New and terrified

I recently was diagnosed with Extreme Endometrial Hyperplasia with Atypia. Everything is happening so fast. I feel like I have been so responsible with checkups and suddenly things went from abnormal pap to a D&C to this.

My insurance company is giving me hell too. Long story.

I'm very, very depressed.

I was being told that it's not cancer and then heard, lets hope there is no was scheduled very fast.

Just breath everything will be ok. Find out everything you can and ask your doctor to explain everything to you. Make sure you write down your questions so you don't forget to ask the. When is your surgery? Just had mine 3 days ago. It hasn't been to bad. Do you know which one your having?

Thank you for replying. Surgery is sched for Oct 4th. The doc recommended the Robotic thing. Any one have that done?

I'm glad to hear your recovery is going well. I'm nervous because it took a week for me to get over the DNC! They removed two polyps but said it wasn't a big deal.

How did you decide on the surgeon?

Re: New and terrified

Well I he has been my doctor for 8 years and he is the co founder of laproscopic surgery and he and one other surgeon in my state are the only ones that do single port laproscopic hysterectomy. He is a wonderful doctor. I have heard the divinci is about the same recovery time as mine feeling pretty good after 2 weeks. I will let you know. I have had many problems and he had felt like I I waited any longer to do the surgery then it could lead to much worse things. It was a very hard decision for me to make seeing how I'm only 28 with one child but in the end I feel I chose right. I rather be healthy and feel like I should feel. I hope everything works out for you. And if you need someone to talk to let me know. Jen

Thanks Jen,

I'm 50, never had kids. I tried. I do have wonderful nieces and nephews though.

When one of the Oncologists said they would be removing the cervix as well, it pushed me over the edge. I started thinking that they were just taking the uterus. It just snow balled from there. I suppose the best thing is to do it asap..

I'm terribly depressed. I'm pretty sure it's clinical and will call my doc tomorrow.
