what a shock

I recently underwent an ablation for bleeding and have been more then pleased with outcome. Imagine my surprise when the dr. called and said my D&C showed precancer. (atypical complex hyper) So, now they are recommending hyster and remove ovaries to prevent cancer. Anyone in similiar situation?

I'm sorry to hear that you must make this choice, especially since you just had your ablation and are having good results with that.

I had endometrial hyperplasia without atypia(June 2004), but was told by my GYN that if it became atypical a hysterectomy would be the next step. He put me on Provera (10 days/ mo) and said we would wait and see what happened with my bleeding and he would do another D&C in December 2004. I didn't make it past the end of Sept, when he had to do another D&C to stop the bleeding. That one showed no hyperplasia, so I continued on progesterone, but this time with Prometrium (at my request). It was working okay, the flooding was starting again when I discovered I had a bladder prolapse and the fibroid pain became too much to bear. I had a TAH in March 2005 and have recovered well.

If the hyperplasia had become atypical, I would have opted for the hysterectomy right away. Uterine cancer has a high cure rate when found in the early stages. Use the resource section of this website to learn more about they hyperplasia with atypia, uterine cancer and hysterectomy.

Good luck with your decision and remember you have your sisters to talk to!

Hi, I had a D&C, hysteroscopy, and polypectomy where precancerous uterine tumors were found. I had a tah/bso and am happy to say that all was benign. I'll pray for the same good results for you.

what a shock

Hi M-
I completely understand where you are coming from, I had the same problem when my biopsy came back pre-cancerous and needless to say I felt shocked. I was given the option of having a hyst-and I can tell you that I personally sighed relief knowing that I could have this done! You need to really ask yourself if you want to have more kids, even though I have 3 I did talk to my husband before making the decision to have it done. To me having a hyst meant freedom from my nightmare bleedings, and above all the prevention of future problems of cancer. I love my doctor to pieces, and he was pretty certain that for me there was no other option as the HRT did not work for me as he had hoped. So I made my decision based on his professional guidance, my hubby and most importantly how it would make me feel. Will I miss it? Nah-it was a good thing while it lasted, I am forever grateful for the blessings that came from it, and I know that I will be able to enjoy my children for as long as the Creator so sees it. I wish you all the best and tons of to you and your upcoming decision.
