand, I just wanted to get the D&C done as fast as possible. I have not seen my husband in 4 month, and now he comes home to this. Thank you so much for your kind support. I could just cry. You are right waiting for results is not easy. Last year I was told that I might have a brain tumor ( I have trouble with constant dizziness) and had to have an MRI, the week that I had to wait for the results was terrible. Thank goodness, nothing of that sort was found.
I just learned that one of my childhood friends has endometrial hyperplasia, since over 15 years and she is treating it with hormones and is just fine.

Hi Tinka

I had a D&C last September after an ultrasound. The ultrasound showed nothing but the D&C found three polyps which were removed - second time I have had polyps removed!

Had no problems with the procedure at all - in fact back at work the next afternoon. No pain at all, just groggy after the full anaesthetic. I'm sure you will be fine too.
