Gestational trophoblastic desease.

Hi.
I am scheduled for TVH in 4 weeks time. I have been experiencing dysfunctional bleeding for a while and have had treatment for cervical dysplasia.Recently had hysteroscopy which revealed placental site nodule.
1.Have tried to find out exactly what this is and was wondering if anyone else out there is having /or had a hysterectomy for this reason? Also my surgeon said that he would remove one or both ovaries if he discovered any cause whilst operating.
2. Can anyone confirm that it is possible for a surgeon to make a judgement about the condition of ovaries without using a lap.camera. Just that I still have this worry that the real problem is ovarian and these won't be investigated at time of surgery. I am not too anxious but in the past I have had ruptured ectopic pregnancy that resulted in left tube removal, blood transfusion, and personal trauma!On that occassion I had the same gut feeling I have now but couldn't assert my fears to doctors until it was too late.
I am a new-girl-on-the-block and look forward to a rely.Ta! Surfflower

Hi

Welcome to HysterSisters! I'm so sorry you are facing surgery but so glad you found us! You will find a lot of great information, shared experiences, and always a lot of support and s!

I found a site that might be helpful to you.

http://www.mskcc.org/mskcc/html/1909.cfm

I didn't have my TVH for this reason, but I can certainly relate to the dysfunctional bleeding. I was curious about how my doctor would see my ovaries, too. I asked him at my Pre-Op appointment and he told me that once he was in there, he would have a bird's eye view of them. When I awoke in recovery, he told me they looked good and I was able to keep them. So for me, my doctor was able to see them just fine once my uterus was removed.

I wish you the best in your research and your upcoming surgery and again!

Hi Deb.
Thanks so much for your reply.I am feeling far more reassured now- I should give my Gyne/onc a bit more credit! (i do have 100% confidence in him).
The site you mentioned is good too-lots of infore GTD. I think what I have is residue from a previous pregnancy-my last being 6 years ago.Therefore nothing too serious.
I have my pre-op appointment soon and will use this appointment to ask any questions I think of.

Bye for now
