HPV Enlarged Uterus

Ok, maybe I should have stated all of this, and asked more questions on my prior posting. I guess I was just scared and numb when I heard the word "cancer" yet again in my life.
I was first told I had abnormal growths and HPV when I was 17 (my first pregancy and I didn't want to hear any more).
I am now 33 and have had several abnormal paps and a biopsy done which showed only mild displaysia. I went back for one more pap and it was normal (the doctor thought he got it all) and thought all was well. That was 2 years ago. With 5 children now I rarely have had time to see the doctor and I thought my pain, heavy bleeding, and clots the size of my fist (sometimes larger) were normal since my previous doctor had seen me numerous times and assured me that there was nothing wrong with me and that it was all in my head.
My last visit to my doctor alarmed me. That was when we found my enlarged uterus. He said all the pain I have had is not normal.
I had an ultra sound done, no fibroids. But he says I have polyps and he's pushing a hysterectomy. I have my choice of a D&C or another form of biopsy which I'm having done on March 24th. (If I decide to do the in office visit kind, right now my brain is so fried I can't remember which is which).
My fiance has been great durring all of this, but I'm still concerned. Why wasn't my displaysia mentioned? My pap this time came out normal (thank you God) but then again I know that things can be missed in a pap because some other cells could be the ones that (brain cramp) are infected I guess is the term.
I don't know what questions to ask, or how to know what is the best route for me. I'm looking and searching for tons of information.
He told me I'm too young to have cancer, so I shouldn't worry about it too much, but with my past and my symptoms he would like to rule it out before the hysterectomy.
If anyone else has gone through this please let me know. I'm on an emotional roller coaster. I feel like I'm worrying over nothing, then I feel like I'm not paying attention to it all enough (at least my fiance thought that for 2 years now).
Please help me know what to ask prior to my visit.
Thank you all for your help.

My own problem was ovarian cancer, but I wanted to get your post back up to the top.
I know some ladies can offer you some good advice.
I am guessing you are going to have an endometrial biopsy in the office? I had one of those done before my hysterectomy.
If I recall, I felt just a second of severe cramping and then it was done.
It's great that your PAP was normal. It sounds like now the problem is with your uterus. From what I have read, whenever there is abnormal bleeding it is a good idea to have a D and C performed. So hopefully your endometrial biopsy is just the first step in finding the problem.
Best wishes to you.

I've PM'd you with a thread that might be helpful--it was suggested by someone who'd read your post.
