Had U/S looks like I still have my UTERUS!!!!!?????

Here we go; I will try to explain the best I can. This morning I spoke to the gyn/onc. He was apologizing all over the place for the radiologists scaring me like this. He called down there to tell them that THIS IS NOT A UTERUS! He said that they really should listen to the patient and read the referral notes. My regular gyn is not an endo expert, so she just had no clue. Any how Dr.L the gyn/onc said that it could be many things, but assured me it was not my bladder as they had good views of that. He said it could be the stump of my cervix and maybe it has VERY dense adhesions on it. He said it could be an endometrioma... he said, he did not know but it is NOT my uterus, as he was looking at my path report, and he knows took it out! I have an HMO so I just cannot go to any radiology group I want. I do like my medical group, so I don't want to change for that. I will never go back to a PPO as that is where I had financial nightmares! So, far my HMO has been great with paying EVERYTHING and is pretty quick on getting referrals.

Anyway, now I am expecting a call to schedule MORE surgery. I am also, waiting on a referral to a pain specialist.
As soon as I know I will update.
Thank you all so much!
Carrie

Well, it sounds like your gyn/onc was reassuring at least on the point of whether or not you have a uterus.

Bravo for him on saying that they should listen to the patient and READ the notes! Gosh, how much aggravation would we be saved if they'd just take a moment to make themselves familiar with the information in hand! I hope he makes that comment to those who need to hear it most!

Well, I'm pulling for you, dear. Keep us posted!

((Carrie)),
Glad you got to speak with your Surgeon Usually when they do U/S's they have us consume so much water so they can locate the bladder & not confuse it with other organs.
Hopefully, they will soon be able to determine more of what the U/S revealed

I also used the Duragesic patch for 1.5 yrs and like ((Kim)) didnt experience the loopy, spaced out feeling..only relief!!

Good Luck with everything...I do hope you will keep us posted on your progress and how things are going...((hugs))
